Angel Over My Shoulder
The year has flown by so fast! Like you, I've had challenges and triumphs. Through it all, I continue to stay encouraged. When I started this blog back in January, I had all these fantasies about documenting amazing changes I was imagining. I looked forward to an incredible year of transformation in all aspects of my life. I pledged to take you on an odyssey of hope and fulfillment. But now that the year’s just about over, I realize the transformation I dream about is only getting started. So instead of drawing up a score card listing what I accomplished or did not accomplish in 2010, I’m affirming that the journey itself is the biggest blessing. I realize that living in a state of perpetual gratitude is the light and motivation that drives me. I realize being thankful is the key to my success. I realize living and breathing and moving forward with positive thoughts is a driving force that cannot be measured or gauged. One of the most affirmative outward expressions I took this year was to create a writing space in my home that honors the literary artist I know lives deep in my spiritual essence. I believe this painting of an angel, which is a treasured gift, is so appropriate in my “magic room.” She floats just over my shoulder while I’m writing, constantly reminding me of the miracle my life is. May her inspiration spread to your world too! Peace & Blessings Always.
