This year ends with a toothache and a thoughtful, good dentist; the sale of two small paintings to a new friend with amazing positive energy (and big plans & ideas); and huge appreciation and thanks for the wonderful, inspirational people surrounding me — both my beautiful daughters & husband and my sister and my close relatives and my cherished friends. I have the most amazing people around me and I am truly, honestly blessed by the universe, humbled and grateful.
As 2012 ends, I feel empowered and lucky. I have had a wonderful year. I have made some great art and have sold more paintings than ever before. In turn, this has given me the courage to continue painting in 2013, spreading my wings and refining my craft, approaching a gallery with a new theme. I have made some new friends and new contacts this year and have come to really appreciate so many talented, amazing people in my life. I have also chosen to concentrate my efforts on people that are important to me and I am much happier in having made that choice. I have helped and supported people this year, more than ever, and this has truly rejuvenated my spirit. I have also been helped and supported and this has given me the courage to continue to make great strides in my own creative endeavours. Paying it forward has paid off tenfold in so many ways.
I believe now, more than ever, that I have the power to attract good things to me by being good, by giving, by sharing and by being open to new experiences. I believe in the law of attraction and that I won’t attract what I want — but who I am. What you throw out to the universe is what is going to come back to you: no way around it. With that in mind, I look forward to a bountiful 2013, full of positive energy, big changes, new starts and tremendous amounts of creativity. I know the Year of the Snake is going to be a good one for me and I am open to all the good things the universe has in store for me and my family. This new year begins with our trip to Maui — what a perfect way to ring in a new year.
