Hello, my friends. And happy, happy New Year!
I'm an optimist and believe in new beginnings and the fresh start that a new year implies. Always, always.
Even when the past year has been, shall we say, complicated.
The results are not always quite what I would like, but who am I to question fate, God, the stars?
I do my bit. I try to steer in the direction I'd like to go. And I have to trust that the rest will be taken care of. That it's all for the greater good and, you know, character building.
I am making my vision board, as I have now for years and years. Even though looking at one at the end of the year can sometimes be half laughable, half painful. If I look at one from a few years ago, though, I can be bowled over by how much has come true.
Like the one that was all about writing a book, back when writing even a magazine article wasn't remotely on the horizon. It's a little spooky actually. But in a good way.
I'm not one to tell people what to do* but give it a try.
* Unless it involves kids' art or seriously awesome art materials, then I suppose I can be pretty bossy.
