Resolved Gratefully

Wherein I resolve not to make resolutions!
Instead of making a list of things I resolve to do in the Newness of this New Year (seriously who keeps them anyway right!) I'm making a list of things I'm grateful for in this life of mine that I am privileged to share with you birdlings!
I am eternally grateful for:
1. Being able to work from home & be here to pick up Tyler from school...
2. The ability to do what I love as a career...
3. Forgiveness...
4. My health...
5. My family & friends who love me & support me always no matter what...
6. Change...
7. Faith instilled as a child...
8. Flea market treasures :)
9. Connections...
10. Bird songs...
11. Grace...

...Let's not rush out the old with the new but revamp the old to mingle with the new for a better than ever New Year filled with Bountiful Blessings!

& as for those resolutions I did read a helpful article in Lucky about breaking bad habits: To quit a bad habit be absolutely sure of your decision. As in no cheating, no crutches (patches, gum or rewards). Substitutes are a reminder, don't count days or anniversaries, don't make connections between you & the problem.

...after I read this I realized that is what I did to quit smoking this past year (yes, I'm still smoke free! yippee!) & it is probably the reason that I have lasted this long! ...My 2 cents, & I'm off the podium :)

The Happiest of New Years To You!

Psst... the sale is still going on over in the shop!
