***Written last week, to post for the end of the year! Hoping you all have a great and safe New Year! Hugs! -c
Most of us, (myself included), like to think of Spring as a new beginning. Eggs and nests. The time where the frozen ground warms up and all things become possible.
As I snapped away, here and there, I began thinking of New Year's, my goals, my aspirations, yes, even my resolutions. I didn't make any resolutions at the end of 2009 and it felt very "freeing".
And yet, I'm pretty happy with some of the things that I've accomplished this year. One of them being a significant weight lose. Another, two successful Paper Cowgirl Retreats. Another year of wedded bliss with Sweet Hub. And lest you think that I've succeeded at all I've endeavored, well....no. I have not.
My friend Linda had this message on her FB page this morning, and I thought it was perfect for thoughts of new beginnings, "Mistakes don't define you. They don't dictate where you are heading, they only remind you of where you have been".
I have made my share of mistakes this year. There were some things I left undone, some things I could not repair, some things I could not accomplish. But I'm glad that those mistakes don't define me. I'm glad that they can only remind me of where I've been. And that they can point me in the right direction for this new year. Hopefully, to new beginnings.
