As this new year was creeping up upon me I decided that I wanted to take on the challenge of following through on an idea that has been on my mind for quite some time. For a while now I've wanted to digitize some quotes from a bear calendar that I have so I decided that I'd post them on this blog in hopes that doing this would also help me be more active with my online endeavors.
I've decided that this year I'll share my family's bear calendar quotes. I've learned to schedule posts so this task of posting a photo of each quote one per day is realistically manageable for me to do now. And if I have extra thought or story pressing in response to the quote of the day then I'll try to share them too.
How is this doing and how am I doing? I started creating gifts and established my own gift basket business at home and online because it makes me happy to create fun and beautiful things and be able to share my talent. Giving gifts is a way to show our love, friendship, and appreciation to one another and that will always be something that I want to be a part of. So, an old goal to find and make happiness in my life and the lives of others around me is still strong as can be. This year I'll just add a quote a day in hopes to give us all motivation and a smile.
I find my peace through the knowledge of Christ's gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. Through that I have come to know my Savior, take upon me His name, and use his freely given gift of atonement for everyone. In short - I want to be happy. I want to live so I might qualify myself so that I might be able to live with my Savior and my Father in Heaven again along with my perfect stillborn daughter, Rosalin, and all my other family members who follow in their footsteps as eternal families. I mustn’t lose this goal but must find ways to be active and not reactive in life and remember that stopping to smell the flowers along the way is ok. One motivational thought or religious thought each day I think can never be overdone.
I've been also pinning my photos of each quote per day too. When I am done, January 1 next year, all my quotes should be then digitalized as photos on my Pinterest board. You can check them all out here:
