Every year you hope that *this* is the year you get it together; but for me, it's often a false start, followed by lost time to lost health...

This year though.

The Kensingtons- two of our Alters- being open with me, was likely the best thing they could have done. And I think they know that. I think that's why they came clean.

And now I'm taking leaps, I'm following schedules, I'm finishing projects, and mostly, I'm setting achievable goals.

Alters aren't meant to work alone,
and it shows.

One of the Biggest tells that it's going well, is our 'Doodle Diary': a page a day, whether a dot, a collage, or a full painting, we just Draw.

It's the 23rd. We've missed One so far.

Previously the furthest I got in a daily challenge was about four days.

Gosh I've learnt so much from doing this book! We're cleaning up the images slowly, so we'll post them here when they're ready.

But yes! Considering our absence (besides lurking), I thought a little update was fair.

2019 consisted of a lot of adjusting to a whole different way of life, and we were swallowed up into the maw of mental health issues. So we lost a lot of time, or got stuck in particular projects, or I- once again- got fixated on something out of passion or panic.

Often too, I avoid places like Mastodon because of striving for perfection; and that normally causes fear. I'm working on that too. 🌟
