I've been thinking about the new year, resolutions, and the pros and cons of making them. Usually, I recommend against resolutions, but advocate for plans. Some combination of both is probably the best.
Year before last I attended the Knitter's Review Retreat in Western Massachusetts. This year, there was a timing conflict with a long-anticipated trip to EASTERN Massachusetts to visit DS and DD. But after we returned home, I got the letter that Clara had invited all the KRR participants to write to themselves for "next year."
When I read that letter, I realized that my "wish for myself" was almost entirely fulfilled.
I took control of my health and weight.
I enriched my relationship with my husband, DD and DS and their significant others.
I expanded my artistic/creative/expressive pursuits.
And I was pleased.
My inner self is blossoming. Again.
To all who have encouraged, nudged and responded here (and elsewhere)..
you know who you are!
