Things That Make Me Happy

Just thought I would share a few pictures of the things that made me happy so far this week.

Fabric I am using to make a junk journal for a swap I am doing over at Scrapndaze

A beautiful photo my artistic child took on one of our nature walks

Embellishments...Need I say more...

My beautiful...Out of control roses

What makes you happy?

The First Step 

My word for the year is change. The first step I took this year to make changes in my life is I started reading "Simple Abundance A Daybook of Comfort and Joy"

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.
