this year, my tree didn't stay decorated.
My little E and J spent weeks deconstructing the decorated tree
breaking ornaments, losing pieces, and adding their own
taking it down today made me think...
about new starts, decisions, and the future.
I've been hanging on to the past, using the same ornaments every year, even though I've changed.
losing control helped me let go
of things I didn't love
but thought I had to hold on to
and decide which things I really love: it forced me to choose
today, I kept what I really love, threw out what was tired, and created a new start.
I bought this lovely a few years ago, after Christmas sale at Joann's. She still makes my heart sing :)
I wasn't going to do any resolutions, but taking down the tree got me thinking.
In 2012 I will...
rock the boat
have a voice
CHANGE THE WORLD
