I don't really believe in New Year's resolutions. I figure, "Why wait for Jan 1st to start?" Instead I have a mantra for 2009: Just One More. Just One More: smile to a stranger, step taken, laugh, good deed done, 1/4 mile on the treadmill, thought before I take that next bite/buy that unneccessary item, cuddle with our dog, kiss for my husband, carrot, minute of silence, push up, call to a friend, mess cleaned up, piece of fabric cut/sewn, etc. I play it in my mind throughout each day - it pushes me when I want to quit, keeps me in a positive moment, wards off negative thoughts and helps me focus.
This year I will continue to sew more (including trying new techniques) and detox my mind, body, soul, physical environment (clutter) etc.
Jacquie and so very many others have inspired me to get back to sewing/quilting, do some swapping, try new textiles, oh the ideas are endless. My hope is that maybe you will find a small bit of inspiration here.
