Not because there was so much to do, I mean, there was a lot to do but a good list and keeping notes helps that process along, but becuase it changes the day to day. For mom, for me, for friends – the world looks different when a loved one passes.
The pup and I keep moving forward. God I love that furry face. She never tells my secrets. 🙂
Friends are well, and the work front likely holds 6 more years for me – I had hoped to start the full time artist gig sooner, but number crunching tells me the extra years at the county will prove their worth many times over.
Still, I look for ways to keep creating, and I am currently signing up to be considered as an artist for a contest (of sorts) that asks for 10 pieces, 90% of the materials coming from landfill (yep – the dump!) and I am super excited. More news on that should I get selected.
Already over a week into 2012, I set the following intentions:
- Identify and hold my gratitudes DAILY – hourly if it is hard
- Spend quality time with family and friends
- Assess the ways I can grow and take action
- Breath deeply
- Listen more
- Eat good food
- And always choose love, not fear
