The New Book

Oh wonder of wonders!  I love when a new book comes into my heart.  I was drowning in all my notes as you can see. I bought this nifty bulletin board to chart my chapters. Suddenly all the chapters came together.  Yes, as an artist, it’s so good for me to have the visual in front of me.  All these notes are now neatly arranged by chapters in my spiral notebook and my brain!  Let the writing begin!

2018 Resolution? … To Make NO Resolutions!

Onward into the New Year we go. Some are deep into their goals for the year. Some have weight loss on their minds, others may have travel destinations…still others are entertaining new attitudes about life in general…be nicer to people, live life on purpose, etc..

I found that the New Year has me in slow motion. I have a few ideas, but my usual clamor for my “Word For The Year” or my Grand Goals is just not happening.

I am in waiting mode. For so many years I have hopped through hoops and done what I was told. I’ve tried to please so many people that I lost myself along the way.

Okay….so I do have a goal..my one goal right now is simple. Toss it!

I am scaling down in all areas. As a visual person I find that too much stuff shuts me down..I need quiet and serene and clean. There will be a mass clean up in my studio. There will be rooms painted and the beginning of all things new. I am completely relying on God to show me the way. I am working on listening for His voice and He is speaking.

I am changing things up. If a person wants change they have to be willing to do things differently. 2018 will be full of adventure. Right now I feel like Abraham, not knowing where I am going….but it turned out ok for him!

Happy New Year Everyone!
