Simple common sense...
Ten minutes of doing is worth ten hours of talking about it.
2012 for me seemed to be a year of waiting.
Anticipation of what will happen next...
wanting to take some action but feeling so ineffectual... afraid... tired...
discouraged by life's twists and turns.
We sometimes allow ourselves to get so caught up in negativity
we fail to do the very things that could change our course.
Looking back, the year was mostly lovely.
A warm and loving family in our cozy home celebrating everyday living.
Friends old and new...Business ventures...Just plain adventures...
Somehow I got sidetracked. Setbacks seemed larger than the rest of life.
One step forward, three steps back, but mostly not taking any steps at all.
2013 will be a year of change here at Frippery Farmhouse.
Change is obviously inevitable.
We just need to react to change by making it work in the best possible way.
Take some action to make that change positive.
Stop talking and mulling and waiting.
My philosophy in 2013 is to take the time given to me and act on it.
No more wasting life being afraid of things out of my control
Take an idea and run with it.
Do what needs to be done and accept the outcome.
10 minutes at a time can add up to a lot of change.
Yours in action, P.
