New Year 2012

I hope you all have a wonderful blessed New Year!

I'm looking forward to a great year. My Word for the Year is FREEDOM. I believe that God gave me this word as my focus for the next 12 months. Freedom to be do what I need to be doing; freedom to grow, mature and persevere in various problems and trials; freedom to pursue my dreams; freedom to enjoy life, family and friends; freedom to help people in whatever way I can.

Ironically, the last day of 2011 I was watching the TV series "Roots" on DVD (a Christmas gift I received that was on my wish list). It's all about Freedom.

My goal this year is be more creative. I want to write stories and create works of art. These projects have been on the back burner far too long. It's time to get cooking. But they can't happen unless I prune the dead branches in my life which are time-consuming activities that were once a joy but have now become a burden. As I type this, the pruning shears are chopping away. I feel FREE!

What are your goals for 2012?

P.S. I changed my Skating Buffalo URL. Click here.
Also Fixing Madison is back.

May you reach your goals this 2012 in a year less stressed and more blessed. My goal? Is to get some momentum going behind my Kindle books. Since all my royalties are going to the Salvation Army, they should be rooting for me, too. LOL.

May all your surprises be happy ones this year, Roland

I think it is great to find a passion and follow it. Pruning is a good idea too. My goal is to walk and exercise more and eat less.

Roland: Here's to your success as well! Wishing you all the best.

Belle: Passion and Pruning. Two words that go well together. Your goals on my list, too. Today was a pretty good day except for the chocolate attack I had this afternoon. Rats!

Happy New Year! I hope that your pruning doesn't mean we'll be seeing less of you around the Blogosphere?

Craig: Actually, the pruning does NOT involve blogging. No worries.
