Goodbye 2012!


Oh goodness. I don't think I've ever wanted a year to end like I want 2012 to...in my entire life.  The past few months have just been so trying and harsh. I've felt like a rag doll tossed around. Some words that come to mind...exhaustion, fear, loss...

But on the contrary...there are also some amazing words...like hope, kindness, friendship, support, care, community, art. 

If you are a long time follower of Everyday is a Holiday, I thank you so very much for allowing me to share a bit of my life with you. What I've come to find is that the worst thing you can feel is Alone. And seriously, I want to thank you for giving me one more place where I'll never feel that way. I'm thrilled to be a part of your day.
And If you are a newer reader I am just so happy to have made a connection. To know that something here interested you, maybe made you smile, brightened your day, and made you feel that you had a kindred spirit out there...in me.  

The first few months of 2013 will be a carry over of the Hurricane Sandy aftermath. But I choose to see through different eyes. More hope and faith and light heartedness. The opposite emotions just seem to come too easy. I've never been one to take the easy way out. And I bet the same goes for you guys. One thing that's most likely a common thread in all of us who gather here is that we have the spirit of creativity running through us. And I don't mean that you must be an artist. Creative thinking goes a long way in all facets of life. It's what you have to do when you lose something, when your back is to the wall, when it looks like there isn't an answer.
There aren't too many things that I have utter distaste for. But one thing I really really don't like are question marks. So I try to erase as many of 'em as I can. So that's definitely a big to-do for this upcoming year...Answer as many unknowns as I can.

There is lots to look forward to this year. We vow to make it a GREAT chapter in our book of life.

As for some goals...

more blogging
more personal creating 
more teaching 
more reading
more exercise
more adventures
more family time
more friend time

less worry 
less sadness
less junk food
less question marks


New Year , New You
let that be a total understatement. 

"Hey 2013 I am sooooo ready for you!!"

Wishing you all the very best this coming year!
Lots of Love!
