I have never been one for new year's resolutions as that has always  seemed like  putting too much guilt on one's self, causing the first falter to cancel out the whole unrealistic idea.  On the other hand with my shop closing this summer, I have had some time to reflect on where I'm at..  as well as the not so celebrated anymore.. birthday  just around the corner.   I find I have time to actually think and ponder without being rushed by some deadline or imminent requirement .. which has actually been somewhat of a challenge.  Life has always been full and   began  early with  full time work at the age of 18.. and  there has been a lot of life in between.  From wife, to mother, to part time employee, to being relocated 3 times and raising 2 boys and an early farewell to another, as well as other dear family members and friends, to the fulfillment of owning a small shop and promoter of  my hobby and passion VINTAGE WITH FLAIR.    I feel my life has and is lived with passion and with purpose with  each chapter having its share of tears and laughter,  challenges and joys, hard work and great reward. I have been blessed with a life mate who has been both supportive and continues to work shoulder to shoulder in helping achieve both mine  and our  purpose.  So rather than a resolution..   I resolve; which I presently acknowledge, requires to not always understand the whys, or how to's, but I am determined to continue to work on being the best  of what I desire to be..  a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, a daughter a promoter of finding  purpose in the discarded,   to look  for and create beauty, all in the hopes of  inspiring others to look and  find it too!!
