Happy New Year!!
Did you stay up? Did you watch the ball drop? Kiss your love at midnight?
I did, which was pretty amazing, considering we are usually sound asleep at midnight.
I am liking the thought of New Year's more and more as I get older, especially this year. It will be FULL of art. Art classes, doing art, art projects big and small and art shows.
The other part I like about a New Year is instead of a resolution, I pick a word for the year. I've seen on several blogs that this is the hot topic for January. Guess what? We did it LAST year!
Do you remember this post?
My main word was "intention." It was a terrific word, I used it all year. It came to mind in several situations and was so much better for me than a resolution. Intention was a word with some "oomph" behind it and reminded me of what I wanted to do during the year so much more than a resolution.
I'd like very much to do it again this year.
Do you have a word? Or perhaps a color, like my friend, Deb?
I have two words this year. They both have come from finding the most amazing quote and working on
I truly believe that when we have truth, we have hope. If we have neither one, there is a big hole in our lives.
The other lesson I am learning is that, when I keep speaking the TRUTH, my voice does stop shaking, and I find HOPE.
So, my friends, what about you?
Do you have a word? Maybe just one that spurs you on for the year?
Let's share them in the comments and I'll put them all together in a separate post.
Here's to a wonderful 2012!
