Creativity and New Year's Resolutions

For 2015, I hope to boost my creativity even more and accomplish great things. I don't know what all of those great things are, at the moment, but I do know that being as happy and healthy as I can be will assist me in achieving them.

One of the things that helps me to achieve happiness is to have gratitiude for things in my life, with that in mind, and in response to my task today, for Daily Challenge, this is what I came up with for my " Three Things to Be Grateful For" challenge. https://challenge.meyouhealth.com/tracks

There are so many things to be grateful for, it's hard to limit the list to only three. The most important one is my darling husband. He brings so much good to my life, from the mundane - the money that pays the bills, to the funny things he does and says, to the dear warmth of him and his hugs. 

Second item I'm grateful for is the power of the written word - having books to read and enjoy or learn from, to the words others write and read aloud at the poetry readings I attend, and my own words I write and bring hope, happiness and understanding or a good laugh to myself and others.

Number three will always be Nature - I am eternally grateful for the trees and plants that grow and flower and fruit, bringing beauty and food to all. And Nature in glorious mode, with the dark cloud and gorgeous rainbows, and the beautiful big blue Australian sky that arcs over the lovely sunny Aussie days!

All of that and more bring me hope and joy every day of my life.

If I may have a fourth thing, that would be my friends, I am so grateful for each and every one of them - from my family who are the most important friends, to the friends I know in real life and all of my friends I've met through the wonderful Online world, I am so grateful for each and every one of them, of you!

Thank you everyone!
