My First Post of the Year - 2014

I cannot believe it is 2014... this year I will celebrate my 52nd birthday I really never thought that I would live this long (see this Post for why) 
But I AM here and doing better than I ever thought I would or could and Loving my life... 

And like many other people I like to spend a bit of time reflecting on the past year and looking over the next few months of this new year to see where I am at and if I am still heading in the same direction and more importantly ... if I still WANT to be heading in the direction that I am going!  
For me 2013 has been a year of personal challenges and physical obstacles on many different levels of my life but these challenges have caused me to re-evaluate what I thought I wanted in my life, to establish where I am heading right now and to make me really think about what I want to do with my future - always uncomfortable but never a waste of time. 
I have come to realize that I LIKE who I am and how I am and how I live my life... but that there is always room for improvement and I will continue to make those adjustments as required... 

I have also realized this year that I can embrace my inner beauty and allow myself to feel pretty every single day no matter what the outside cover is looking like... 

I realized that I LOVE to Laugh and I missed doing that for a while this year... but I am doing it again

I also realized that I really do still LIKE people - in general and in specific - but that in future I will be more selective about who I "let in" to my heart and soul...
But the biggest thing for me this year was realizing that HOME is not a place but is a feeling I hold in my heart; a feeling that is tied to the people I love the most in this world and that I am ready to move on... 

2013 was also the year I unchained my inner artist from the basement of my soul, allowing her to fly free... and WHAT a journey that has! 

But I realized that I MISS scrapbooking and that although I am loving my Art Journey... I need to make sure that I scrapbook more this year - and you will get to see all of it as I just have to share with you...
So thank you for sharing my 2013 with me and Happy 2014 everyone... I hope you keep coming back to check in on me as I continue to travel (and share) my journey....
Happy Days.... Smile
