I don’t know about all of you but Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love decorating our home and staying snuggled inside with our Christmas tree and our pets. Our fur babies like to lay by the fire or on the heated blankets and snooze the evening away while we watch Christmas movies or read. Every time the tree comes out, Soter and Kitty both get comfy on the tree skirt and sleep under the white lights of the tree. It warms my heart every year to see that they seem to love Christmas as much as I do!
This year I find myself looking to the future and making plans to create huge changes in my life in 2018. I’m trying to remind myself to enjoy the moment I’m in and find the best in my current situation, but the dreamer in me prefers to look ahead. I’m loving the work I’ve been doing as a dog trainer. I’m trying to find ways to grow that side of my business because it does so much for me to help families and their dogs stay together. I don’t dread “going to work” when I am training a dog and I feel that is a huge sign for me to try to do more of that. I’m also really enjoying creating accessories for dogs. I love sewing and I find it relaxing and cathartic to listen to the buzz of my sewing machine. I think for 2018 I need to focus more on those things that make me happy and the work that feels rewarding. Hopefully a little extra hard work will pay off in the next year! What are all of you looking forward to in 2018?
