Approaching the New Year with Hope and a Clean Slate

I hope everyone enjoyed this holiday season and are looking forward to the promise of a new year with hope and the opportunity to start fresh with a clean slate.

Do you have any new years resolutions made yet? Are they realistic or idealistic? I know I usually start off with the best of intentions in making and keeping my resolutions; but pretty quickly they fall by the wayside of impossible to maintain. I've found in post new year's resolution autopsies that I over committed myself to idealistic change rather than taking a more kind to self approach with personally manageable and nurturing change.

Therefore, I intend to approach the new year a bit differently this year with resolutions that make me happy rather than make me thin or fit. I will not diet, but I will be "a bit more" conscientious in determining what I eat on a consistent basis. I will not go to the gym (unless I really want to with a friend), but I will find ways to stay fit while going about my daily life, even if means parking further away when running errands or taking the stairs when ever possible.
Most importantly though for my mental health and well being, I resolve this year of 2008 to do more of what nurtures my soul by finding more time to paint. Check out my online gallery website at to follow my resolution of creating more artwork in 2008!

May we all have the best of new years ever in 2008 as we find the time to do what nurtures our souls!

Artfully yours,
