Morning Everyone!

When it gets to this time of the year I do my 'evaluation' thing of the past months and what my goals are for the following year. it started out as writing a list of the things that had happened that I was either proud of or happy about, or getting to tick off something on the  'things I must do in my life time' list. It's mainly a reflection on what has happened, how far I've come and what I still want to accomplish. It helped me to gain perspective especially when I was deep in depression, just being thankful I'd made it through one more year was something to be grateful for.

So  I was hoping to share my reflections with everyone here please feel free to add your answers to these questions!

A) What 3 things did you do this year that you're proud of, or happy about, or  something you really needed to do to take care of yourself?

1. I stuck by a friend even when things were extremely difficult and the rest of my friends thought I was being crazy. (everything worked out fine in the end... )
2. I grew some more of a back bone 
3. I picked up 3kg's. (I know this sounds mad! Honestly I've been very thin most of my life and really wanted just a pound or two to look healthier. With all the stress with taking care of ma I could never even hold onto an extra 1kg) These days I often get told I'm looking much better with the little bit of extra padding - and I'm actually looking forward to updating the wardrobe with jeans and skirts that fit better - yeah okay, I'm not normal!

Last question:
B) What are you looking forward to next year?

Several things in fact, there are plans to go to Scotland in June or July, I'm hoping to change jobs and maybe join a company that is more stable, and lastly I'm just looking forward to a brand new year and everything that may come with it. New experiences, new friendships, learning new things.

Looking forward to the responses!

Hugs A

May the best ye've ever seen, Be the warst ye'll ever see. May the moose ne'er lea' yer aumrie Wi' a tear-drap in his e'e. May ye aye keep hail an' hertie,Till ye're auld eneuch tae dee. May ye aye be jist as happy, As we wiss ye noo tae be.

May the best you've ever seen, Be the worst you'll ever see. May the mouse never leave your pantry With a tear-drop in his eye. May you always keep healthy and hearty Until you're old enough to die. May you always be just as happy As we wish you now to be.)

Hola Asiza.. great post and wonderful thoughts

I find that on a daily basis when I meditate that I give thanks and reflect all the good that comes into my life. I also look at the things that don't seem right and begin to understand that it is all good and perfect... it may not always unfold as I think it should but it is usually better when I let go of the need to control and get out of my own way

I started really caring well for myself... somehow lost it midst the stress of launching the new business and the art... so I do want to get back into a deeper form of healing for myself.

My goals turned all topsy turvey when the Universe brought Crystal Illumination into my life. I originally moved here to take 4-6 months and travel to different countries like Japan, Italy and Morocco to do artist in residence programs , meeting international artists and traveling as well. Now, with CIA behind me, I have no idea where it will lead me to... I have surrendered totally trusting that I am guided. My sense is that besides selling my product I will also be doing private installations that hopefully will lead to gallery shows both here and in the states... private special events and more... I haven't really set down and set a list of specific goals.  I feel that it will reveal itself to me in due time.

Also working a little more behind the scenes for Empowering Caregivers to grow it again... we shall see

Happy Holidays and a New Year filled with all you dare to dream.

2 Life


Hello...I suppose I have learned to eliminate the negatives from my life and just recently had to let go of a long time friend who decided I wasn't important to her any more. It was a litle stressful while going through the final stages of ending the relationship, but feel much better and relieved that the struggle (on my end) is now in the past. I am getting closer to dealing with my sister's death and am ready to bounce back in to life, I know she is watching me. I look forward to saving and going on that long over due vacation (been about 6 years).... I've found an old gf from jr. high and we are now back in regualer contact after 51 years!! Life can certainly throw us a curve or two and sometimes close together, but I know it is best to beat those challenges one by one and forge ahead with positive thinking. We only have "one live to live".
