New Year's Resolutions

The clock's a tickin' and in a few hours we will have our feet planted in a New Year.

Did you finish your New Year's Resolution List, or are you still scribbling?
I bet several of our lists have similar items on them.   
1.  Lose weight.
2.  Kick bad habit.
3.  Fix relationship.
4.  Make more money.
5.  Get better job.

Notice how we are always standing with our hands in our sides looking at what we 'don't have'?  Doesn't feel too good, does it?

I love this quote by Thomas Merton
 “We have what we seek, it is there all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known to us.”

Every year we live brings unforseen journeys, but every year we achieve things too. Some of the things we achieve we never even had on that list.  We should not forget to stop and congratulate ourselves for what we have already accomplished. 

Close your eyes and imagine that you are standing 365 days into the future.  Look at everything you ticked off your list during 2014.  Doesn't that bring a warm feeling to your heart?  Sure feels good to have reached your goals. 

This is a fact.  Tomorrow is the first of 365 days.   If you start working tomorrow with a positive attitude towards your goals, it is possible that you will be standing in future where you imagine right now you are. 

Let 2014 be the year you let your positive attitude pull you towards your goals!


  1. Happy New Year Megan, may it turn out to be a really good year for you!

  2. Very well said Megan. Happy New Year to you.
    I have purchased a few of your patterns and find them very clear and easy to follow and the prices are so low. I only found your blog recently and will be eagerly following it, especially to make Angus and his clothes. Many, many thanks, Megan.

  3. Thank you for your comments, Willow. I'm glad you like my Etsy shop! Some of my patterns have been around for such a long time that I feel they have earned their keep, I am offering those at low prices. The newer patterns have lots more photos and illustrations, as I'm sure you have discovered. I'm looking forward to sharing Angus with you. Starting with the lessons in a week or so :-)
