I love the beginning of the year. A fresh start, a new beginning. I am sure we all could use a fresh start after last year. This is always the time I read Ali's blog to see what word she picked for the new year. This year her word was nuture. A good pick for her. Not for me, not really the nuturing type. I am the "hope you don't drown when I throw you in the deep end, but it'll make you tough" kinda Mom. Sorry Ali.
My word this year is positive! I struggled with this last year. I stuggle with this everyday. I will try to be positive, be kind and less harsh in 2009. Great goal for me, great goal for the Shoppe too. Our first step towards positive is the rearranging we have done. It was such a great tool for seeing what we need to focus on for our upcoming CHA show. I am POSITIVE I will have fun buying new paper! See, already working!
What word will you pick for the upcoming year? Change, grow, green? There are so many. I would love to hear your thoughts on words that inspire you, make you change your perspective, and help you be a better person.
Happy New Year. Be positive!
