Five Ways To Welcome Change In The New Year

New Year Resolutions!!
Raise your hand if you've had a crazy year with lots of changes--good, bad, or otherwise. OK! Just as I thought; we're all in this together.

"Five Ways to Welcome Change in the New Year" Happy New Year!

1. Make time for change, than Jump right into it.
2. Become a grateful person for change.
3. When change is the "thing" to do, than do it.
4. Encourage someone when you feel like no one encourages you,
it has a changing effect.
5. The biggest change is to reinvent yourself nothing is predictable, easy or always peaceful, leave behind a fearful heart and ask what makes you come alive and go do it.
"Inspiring change"

To all my blogging friends who have shared another year inspiring one another in countless hours of friendship, encouragement and inspiration deeply influenced by each and everyone of you, Bonne Année (French New Year)...Good Health, Good Year!

À toi aussi mon amie...

What a lovely year it has been Doré, having learned from each other, helping one another. That is what life is TO ME. CHANGE is most definitely on the horizon, it always is. But it takes courage to go with the ebb and flow, doesn't it dearest? THANK YOU, MERCI BIEN for all of your words and advice and I wish YOU a prosperous new year!

My darling one,

I means THE WORLD TO ME that you enjoyed my post. If you are interested in a gray bird, I can look for the gray paper. Where I get my paper, there are so many fabulous colors. What a magnificent idea! And it would be lightly glittered in platinum...ahhhhhhh.....theatres, birds, what more could we ask for? The possibilities are endless. How are you? Did you have a great New Years? I have been enjoying working in my studio. So fun to be off from work and all the stress.

Sending you wishes for a creative and wonderful week. Talk soon, Anita

Cindy Adkins said...

Wishing my two beauties a Happy New Year filled with happiness!! I hope you got my email about the movie with the exact gorgeous hourglass!!!

Okay, so I have to tell you that 2011 was one crazy year--so, my hand was definitely up when you asked that question...But, now with the new books becoming bestsellers, I am totally excited and can always remember that they came out at the end of that year that was so filled with drama...Okay, I admit it, I am not sure that my life has ever been drama-free. lol

Happy Drama-Free 2012!!!!

Cindy Adkins said...

P.S. For the last week, for some reason, I keep thinking about the movie, Eat Pray Love--she found balance...and that is my word for 2012.

Elizabeth at Eiffel Tells said...
