Reflection on Freedom!

 Hello, Crafty Friends!

One of my New Year's resolutions was to rid myself of anything or anyone that made me feel less free!   I stopped feeling "obligated" to do what was "expected."  Now I enjoy a kind of freedom I can't explain.

I don't have to give 110 percent, go the extra mile, or keep a stiff upper lip.  What is the point of "suffering in silence" when a single word might bring relief?  Why should I look for the best in others when those "others" are not interested in looking for the best in themselves. I Prefer to spend my time celebrating the people among us who don't require a "deep dive" to find their empathy, honesty, or humanity!

Recently, I was working on a product review.  It was just a stamp and die set from a company marketing its craft products on Amazon.  I didn't spend a lot of time on the image, I used two or three colors and that was it, but for some odd reason, this card became a reflection of the energy I have in my life right now.  I feel so exhilarated and so very, very free!
