Creative Collective- Thrive

I had a lot of fun making and stamping this!

I had a lot of fun making and stamping this!

Today I’m linking up with Melyssa for Creative Collective. One of my goals this year is to be more creative, so this couldn’t have come at a better time! And once I saw the prompt for the first one I got SO excited! I definitely meant to post this earlier, but I forgot. Typical. Better late than never, I suppose! I’m also working on a couple more related projects for my new apartment, so I’ll be working with the word Thrive quite a bit.

This word means a lot to me and is something I really want to strive for this year. Last year was a big year of transitions. Transitioning out of college and into teaching, then out of teaching and into the world or politics and business. Transitioning from dorm life to living alone to living with my family again and back to living alone. From Atlanta to Boise to Northern Idaho and back to Atlanta.

The quote that my word of the year is based from.

Now that I’ve settled (for a little while anyway) here in Atlanta, I want to allow myself and push myself to thrive in this environment. I want to thrive in my new job. I want to thrive living alone in the city and in my social environment. I want to thrive in this new life I’m creating; in my relationships (both friendships and romantic,) emotionally, and physically.

I have high hopes for this year as I establish myself as a young adult before heading into graduate school.

It’s time for me to thrive!

If you want to join in on the fun, check out the link up for others that are being more creative this year as well!

  1. Wow – it sounds like you have been through a lot this past year! Thrive sounds like the perfect word for you – and what a great ambition! To not just get through each day, or settle for where you are but to thrive where you are and in what you do! I can’t wait to see what you continue to come up with through the Creative Collective. I too would like to be more creative – don’t you just feel more like yourself and more relaxed when you are sitting and making something? Great post!


    • Thanks so much! It’s so exciting to see what everyone creates through the Creative Collective. It’s such a wonderful way to de-stress and pause for a moment and create. This year has definitely been a year of change for me but I have faith that this year will bring good things and I am going to try to really thrive in this new life I’ve been making for myself.
