Behind the look, as with everyone, is a life happening. 
Dreams, intentions, disappointments, commitments, expectations and more. 

All the things that make up life.

There are things brewing in my head and heart and as I work through all the ‘stuff’ I find that Christine Kane really keeps me motivated and focusing on my ‘dream’.  
I happened upon her articles last year and chose a word for the last quarter of the year and this year have really been battling with making a choice … today I’ve finally gotten to my word – Thriving.  I need to be thriving in myself, in my ambitions, in my dreams, in my choices, in my decisions – thrive!  I have decided to use an action word and keep it something to work towards.  I am thriving – when I stop the pity party I see how much I’ve got, how much is working and I realise, despite the usual hassles of life – me, myself and I – Wendy – I’m thriving, small steps – baby steps = but advancing all the same.
