I'm not so inspired to find a word or words to live by each year partly becasue it would be the same two words each year. Go. Do. Nothing has changed, I live by those two words every day. Every day I have things I must do and I don't want to do, but I do them anyways ... Go. Do.
I want inspiration to just leap out at me and cause me to create masterpieces ... instantly, but this is almost never the case. Instead, I must go, do anyways ... just start.
Go, do ... without a plan, just start putting color on a canvas, just start stitching on a piece of osnaburg.
Go, do ... put random words or phrases on that canvas and then add another layer of color ... don't think too much, write what comes to mind.
I love to sing Amazing Grace. It's the song I sing in my head all the time ... those are the words that spilled out of me while I was journaling on this canvas.
Go, do ... cover up the chaos with yet another layer of paint. Watch as the words are washed away with transapent paints. Not gone entirely but covered up just a bit.
And then ... know when to stop and start it all over again.
