Dear friends, I have been away for some time but I am back! Yippie! And... I'd like to wish you a Happy 2011, may this New Year bring you opportunities, happiness, inspiration, creativity and much success!
R-E-S-O-L-U-T-I-O-N-S you ask? ...hmm, I don't really make resolutions anymore but here is my little black & white sketch for this weeks topic IF "Resolutions". I just grew tired of setting myself up for failure – making and breaking resolutions has it limits. I do however, understand the significance of a New Year. A time of reflection, of making choices to help ourselves become better people and I like the concept of "a new beginning". But as far as resolutions? eh, I prefer to refine my goals instead. (Wait, are resolutions and goals the same thing? I wonder.) I do however, always have a long list of goals that follow me all year long, if not longer, but this year I'd like to try something new. Instead of filling my head with so much, I'd like to let go and relax. Stop trying so hard, stop manipulating things, struggling to do so much and instead have an experience of just being for a while. Letting go and just being in the now has always been a struggle for me, shutting off my mind is difficult but I think the book I'm reading, Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain will help me, its a great book! All in all, my goal is to find inner peace and continue doing what I love, while sharing it here with you.
Thank you so much for all your support, your comments and friendships, they mean so much to me. These friendships are a treasured source of inspiration to me, I am truly grateful to be a part of this wonderful online community and I look forward to what lies ahead in 2011!
What are your resolutions,
your intentions, your goals for 2011?
