Looking Forward to 2013...

So 2012 is almost over. It has been an extremely busy year for me! There have been some ups and downs, but I want to focus on the positive.  Hoping for the power of positive thinking to work for me during 2013.  One major change for me during 2012 was my decision to retire from teaching after 29 years and start working on my art full time! That was a very hard decision for me, but it was a very much needed change. (I just hope that our politicians don't throw us off that "fiscal cliff" that they keep warning us about.  Its very difficult to be self employed when the economy is in free fall.  ...oops...I'm not supposed to dwell on the negative...) This year I was very busy with commissions, so I have been very blessed to have a good year for the first 6 months of being 'self employed'.Personally, I have had some challenges, but nothing compared to what many people have gone through.  So, I'm optimistic that this year will be even better!  I have to have faith that it will, and if that means I need to make more changes, then I will. Sometimes change is what it takes to move forward.  So, here's to the New Year and better times for us and our country.
