As we begin the new year, like many others we are excited about what the year holds for our life, our business, our family and all our hopes and dreams. In the next breath if we are sincerely walking our talk and living in the now, relishing the moment,and taking baby steps through the doors to our dreams, we don’t really need to focus greatly on all the plans, all the carefully laid out goals for the New Year. In the past I have been a person who prepares pages and pages of notes, times, dates, and projections so that all our goals can be met. We have always had a New Years Eve dinner with one another going over all the accomplishments of the past year and all the things that did not work so well. We make plans for the coming year, new shows to attend, new items to add to our product line, how to make the most of our space in a booth, we plan, we plot, we analyze. WE make drawings, we are so very, very detailed.This year as the new year approached, Ludmil and I were driving to see our family in AR. and I said “what if we dispensed with our New Years ritual of reviewing and remaking our goals? “We have a full file of 15yrs worth of notes from thees New Years Eve planning secessions, it has been serious work.. Needless to say Ludmil looked at me as though I was saying lets start eating grasshoppers this coming year!
With a new commitment to live our dreams,and we are this very moment in time, we simply laid aside all those the papers, all the discussion, and enjoyed a very sweet peaceful dinner with one another, went to bed early, to wake to another beautiful balmy winter day in Texas.
Today I plan on posting our show calender, and that’s all the planning I am doing this year, the rest of the time will be spent relishing the moment, and thanking the Universe for the continued beautiful life that I share with my husband, family and friends.If you are reading this, you are one of those people,Thank you for checking in.
