And I have to say, while I love it, I'm quite tired of being addicted to my iPhone. One of my resolutions is to stop wasting time on the Internet and Interwebz, and start getting down to business. I'm very good at tricking myself into thinking that I am "busy," when in fact I am just procrastinating and wasting time. It's so easy these days, with an entire world available to me via my computer.
Two of my biggest accomplishments this year were:
- learning to crochet, and making a lot of scarves and some afghans for charity, and also for family and friends at Christmastime.

I'll spare you the graphic details, but it was indeed a year of ups and downs, I was dealing with a lot of issues: from illness, to crippling anxiety and depression, financial woes...the usual culprits. But it was also a year of fresh starts, healing, centering, sorting things out, and sharpening focus.
That being said, I'm going to be taking a little break from blogging & social media for a while. No reason in particular, just need to focus inward and get back into doing some hands-on activities, and maybe "detox" a little from technology. It's a time for introspection, self-healing and peace. A new beginning, with infinite possibilities.
