As we continue the journey into our new year together, I have some questions for you to ponder…
What motivates you to grow, explore and increase enjoyment in your life? After all we are just given one life here on earth so we should all be mindful to make it the best life possible! Where do you get your creative inspiration? Does your life ever feel overwhelming? I want you all to realize two things this year when you feel blue….be kind to yourself and remember that the universe has an amazing way to make all things “right” even if you cannot see the outcome immediately!! I have been so very blessed to have the life I’ve been given…however, it has come at a price.
“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” Andy Rooney
One thing I have promised myself to do this year is set aside 10 minutes a day for “personal” creative exploration. Not related to my company. I challenge all of my wonderful followers to do the same…explore beyond your normal daily routine or hobby…open your mind to the creative spirit and a wonderful journey will unfold! Take time to look at the beauty of things around you. Enjoy your friends and family and weave those experiences into your life through your art! Use your art as the vehicle of your expression. Spellbinders has a new blog for all to enjoy called Explore Beyond…it will be loaded with all sorts of inspiration for your enjoyment…I urge you to check it out as we continue to add and grow this new endeavor. There will be features allowing all of us to participate in this area together. How exciting to get the opportunity to grow and explore with all of you!
A few things I have done since the New Year is enjoy some masterpiece theater. Downton Abbey is my new obsession! LOL…my sister Cindy came back to Arizona with us after CHA and we decided to explore some great television series that we have missed since growing this company. So…we wandered into Barnes and Noble’s movie/television section and found that great British section of movies/television shows.
Needless to say, we have made several trips back to get the entire series!!! It’s been a fun two weeks with my sister! The other great thing I've done this New Year is go to girls night out on Wednesdays!! Connecting with girlfriends is a great way to de-stress, laugh and keep things in perspective!
So do yourself a big favor and call up a few friends and start your own Girl’s/Guy's Night out!! You will not regret it!!
