What's In A Word!?!

Lots of people are choosing their "WORD" to focus on this year.  I haven't given that much thought until today.  I have been sorting out why I had withdrawn last year from blogging.  From showing projects I was working on.  From sharing that I was even BEING creative.  Then, I kind of went through a period of the dumps at Christmas.  Not like me at all.  All really started on the same day.

I got to thinking back to when it did start. A comment made about a profile picture and comment in my status line on FB was the culprit.  My "friend" does not have a clue and I would never let on.  I no longer post on FB. That's OK, not crazy about the place anyway, though I do like some games.

So why the pic of Snoopy doin the Happy Dance on New Year?  Because this is STILL a new year.  Because I LOVE Snoopy.  Not so much the comic characters that accompany him...I LOVE Snoopy and all his alter egos. So I am joining Snoopy in the Happy Dance and my word for 2011 is INHIBITION.  I will post my work to share with anyone that visits and its gonna be Happy Work cause I'm over the insecurity that I let one person wash over me.

  2. Hi Carol. I don't do FB either, it's just to much going on over there and to me I don't like crowds. I'm sorry about that one person making unnecessary and hurting comments. Don't let that stop you from being your creative self and I sure do look forward to seeing your wonderful creation. Yay!! You go girl. Have a wonderful creative week.

  7. You are beautiful inside and out Carol. Dont let anyone ever make you feel differently. I was wondering why you lost your drive for blogging and werent posting pictures of anything new. Hugs my dear and on to a new and even better Carol (if thats possible)I look forward to seeing what you are gonna be doing this year.

  8. So glad that you are doing the "Happy Dance" again. We all get into a slump or grump, but I truly believe blogging, journaling and doing our own thing can keep us going. The New Year to me is until we get back to the end again.

  9. It's not easy to put yourself out there. And it always amazes me how one negative comment can undo one hundred positive ones. I'm so glad that you overcame it. You have a lot to share through your blog and I look forward to receiving your gifts. You're awesome...and you're due for a very Happy New Year!! xo Susan

  10. I'm glad you're feeling better and ready to do happy dances! I think Susan is right - we hear that one negative comment and all the positive ones fly out of our heads. You're an amazingly talented and wise woman and I'm happy you're remembering that! I not only want to see your work, I desperately need to - I need the inspiration because I'm getting lazy! Take care.

  11. Congrats, Carol!! I'll join you in the happy dance (and in the opinion that FB just doesn't do it >:-P )

    Can't wait to see where your inhibition takes you!

  12. Good for you. I'm glad you aren't letting what one person said stop you from sharing. Now, if only I could figure out why I am doing exactly what you've been doing....

  13. glad your feeling creative and sorry you had to deal with one of those weird people who hasn't got a clue. I love snoopy too, and woodstock!

  14. An interesting word choice. So many times we let inhibition get in the way. I strongly recommend you read The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. It will help you embrace your inner artist.

    My word, by the way, is Trust. It is something I need to do more often (!)
