When I look back over the first half of the year, I am delighted with how much things have changed. In particular, I am thrilled with how far I have come in embracing my creative side. I have visited more art museums in the last six months than I had in all the previous 40 years combined. I love pulling out my art supplies to do a little coloring, drawing, or crafting at random points in the day. I have committed to my dream of writing and publishing a book some day. After years of nurturing only the right side of my brain, I finally and fully have embraced my creative left side.
On Sunday, I sat down for a time of reflection and planning after attending my 19th college reunion. As I looked back over the month of May, I was able to celebrate many achievements. I also saw a few areas that needed some attention, mainly with lightening my workload and inviting more fun and spontaneity into my life. Then, I started dreaming and planning for the future.
As I wake up on the first day of a new month, I am counting my blessings:
