Auld Lang Syne


We always hear this song on New Years so if you are wondering why, or where it came from, check it out here.  I am one who really tries hard to not wish away time, even on days when I think 4:30 may never arrive.  Ringing in the new year is always an exciting time, we can look back at what we have accomplished, what we wanted to do and didn't, and generally it's the latter we regret.  This is going to be a great year, regardless of the challenges that arise.  If we take things one day at a time, look for the upside in situations, and breathe, we can all face and conquer whatever life puts in front of us.  Life is a "no peek" journey, if we knew what tomorrow would bring, we might not be able to get through today! 
So go enjoy your day, enjoy every day.  Take a chance, take a trip, start a new project.  I remember someone telling me "The pessimist might be proven right in the end, but the optimist will have a better time getting there!" Choose to have the better time!
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of blogland and leaving comments, I appreciate it.
Happy New Year
Sharon

So true, so true. If we would all just slow down and actually relish each moment, how much sweeter our lives would all be. It is so hard to put in practice sometimes, though. I am sure gonna try harder to do so in 2010.

Happy new year, Sharon. I hope each moment of 2010 brings you great adventure & experiences to fill your life with zest!

Hi, Sharon! I need to copy your sentiment about optimists and pessimists and post it where I can see it everyday, as I tend to fall into the latter category, unfortunately . . . Actually, I think I'm going to use it as the inspiration for my next piece ala Galloping Pony style. This was a vendor Teri and I discovered at NW Quilt Expo -- she combines miniature quilts with antique collage items and has become my new idol :) If you get a chance, check out her blog. Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR -- I wish you all the best and with lots of quilting time!!!!!

I believe in optimism too. It is so much more fun being around people who have the brighter outlook on life.
