new year, new beginings

If only that were erase everything and start all over again. Every little thing, every moment in our lives makes our experiences in life. who we are, where we are headed.. 2010 was a very intense year for me, both good, amazing and.. challenging.
 I recently bought Kelly Rae's e book and she mentions about a Buddhist belief that when several things start going wrong, it's because something bigger and greater is trying to get itself born!! I started crying when I read this.. It expresses me completely! How we need to find positives when everything goes wrong. Don't take me wrong. I am a  most positive person, my friends turn to me to cheer them up, but when one bad thing happens after another.... I start thinking and questioning "what's going on here"? this can't be, how much emotional beating can a person take?  It's because something bigger is getting born, that's why, dummy! Don't you get it? Nothing is easy in life!
So this is how I will bring in the New Year.. preparing for this...birth. Allowing myself to  feel down, burnt out and depressed but only for a little bit, because it will make way for inspiration and creativity in my world!
These area few of my key words for 2011..create, soar, surprise myself, courage, follow my dream, and most of all, be happy!!
Happy New Year my friend and thank you for being there for me and for your support. It means the world to me!!


  1. I adore this painting!! It's just wonderful. I hopt your new year is filled with creative new beginnings and experiences!

  2. I am a tad burnt out and depressed too Joanna... you are not alone. 2010 was an INTENSIVE year and I for one am personally glad it is gone.. but i love the thought that something bigger is trying to be born... thank you for sharing that!


  3. ME too! SO happy that we are in a new year and have a clean slate - perhaps 2010 was just a difficult year in general (for all of us!) YEAH 2011 - and my word for the year - RELAX. Very appropriate!
    Okay, so you are such an amazing talent - I love this piece and so look forward to another year with you - thank you for sharing (and btw, ok, I will show more . .. ) xoxoxo
