Happy New Year!
It’s been awhile since I’ve felt like I could take a few moments and post something on the blog.
I’ve been busy juggling more things than I could possibly juggle , dropping more than I care to think about.
I've had 2 years in a row that have been quite challenging for me.
When 2012 was approaching, I wasn’t sure I could go into it with all the hope and excitement that I had when 2010 and 2011 were at my doorstep...because, as much as I proclaimed that those years were gonna be my best ones yet, they were filled with challenges that , for me, were above and beyond what I ever imagined I could walk through, back to back.
I know that in all my trials , I have grown. I may have fought it and may have had a few ( okay, several! ) melt downs along the way, but I’ve grown.
My personality is one of having her ducks in a row, as much as humanly possible . Not perfect, not everything in it’s place, but just your average ducks in a row personality.
For those of you that don’t know, one of my occupations consist of merchandising and creating vignettes. I am a visual person and I love creating and living in an atmosphere that is soothing and filled with decor that bring me joy.
This season of my life has been everything but ducks in a row. The last 18 months I’ve lived in a home that looks like a storage unit.. My gardens that I took so much time to grow and nurture , look neglected and unloved. My sweet dogs and Mr. Higgens the cat, have had to take a back seat to what our normal routine has been....and my business has taken a significant hit. All the little and big things in life that I took for granted have been turned upside down.
I’ll be honest. I have some fear announcing that I’m going to have a banner year, just because of the past declarations that I have declared ...but I’m going to do it anyway. I believe it is important and imperative to speak out those things that we want and dream of..... speaking out those things that aren’t , as if they were.
The power of our thoughts and words are very important , they bring forth what we envision and speak.
I also say that to any of you that have gone through some rough seas and wonder what is next that you are going to have to endure. Say to yourself....”I’m gonna have a banner year” ...and say it out loud so you hear it. Lets see what happens. Lets see if we do have a banner year. ( I’d even take normal, but I’m reaching for the stars with “ banner” ! )
Wishing you the very best in 2012.
Thanking each and everyone of you that have been so loyal to follow me on my journey. Means so much to me.
