2012 has now come to a close and 2013 is open to new adventures, I am going to learn to say Yes more often. This is my word for 2013. Saying no places a roadblock to growth, saying yes is an invitation to at least try.
- Yes! for eating healthier and staying away from sweets (well not all sweets, but less)
- Yes! to education, either on-line or a physical campus
- Yes! to contacting old friends that I haven't seen in awhile
- Yes! to exercising (oh good Lord, I have to, even taking a walk is better than nothing)
- Yes! to continuing my photography growth
- Yes! to a 365
- Yes! to a trip abroad (I am bound and determined to get across that big pond and visit a foreign country)
- Yes! to organization (No details here, the list is far too long)
- Yes! to walking in the Alzheimer's Walk and raising as much money as I can for continued research to conquer this horrible disease.
- Yes! to saying yes to opportunities that may come my way.
- Yes! to volunteering, it does wonders for my heart & soul.
- Yes! to praying more and worrying less.
I did take a walk (one of the "yes's" on my list) this afternoon with Toby by my side and camera in hand. The sun was shining and very little wind but the temps were cold and still no snow (drats!). After the two of us wandered for awhile, me taking pictures and Toby exploring I looked at Toby and realized he had picked up a burr on his little face and had tangled itself so tight that it had totally covered his eye. With that, we came home to remove the nasty burr. No pulling would loosen it, so I had to retrieve the scissors and cut. Thank goodness, Toby is a good & patient dog. After several snips, the burr was finally gone, albeit a lot less facial
Day #1 of my 365....
Enjoying the walk before the burr....
And last, thank you, thank you, thank you....for being a part of my little piece of blog land. I so appreciate your visits, your comments....you keep me going and inspired. Thank you for a wonderful 2012 and I so look forward to a brilliant 2013.
