word ...

So i wanted to start the year off with a meaningful word ... one that would carry me through the year, one that would remind me to grow, to challenge myself, to become a better me ... and it didnt come to me till late last week ... I had to sit on it for awhile, to mull it over .... forget it, remember it, write it down .... doodle it, play with it ... and finally scrap it. While i was scrapping it I knew that i had found the perfect word for this year .... introducing .... insert drumroll here .... RECLAIM

And that kind of tells you where i am at these days ... i am tired of being overweight, tired of being ill, being late, being stressed, being tired etc .... and i need to reclaim my heath, my body, my joy, my creativity ... this year i am reversing the aging clock, the grey hairs and the chronic exhaustion ... i am kicking illness to the curb and will dance on the table tops when i do ... so here i am ... right now ... sitting with RECLAIM .... I plan to do another layout at the end of the year ... i wonder if there will be a difference ? ...

Fantastic page Ms. Jo. Love the word, love the theme. I think there is good chi about this year. It may be one of those uphill kinds - lots of hard work, but I think it will be positive. Like after a good walk, to somewhere with a view. You (and me too) will be able to look out and survey our world and think how great it is to be where we are. You're good people Jo, good people. And damn woman, can you scrap!

Jo, I think we need to have a conversation. I don't know if what I've been through will help you or not but this sounds so much like me.
