Happy New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Celebration in whatever way you have chosen to celebrate. I think 2008 is going to a fantastic year. I am looking forward to growth as an artist, travel to new places and many wonderful new experiences.

I drew this little lady last night. I ended up cutting her out and put her into a collage. I am participating in Creative Every Day Click on the link to find out more or sign up yourself. You can be creative in all sorts of different ways. Of course I will be focusing on Art but some days it may be something else entirely. Why don't you join me in this great challenge.

Its the new year so of course I have all these new ideas and plans. I was intrigued by Cristine Kane's idea of choosing a word to focus on for the year. I have decided to do this and I have chosen the word happiness. My focus will be to try and be a happier person no matter what it is going through. I hope that at least part of the day I will chose to be happy about something.

The other thing I am doing is the book Soul Coaching, by Denise Linn. Its a 28 day program that is a very practical guide to doing a comprehensive makeover on your life and living from a more soul centered perspective. You do different things every day. Today one of the things was about making commitments to yourself and keeping them. I have decided to commit to meditating 15 minutes a day, every day of the week. This is something that I have done sporadically for the past ten years. I know I feel better doing it and I just want to be more consistent in my practice. I think that doing this book is going to be quite the experience.
