Millions of Thoughts about longarm quilting in Calgary, quilting design, family, travel...life.
Indeed! It's that time of year. Seems like this last one passed in a hurry, perhaps this year I'll take a little more time to stop and smell the roses. If I had a view like that I'd spend a LOT of time staring out the window!
Yes, I love this time of year. I buy new, clean notebooks and journal more and make lists for my life. It also gives me a license to just throw out out stuff that has been weighing me down and start fresh.
Nope. (I am not a reflective type.) I usually make one very small "resolution"- like last year I said I was going to label my quilts. And I didn't. I sort of just wallow in my own messy gluttony. It is what it is. My husband sometimes makes mocking comments about the unhinged-ness in my family and my sister says, "Just OWN the crazy. You gotta OWN it." That can be applied to anything. Just own the _____. (Generally, in my case, it's MESS. Well, and CRAZY.) It's much easier than trying to change and improve.
Haha, Lisa cracked me up! And yes I sit and ponder...and make lists. But your list was pretty perfect. So I'm going to adopt that one as well. Happy New Year, Andrea!
I think it's natural to reflect at the end of a year. What worked. What didnt. What you want to change. What you want to retain. Making a list of people that deserve an arse kicking in 2011 (oh no? That must just be me then)Completely agree with the delightful Lisa. (although I hatsen to add I'm not crazy and that's not denial talking!)
If that was the view out of my window I don't think I'd be doing much else apart from lose myself in thought too!
