Welcome 2015 & January IWSG

Elaine knew how to celebrate!
The animated version was hilarious,
but so distracting!
For me, the beginning of a new year is about reaching & striving, setting goals, accomplishing tasks, and continuing to seek happiness. At the close of 2014 (even though it took me the better part of the year), I sent my manuscript to my agent. A definite reason to celebrate! 

As I settle into the first few days of 2015, I'm focusing on the next 12 months. Hopes. Goals. Dreams. Personal Promises.


Hopes

My agent loves my manuscript
Edits are manageable and fun and accomplished in a timely manner
My business, Be the Tree Yoga continues to succeed
I find the time and freedom to paint

Goals

Dreams

It's quite simple (and hasn't changed much in the past few years) PUBLISH SOMETHING!!!

Personal Promises

Do things that make me happy
Make time for more yoga (just for me)
Share my heart with loved ones, friends, and those who buy my chairs (It means supporting the things I do)
Stop being hurt by those who don't buy my chairs
Love, nurture, and enjoy my family
Don't fret
Be happy
Be me
And above all...
Seek grace, not perfection

"She Sought Grace" is part of my She Heals series
