Last year, I decided upon a phrase to guide me for 2015. I really can't top it! No need to even try!!!
2015's phrase was "Count Your Blessings." In light of what I had learned the previous year, I decided to focus on the positives in my life.
It was truly a great phrase, and I reminded myself daily of that this past year. It will be a mantra for life not just 2015.
So here it is time for 2016, and I have been soul searching for something as spectacular.
I have a phrase this year, but it is not so earth shattering. My phrase for this year will be...
JUST DO IT.
Are you thinking Nike swoosh?
Yea, me too.
I procrastinate by nature. When I was younger, I would often wait to the last minute to get down and dirty on a project. I spent lots of time thinking about it, but not really breaking it down and doing things all along. I still do that maybe not to the extent of my youth, but waiting until it is a mountain or until everything is just so so to start. This year I am going to try and quit the game waiting until things are just so so to get started. I am hoping to get more accomplished by breaking things into smaller chunks and using whatever time I have to get something done.
I have put off learning to smock because I don't have time, but I am going to start with small steps.
Watch some videos to start.
Just break it down to steps.
Maybe just getting my materials for it together one day,
then trying a few stitches.
I did see that work a bit this year with getting my house back in order. It was the baby steps that took place over months that made the difference.
So, for 2016, I will continue to count my blessings, but I will take those things on my list and ...
Just do it or at least do something!
