This morning when I awoke, I felt such anticipation for the coming year. I realized that for the first time that I can remember, I feel ahead of my goals and desires for the new year. With so many changes last year for me, with my weight loss, finding an incredible massage therapist (she is so much more than that), artistic growth....I don't have any resolutions this year. What a wonderful feeling! My goals are to just continue working with and growing from what I accomplished last year.

My massage therapist does energy and healing work - it's been life changing for me. It's opened me to see myself more fully and helped me to let go of so many things that were holding me back. Besides giving me so much pain relief....I feel so fortunate to have found her, through my good friend, Nan.

I've written down my goals and I'm printing them out where I can see them daily.....I'm learning to say no to things will hinder my intentions. It's really difficult at first, but in the end, so liberating.

This is a painting I just finished....combining what I've been learning and helping me to develop my's a work in progress, but I'm very pleased with it.

Happy New Year.....may it be all that you wished for. xo
