I love the end of the year.
It gives me time to reflect on the passing year.
I am cleaning out my studio this week.  Pulled in a large trash container and so far, it's been filled once and working on #2.  Good to get fresh surroundings along with a fresh perspective for next year.

I have a lot to be grateful for.

I have worked hard to bring more business in, and happy to say my hard work is paying off.
In doing so, I have neglected my own health at times, and most importantly, my art.

So for the NEW YEAR, I am going to focus on trying to keep more
in balance.

That means, more time for me.  Eating healthier, exercising more, you know, all those
New Year resolutions that we all make.  I am a giver, but not so much to myself.

I am turning a page in a lot of areas of my life this year.  Learning to forgive.  Learning to let go.
Learning to only allow the positive into my daily life.  Counting my blessings.
So much unneccessary junk that pulls me down, I now know it's too toxic for me.
Toxic attitudes, toxic people. 
Thanks, but no thanks.

will be exciting.
I have new ideas for my business. 
My beautiful kids are moving back which means I won't be a faraway granny any more.
I want to try new art mediums.
I am scheduling a PLAY day for myself at least twice a month, minimum.

Life is too short.
Losing a good friend to cancer at way too young of an age.
Makes you think, you know.
Precious time whirls by.

So I will walk with purpose and intent and keep myself

blessings to all
