Happy New Year! I cannot believe it is already 2016. It seems it was just January last year.
I have selected my own word for 2016 and after much contemplation…I decided on the word “shine”.
Simple Definition of shine
: to give off light
: to have a smooth surface that reflects light
: to be very good or successful at an activity
I am learning to accept being different then I was before. It is not easy, but I try to remind myself of how far I have come in 1.5 years and the alternative (not being alive still)…so shine seems like a good word because it will make me “accept” the “new” me and to do things to the best of my ability.

This was on a friend’s Facebook wall and I had to share it. It holds true for everyone, but especially for those that are struggling. Thank you for another year of encouragement and for your recent well wishes. I had to see the doctor after the vaccines. I had a localized reaction on one arm (which I was able to control with ice/evalating and not steroids) and they feel that since I have immunity problems and it was my first flu shot I reacted severely. I will NEVER get one again, no matter how life threatening it is (being a stroke survivor they want them yearly). The sad part is in order to work with patients at the hospital I will have to do this yearly. I will have to find another way to outreach.
Now, may 2016 bring each and everyone of you peace and prosperity and lots of CREATIVE mojo! I hope to show you NEW creations very soon!
Bring it on 2016!
