January is the month for resolutions, right?
After revisiting my Meyers Briggs personality profile over the holidays, I was reminded that in order to get anything done as an ENFP I need to set goals and deadlines.
“An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals.”
You don’t say?
Some might say that my fellow ENFPs and I tend to be ambitious with projects but our lack of deadlines creative spirit sometimes gets in the way. So here we are a year (or so) since my last blog post and I’m ready to give it another shot. As I reflected on the past year, I felt like a creative outlet was missing. I’m sure my personality profile has something to say about that too.
“You are always looking for a new environment…blah, blah, blah.”
Bottom line is I miss writing and while I don’t know how much others enjoy reading my blog, writing has and probably always will be my outlet. I guess you could say it’s in my genes. On second thought, I don’t guess. It is in my genes. Both of my parents are writers. I come from a family of communicators. It’s just what we do.
In the past, I’ve posted mostly about parties, food and crafts. And while that does take up a big chunk of my creative life, this year I’m going to open it up and share other stories as well. I like to run. I live in a pretty cool city. I have some fascinating friends and family. Anyone who follows me on Instagram or Facebook knows I am slightly obsessed with photos of my puppy. Don’t judge me. He’s cute and has a personality to make anyone giggle. And in the 4 months since I first laid eyes on him, I think I’ve observed enough dog-related social situations to write a sitcom. No doubt he and the rest of the dog-park world will be a topic for posts this year.
As for future content, I’m open to suggestions! One of my favorite things about social media is its ability to connect others in new and exciting ways. But I believe social media is only as successful as its contributors. And if I must circle back to that oh-so-spot on personality profile, I am nothing without my external environment. So bring on the comments.
I’ll wrap up my first and (hopefully not last) post of 2013 with a list of my resolutions. Hopefully the accountability and publishing factor will give me the incentive I need.
