One of my sisters (Mary) sent me a wonderful blog post from Kathy Quilts in which Kathy reflected on her accomplishments in 2015 rather than focus on what she wants to tackle in 2016. I love the idea of focusing on what one has accomplished. Especially when we tend to resolve to accomplish way more than what is really possible. When one comes up with a lengthy list of resolutions, one is bound to fall short of these expectations. Mainly because life happens and we can not pre-plan for everything that is going to occur on our life's journey.
I haven't done the best job this year when it comes to recording my creative accomplishments, so I won't be following Kathy's lead as far as reflecting on my accomplishments for 2015. But I think I would like to do that for Jan. 1, 2017. So rather than have resolutions or reflections for 2016, I have decided to focus on a phrase this year.......Keep it simple and smile.
Now how can I fall short of my goals if I just "Keep it simple and smile". And in doing so, maybe I'll be able to put a smile on your face too.
Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2016....until we meet again,
