A lot is going on and I am spending time trying to organize myself so to stay the course.
Reflecting on it all I can't help but think how we all create most of our own chaos by either not addressing the need to be attentive and responsible for our actions or by reacting rather than thoughtfully responding to those around us and the chaos they may bring..sigh...

Of course this hasn't stopped me from applying all manner of lip-lip to the inside of my hand while at department store makeup counters. Or from standing in the make-up aisles in every drug store I stop in to frantically search for "the one". I have spent hours, yes hours, at beauty supply places testing and deciding and purchasing pinks and peaches and neutral reds only to store them in the cabinet under the bathroom sink and reach for the Sephora Collection Color Reveal Lip Balm in Unique Pink I purchased out of desperation a few weeks ago.
This $12 product adjusts to your unique pH to create a customized pink shade. It keeps your lips moist and leaves your pout full and pretty. I have gotten compliments even though the color is barely the blush I yearn for but until I find "the one" this will more than do....

I spent much of 2012 learning alot about my family, friends and acquaintances, co-workers and more importantly my self. I now understand where the key players in my life stand and what I can and can not expect from them.
And in turn I have learned, and am still learning, how to define what they should and shouldn't expect from me. I hope to take those lessons into 2013 so that I can continue to live a life that provides the things I need to feel supported and happy.
Like many I make a New Year Resolution List. It isn't written in stone but I do use it as a guide to move toward larger life goals I continually set. The list is a living list. I schedule monthly appointments throughout the year to check in, check off, move around and edit. Those check-ins generate weekly to-do lists that I tried to edit on a daily basis.
Did I accomplish everything on the list?
No, but I am pleasantly surprised to see many things manifested and more importantly many things that I thought I needed to experience, own or do eliminated themselves as the year evolved leaving the core definition of my interests and needs. In the end I did what I needed to do and now I am lucky eough to have 2013 to look forward to. I am, as always, grateful.
So what is it that you want to do in 2013?
What did you do in 2012 that you are proud of and want to continue into the new year?
Have you made your 2013 Gratitude Jar yet?
How will you be ringing in the possibilities of the New Year?

I have always loved the clothing of the mid-late 1930s-early 1940s and mourn the fact that I wasn’t born in an era when women wore hats and gloves, garters and stockings. I am no Isabella Blow (RIP) but a good hat is an amazing accessory and more importantly this year my sister will be able to easily spot me at the train stain!
