52 Lists: things that make you feel powerful

For me, the best place for a fresh start or to begin a new project is on my birthday - the beginning of my year. So the year I was 21, I did a photo a day project (that ended up including an internship in Cleveland, meeting/dating my now-husband Adam, and going to New York to work for Vogue Knitting - so I'm retrospectively glad that I committed to documenting that particular year!), and the year I was 24, I knitted the sky (one row on a scarf each day in the color of the sky). So for 27, I'm doing lists. I'm going to roughly follow along with the book The 52 Lists Project.

A list of the things that make me feel powerful

1. Solitude
2. Making something with my hands
   2a. and my skills
   2b. and my creativity
3. Teaching someone else how to do it, too
   3a. and watching the wonder of it wash over them
4. Fixing something that's broken (be it mechanical or situational)
5. Speaking out and speaking up
