Aiming Forward

I find things when I'm supposed to...



When I thought about how incredibly difficult 2012 was for me,
I wondered if 2013 would be more hardship ahead...
and then, when I was reading somewhere yesterday
I found a blurb or a quote
about the fact that an arrow can only go forward
when it is first pulled backward.

Isn't that just the wonderful truth!?

So, I went a few steps back in health and such in 2012
but hey, it was my intended path to go forward...
in 2013.

Optimistic,
perseverant me.

Arrow to the light!

Thanks for sharing my journey
and sticking it out with me!











Much love,
~k

Kathy, what a wonderful quote!! I have a few health challenges myself and I was rather discouraged about it. Thank You for lifting me up, my friend! I'm wishing you all the best in 2013 and beyond.

I love how optimistic you are about all things Kathy, and you are so right. A woman I used to work with years ago (and very much respected her judgement) told me once... Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better... I take that with me wherever I go. ♥

I am feeling positive about 2013 as my challenges in 2012 have merely allowed me to be more prepared to handle life's journey forward...as the arrow points. Blessings dear with Peace and Joy for all of 2013...

Dear Kathy, I'm glad to hear that you are over the stomach bug and that your mom is doing much better, too. I hope that 2013 will find you both in good health and continuing to move forward. Love the way you designed this journal page. Take care, Tammy

i love that about you!
and send prayers for us all,
that we be so full of light
and peace and joy and grace
that the hard things simply
carve our arrow sharper
and we take on speed and strength
with every bump and bruise
along the way.
you are a beautiful friend,
Jennifer

What a beautiful page. I like it's simplicity and how cleverly you've constructed it and yet it looks so gorgeously simple. Wonderful.
