[ GOOD EVENING, 2009 ]

As this long, crazy, stressful, and pretty dark year draws to a close, I'm feeling hopeful for a better one to come. I've learned so much this year, and 2010 will definitely benefit from these new realizations and skills. It's only upwards from here!

grr-ATTITUDE = an aggressively grateful attitude

eh? eh? Anyways...

I've learned that I can take control of my life, my thoughts, my "problem brain." I will focus on my goals and in the process draw good things my way. I can and will practice self-love, assertiveness skills, and mindfulness. I know I will succeed as long as I never give up.

Though I've only been blogging for a few months, I'm loving it and excited for what's to come. I'm grateful for every single comment and page view; new followers bring such a thrill! I hope to improve my sewing skills this year and get on track with building a sustainable career.

Wishing everyone a safe, sound, and champagne-filled New Year's!

Don't let anyone dim your shine!
