Sometimes you can find a new journey on an old path.
A new year doesn’t have to mean that everything will be new for you. Something good from last year or other years might find it’s way into this one.
You know how we often list off all the crap that happened last year. Debts. Sickness. Accidents and we say good riddance!.
Let’s not throw out Father Time with the bath water…er, or something like that. Father Time has a few good things to give Baby New Year.
Yeah, I know, it’s a little late in the month to be writing about New Years maybe. Looking ahead may bring anxiety and looking back may get us down in the dumps..yeah, January does that to everybody. You’re not alone. Listen to that still, small voice inside of you that wants things to be better. Reach out to someone. It really doesn’t matter what others think. It’s your life and it’s worth looking back (and forward) to anything or anyone that made it good. Don’t focus on what you didn’t get or the way you thought things should have been.
That one good thing is worth living for.
An artist does the same with ideas , techniques and inspiration what we all do with our trash. Recycle it. Revisit it. Renew it. Make it come to life!
Hey , I’m even thinking of taking up oil painting again after having set aside the ole’ linseed oil for decades. There’s something good in the familiar, ya know. Like the smell of linseed oil. Strong aromas bring back good things and memories sometimes. Don’t dwell on the past though. Think about today.
You may find healing in the winter of your life. I hope you do..I really do.
Thanks for visiting. I know it’s been a while but I guess I just needed the time…
