Remember, when I wrote last year that my word for 2013 was Authenticity? Well, I got my share on that. Brought back to my core, what I love.
And for the first time in years I have the feeling I am walking my own path, feeling the ground under my feet. Not doing what's expected from me by others, but what I want to get out of life. No fuzz, no frills, just thinking about where I am heading.
I am grateful for a very purifying year, especially the last half year. Some job changes are in progress, and I started my course in being a management trainer, giving courses in management and leadership. I am busy with starting my own business in management training, still all very small, and learning, reading and enjoying all my books.
And quilting? Last week I started with something new. Just needed to. The same way I dropped all my quilt stuff in roundabout June, I picked it up to let my creativity find a way out in quilting again.
I needed this time to get on my own path. And someway, somehow, I think my quilting is going to bring my further. And maybe it changes. Don't know, we'll see. I have learned these last 6 months that sometimes a standstill is needed for progress in another direction. It's okay for me.
And with my silence for the last 6 months, some of you were worried about me. I was learning my lessons. Thanks for your kind words, they helped me through hard times!
The last days of 2013 are coming up. I will think about a new word for 2014. I will make sure to choose a word that has a very uplifting impact for the upcoming 12 months!
Back on the 1st of January. 2014 That is.
Have fun quilting! And if not, then don't quilt. That's okay too.
