This is a question I've been asking myself lately. Am I looking for a change? Do I want to do something different with my life, adventure out in an area I've never been, travel to a new place? What am I searching for, what is missing, where do I need to improve, what can I be better at, what new things can I learn? So many questions... Here's a small portion of what I'm yearing for and thinking about this year:
1. More quiet time - I'd love to have more time to be able to read a good book, or just bird watch (which I love to do) or watch a great movie. Seems simple right, but with the hectic lifestyle I'm sure we all live sometimes this is easier said than done. Quiet time recharges my soul.
3. I'm always striving to learn something new. I love watching my friends and learning from them. I think they are the best teachers and while I may not tell them this, they offer me a new take on things I may not have thought of before, a new craft, a new way to do something different better, faster, than how I did it before, or they just inspire me. You inspire me by your blogs, your comments, the things you write about (Yes Ms. Trash you know you inspire me and when you write that book it's going to be a best seller) and even from those that don't have blogs but will occassionally just drop me a line, you make my day. I'm always interested to see what J&J of The Barn House are up to, I think they are on to something with all they do on their farm, their shows and soon their online venture. Debra's daily writings feed my soul, Shelley's displays are just what I need, Theresa's attention to details inspires me, Anne's hard work to get out there and try new adventures all within a year makes me wish for more energy just to keep up with her, Linda and Ludmil's creative eyes makes me wish I had just one of theirs (I'll take blue one's please), Peg and John's knack for putting displays together makes me want to work harder at mine, Cher's fighting spirit, Laura's encouraging words and smile she always seems to have and even you lurkers on my blog inspire me to produce a better blog because if you are interested enough to stop by then I want to keep writing interesting things for you to read about. There are so many of you that truely inspire me to be a better person. If I didn't list you by no means does this mean I've excluded you. This year while I may yearn for things to be different I am ever so grateful for all I do have, especially for family.
Hopes, Dreams, Wishes, Desires, Thoughts, Inspirations, just a few words that I've been thinking of lately -- here's a few new words for you Janet to add to your list! Please tell me what the new year is meaning to you so far and maybe what some of your thoughts, hopes, dreams wishes, desires and inspirations are?
Ann Perry's talent always inspires me to Dream more.
I had to come back and add one more person that always seems to uplift me by her kind words and that's Connie of Living Beautiful. She is just so sweet with her comments and the things she writes to me. Thank you sweet Connie!!
Habakkuk 2:2-4 Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
