Usually by now I already have my list of goals for the year, my calendar all freshened up, my word picked out and excited about the coming year. This year has started slow. So with a little help from my Mom, she sent a cute ecard yesterday with some ideas for my goals. I’ve coped a few from that card and added a few of my own and so I at least have that much done. I have picked my word too. This year it is Trust. With all I have to look forward to, it just seems the right word to focus on. I still need to freshen up my calendar with birthdays.
My first word was Believe and it opened up a beautiful faith for me. Certainly more than I expected or thought about when the word came to me. Oh how I enjoyed following that word for a year, and it’s still my favorite. It haunted me for a couple months at the end of 2011. So when I discovered a class from Ali Edwards about a word for the year, I just knew I had to take that class and so glad I did. Last year I thought my word was Celebrate and actually played with it until July. I had a celebration tree I redecorated every month, now it still sits in July mode, dusty and sad. Read below for the reason why. Otherwise skip to the last paragraph and my list.
This year will be different for me, all adventure. I have been going through a divorce and the marriage will be finished sometime end of Feb. I have told family and a few friends, but this is the first time I have said anything public. I will be moving across the country from Wisconsin to Washington State sometime beginning of March. I have moved a lot in my life, military (Navy) at the age of 19 and lifestyle until early 30′s. So the move isn’t anything I haven’t done before, just not alone. I’m not worried, actually excited about the move. I have been doing tons of research and will enjoy everything coming my way.
It’s funny now, but when my old site crashed I was only into the divorce by a week. My life seemed devastating at the time. With time off of my creative world (which I MISS more than I can stand somedays), I have had time to put things in prospective, get things packed up, donated and ready to move on and it will be a BIG move for sure. So not to bore you with the details here’s my list for the new year in no particular order to be acheived.
Happy New Year to all and I hope to blog a little more and move my site back into life. I won’t be setting up regular ramblings like before, but hope you find life, fun and laughter with me over the next year. I would love to hear from you so comment below or email me at email@example.com
