Here we are at the beginning of a new year. Wow, time seems to move quickly. The start of a new year gives us the opportunity to reflect on the past year and get a peek into the future.
For the past 30 years, some of my family and like-minded friends get together on New Year’s Eve for a celebration. Ours is not the traditional celebration but a contemplative celebration. We sit around and talk about the past year; did we meet the goals we had set up for ourselves last December 31? We share our triumphs and goals not met (mine is usually not meeting my weight loss goal :-) . We do have many snacks, goodies and chocolate to help us through the process .We write down the things or goals we would like to accomplish for the New Year. We seal the goals in a envelope and someone in the group mails our envelope to us in July.
Your challenge is to look at your craft or art and ask yourself have you accomplished what you wanted to this past year. What are your goals for the next year? Is there something that you have been thinking about in your craft? A new direction perhaps? Take a leap into the New Year and give us a glimpse of where you want your art to be by the next New Year's Eve.
Happy New Year
