I hope you all had a very wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! The holidays kept me quite busy this year with shopping, decorating, cooking, wrapping, hosting, etc. Every year I vow to simplify my life during the holidays, and yet every year it seems I continue to get wrapped up in it all.
But I'm back in the swing of things now, and excited for the promise a new year holds! I love the idea that with each new year we get to start over, to begin again. And this year is no different. The prospects and possibilities of what "could be" makes me feel all squiggly inside. I love to imagine all the good things that can happen, the paintings I will create, the happiness I will feel. Some say this is living in a fantasy world, with your head in the clouds. Others, like me, believe great things come from positive thoughts.
LifeBook 2013 is already in full swing. Already we've had several classes with awesome instructors and fun, new techniques. My first project, "Fairy Art Mother" cheers me on with positive words of encouragement!
I hope you, too, will remember to believe in yourself and recognize how special you are! And when you start to feel life weighing you down, just keep going and "keep on keepin' on!"
