Call it a wish list if you like, but drag it out and you might find some long forgotten dreams of artistic endeavours that you can actually benefit from.
If you don’t have a list, devise one. If you just have ideas in your head, get them down on paper. I’d also suggest breaking your list into 3 sections, or categories.
Here are some ideas:
These might be art materials you don’t really need but would like to have anyway, just to experiment with. Or, they could be small things which feel too frivolous or unnecessary to spend money on. (For instance, a subscription to an art-related magazine, or a visit to an art gallery or exhibition.)
Things that would cost you a little more, either financially or in time. That’s why I use the word input. . . these items will require you to put in a little extra effort if you want to attain them.
Items dreams are made of, the things you’ll probably need to save hard for, work hard for and dream big for. But listen, they are ACHIEVABLE! If you save a little, put by a little, and work an extra hour here and there, you’ll find ways to make these yours. The key is motivation. Stick up pictures of those items, use them as a desktop wallpaper, etc.
Make sure to have fun with your list too. . . it should never add pressure to your life. Instead, give yourself a challenge, and reward yourself with one item when you succeed. Or celebrate your birthday with one.
Keep your wish list posted where you can see it each day. The more you see it, the more you’ll be motivated to put in a little extra effort to obtain what’s on your list.
Remember, in life you only get out what you put in. . . so good luck, and may all your wishes come true!
