To reflect or not to reflect…

As the year ends, tradition dictates we all reflect on the past year. I really don’t feel like it. My wonderful job as an Influencer ended, my marriage is failing, a friend committed suicide. Somehow I look back on the end of the year and still don’t know where my future is, so I really don’t want to keep reflecting on the past year and the way it’s ending. Instead, I bolster my spirits finding new sayings to pin on Pinterest onto my Words of Wisdom¬†board¬†that encourage me to go forth boldly into the great unknown of a new year. Does anyone else do that? I’m sure I’m not the only one who pins things to encourage myself, whether it’s sayings or food I think I’m going to make, projects I think I’m going to do, things that make me laugh, things I want, places I want to go… That’s the draw of Pinterest. An online pin board to pin all of our hopes, ideas and dreams on. Because in the end, our hopes & dreams are what keep us going. For me, I’m ready to throw 2015 into the trash and step forth into the new year and whatever it has to offer me!
