HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
LIFE ISN'T ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS
IT'S ABOUT LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN
I started out writing about what I have been doing and decided to delete it all and just write about this being a New Year. I turned 70 two days ago and so it really is a new year for me. I put my Christmas decorations away today and tomorrow I will start going through my cupboards and getting rid of things I no longer use. Things I have been holding onto because they have sentimental value but I no longer have use for. I hope my daughters will take most of it. I feel like my life is cluttered up with what my life used to be. I have things that were my Mom's that I have held onto but there is no need to any more, she is, and always will be, in my heart. I live in such a small space that I really want to feel uncluttered. I don't need to carry STUFF around any more. I hold on to STUFF long after it has outlived its usefulness. A habit learned growing up during WWII.
I had a long conversation with my Granddaughter on my birthday and I thing we are well on the way to healing our relationship. I also had a phone call from a dear friend that I haven't spoken to for two or three years. It was a healing birthday!
Yesterday my youngest daughter took out for lunch for my birthday and we wandered up and down 4th Avenue buying little odds and ends. It was a fun day. I hope the rest of the year is as positive as the start.
I made a couple of ATC's, thought it would be a good way to get into the swing of things, after not creating for a while.
I hope to post more regularly now and reconnect with my creativity.
