It is a book of daily essays that help a person find perspective in ones life and transform oneself. I found I have become less materialistic. I now have a daily gratitude journal which has shown me just how blessed I am. Pleasure is found in the simple tasks of daily living.
Today I have found I am grateful for...
1. My family
2. My morning cup of coffee
3. The sun shining
4. Good by kiss from my husband just before ventured off to work
5. Salad club at work (provides me with a healthy lunch)
Today I want to challenge everyone to find five things in your day that you are grateful for.
This is my word of the year...Yes, it's change. The way I see it change is good. I am going to change things about myself and my life.
At first I thought of making a New Years Resolution list. It would include..Trying new things, taking better care of my body, showing my loved ones just how much I love them (making more time for them), Pay off my debt, Use up my art supplies and many more. Than, I thought....all of these things can be done with CHANGE...
The first thing on my list is to get organized. This is a big change for me. I look organized but the OCD in my says I am not. Each week I am going to tackle a room. By the end of January I should know what is hidden in every nook and cranny in my home. This is a change. Maybe you can join me. We can CHANGE together.
I was cleaning my room the other day and I came across a lost treasure.
Many years ago I had a victorian holiday tree. For a gift my aunt made me this ornament.
She also made this beautiful lace trim to adorn my tree. I have since gone country. These were still in the original box I rec'd them in. I called her and asked her permission to use them in my art. She has given her blessing. Now I need to figure out what I am going to do with them. Any ideas?
