I really challenged myself this year when I chose my Annual Word - Courage. Next year, I think I'm gonna go for something a little easier, like "sloth" (kidding. sort of). My word has shown up in my life in various ways, as I've found they usually do. However, when I chose that word I had something specific in mind and I've been dancing around it like a prima ballerina until last week. I would very much like to develop and grow a profitable business with my photography. There, I said it. That was going to take a lot of courage and it's taken me nearly an entire year to finally take a bold step and actually approach strangers with a proposal. At the risk of jinxing things - I had a very positive meeting this morning and, if everything continues to go well, my line of greeting cards will be offered for sale through the regional hospital gift shop. The real victory, of course, was in stepping outside my comfort zone - Waaay outside - by risking and having faith in myself and my product. I expect to hear from them in the next day or two, after they consult with another team member who was unable to attend this morning's meeting. I'm optimistic and excited about the opportunities this may open up for me. This is how the empire is built, my friends, one little brick at a time. Thank you, as always for all your words of encouragement and support along this journey.

I'm a Superficial Dabbler - I know a little bit about a lot of things and I'm an expert at none of them. I’m a city girl with a country soul, a curious nature, and a very short attention span. I believe that animals are angels wrapped in fur, come down from heaven to model unconditional love.
I have decided not to display the awards that I receive. If you like my blog, leave me a comment. I read and appreciate them all. It's the connection with the friends I make here that I treasure the most.
