The New Year

Around December 31st, I tend to reflect on the outgoing year. I think about the world on a global level, then pare down to my corner of the world...the good, the bad, the not so pretty, the beautiful and tenderness that life has to give. And I always always say goodbye to the "former" year on New Year's Eve. It's my way of closure.
Now-New Year's Resolutions...mmmm not so much. I find that when I make a resolution, and then don't follow through with it, a negative thought pops into my head, and I don't want negative thoughts popping into my head. I just continue with my bucket or scratch off list, whatever people like to call it, and keep moving on in a positive direction.

So, with that written, I wish all of you a very Happy and Bright New Year!


  1. Momentum in a positive direction is the only way we roll around here.
    Negativity can not only drag you down but pull you backwards.
    Onward and upwards, tally ho.

  2. Lovely thoughts. New Year's Resolutions have never been a tradition for me either. Every day is a new opportunity to try to meet my goals. I agree that looking back is something I like to avoid.

  3. I'm right there with you Kathleen...moving forward is the best way! Hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. I spent many hours yesterday looking through old pictures for ones to frame. I love the memories picture spark. Great old pictures you look at daily love your parents wedding shot just beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. That's the right attitude if there ever was one Kathleen! Wishing you all the best with your continued 'scratching'...and also, a very Happy & BLessed New Year!!!
