Moving into the new year. A time of reflection and gratitude.

As we move into the new year I find myself thinking about the past year. Was it what I thought it would be? How am I feeling about my accomplishments? Did I spend as much time with my friends and family as I had hoped? Is everyone well? Is the store still a source of joy?

I never use the answers to beat myself up, rather an instrument of guidance for the next 365 days. The answers to these basic questions allow me to alter my course a bit to live a fuller and happier life. That is always my goal.

There have been a lot of changes the last year. I have more than enough garden area now and it brings me joy. The store has changed into a true reflection of who I am and is bringing me joy. I have started painting and being creative and that is bringing me joy. I have spent a lot of time with my family and that brings me joy. My brother and I have really connected through our mutual love of gardening. That brings me joy. My sister as always brings me joy. I am happy and content. That sounds like a year well spent. I have a feeling that this is going to be a great year. One I will always remember. So here is to 2016. Cheers.
