Another Year Over….

and a New One about to begin…sigh…

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and got spoilt by that jolly old man in his red suit…I sure did.  As one year draws to a close and the next one comes in, it is a time of great reflection in our lives.  Have we achieved what we set out at the beginning of the year to do?  Did our resolutions last longer than a week LOL   This has happened to me before *rolling eyes*.

I have been thinking about this  a lot lately and I expressed this same thing in Elite Stampers forum today.  We really should celebrate everyday that we are still here and able to experience life…waking up in the morning is something we take for granted…it often takes major illness or death of someone we love or whom is really young to wake us up to this fact. 

I have decided to express my gratitude for the “little” things in life more this next year and it is time I actually made my gratitude album…which will be a work in progress over the whole of 2009. 

I think I also need to be kinder to myself…I tend to think I should be able to do the impossible…I don’t expect this of anyone else, so why should I have to live up this standard? 

That and getting off my butt and getting more fit/healthy…ok….guess this has just become a New Year’s resolution.  What is on your list of things to achieve next year?

Ok, will be back tomorrow as I am heading off to work now.

Keep Smiling and Stamping,
