Thank You

I can't believe it is December. The end of the year is near. How did you do this year with your goals? Did you make goals? If not another year is around the corner and you can start today to build on a goal plan. What would you like to accomplish for next year? It could be the smallest thing to a huge goal plan. You are in control and you make it happen.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog. I want to thank those that sent comments because that helps me in knowing how people feel about the blog or what went right or wrong. I thank those that have signed up as followers. I appreciate your support.

I thought I would not enjoy writing a blog. Why? Well, at my previous place of employment it was part of my job to write technical user guides for programs that we supported for our clients. I hated writing those user guides. I was so happy when I didn't have to do that anymore and said I would never want to do it again. So when I kept hearing that if I wanted to expand my needlearts in the teaching capacity, having a blog would be essential - I cringed. I couldn't believe that I had to write again. But after starting I fell in love with blogging. There will always be better blogs. There will always be ones that are better in knitting, crocheting or any other craft. But that is not the point or of importance to me. The point is to have fun. I have passion for the needlearts along with other loves of my life and I want to share that with you.

There was a great lesson learned in starting this blog. We all have had some bad experiences that have caused us to utter those same words of 'I will not repeat that again'. But I learned not to take a bad experience in life and think that it will be the same with another experience. You could stop something great from coming in because we put up a block. That doesn't mean our next experience will be the same. It is a different situation why I am writing. It is for my passion and I have found so much enjoyment in writing this blog. Of course time and content are always an issue, but I continue to work on that. Being exact with grammar is a challenge because I want things to be perfect and I am not perfect with grammar. But I look at it as a continuous journey of learning. Have you felt the same way with something you went through in your life? I'm sure there are those that can relate.

When it comes to doing your craft, whatever it may be, don't stop learning. So you couldn't pick up a technique right away. That one pattern has been a challenge. Stop, regroup and try again.

So what about you and your goals for next year? Have you started to think about them? What about your crafts? Are there goals you want to set for learning new techniques or working on a pattern you would not try before? Start today thinking about those goals and writing them down because as this year went so fast the next year will also and you want to say I accomplished at least most of my goals.

"Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind."
Seneca (Roman statesman, philosopher and writer)

Happy goal setting.

Chau (Bye)
