Start as you mean to go on

Happy New Year Everyone!

2012 was a tough year for many people on many levels - there is so much pain and sadness out there. We've been reflecting on this and it's hard to pass by the thought that it's not symptomatic of the times we live in. So much pressure, so much hurrying, so much expectation, so much guilt, sooooo busy....

This year lets change that.  Someone asked me last night what my goals/plans for 2013 are.  The answer came out almost without thinking:  Less Is More.

This year I am Slowing Down and Letting Go.

And I am starting TODAY.  Living with passion, focusing on joy, spending time with the ones I love.

LOVE - 5x7 Greeting Card

Hugging, kissing, laughing, smiling.  Being kind to others, being still, being happy.

Joy - 11x14

Trusting, hoping, believing.

  1. how lovely this post is, it make me feel quite optimistic about the new year.
    my only goal is to slow down too.
    (after we've packed our entire house up in the next ten days to move out for earthquake repairs and then hastily prepared and shopped for a new born...hmm!)
