Finishing Up and Looking Forward

Good morning, Friends!

I hope each of you had a blessed Christmas, spent with those you love!  We had a grand time here at our house....lots of family time, lots of good food and some pretty serious naps!

Now that it is past, I am itching to get in there and start dismantling all the decorations, though.  It's always this way.  I love putting it all out, but when it's over, I'm ready to tear it all down and get the house back in order! The living room always seems to feel somehow larger once the tree is out.  Even though I didn't put as much out this year, it is feeling a bit cluttered now that we are past the 25th.....

How about you?  Are you ready to take it all down and start the new year off clean and fresh?  It's much like that in our lives, too.  Paring down, cleaning up, getting ready for the next chapter.  It is somehow invigorating and exciting! 

I am looking forward to 2012 and all the possibilities it holds!!!  This week between Christmas and New Year's Day, I am working on my list of goals for the upcoming year.  Goal setting is critical when you have your own business and I am still learning how to do it effectively.  In addition to business goals, there are personal goals to be set.  I'm avoiding making any "resolutions" - it seems they so often fall by the wayside by about mid-January.  Instead, I want to set realistic, measurable and achievable goals - with a definite, yet flexible, plan to meet them.  Sounds like an impossible project, doesn't it?  But, without some sort of road map for the year, I am afraid I will veer off course and end up in Podunk, Nowhere!!!  And, so I must focus my attention on sketching out the map for this year. 

What goals are you setting for yourself this year?  Feel free to share them in your comments.  Perhaps, with a little encouragement from each other, we can make them a reality!

After several gray days of frigid temperatures, along with a bit of ice and a flurry or two of snow, the sun shone brilliantly on New Year&...
