Passionate in 2012

You know when you see something that just sticks with you and you catch yourself thinking about it every free moment you have?  Well, I was over at The Answer is Chocolate and Carol's New Years Resolution (Focus) has just haunted me ever since I saw it. You can go here to see it.    I have been wanting to post, to craft, to clean, to organize and just sit down at my computer to see what everyone is doing.  Then, I was outside with the kids (I always take a magazine) and I came across a page in my Women's Day that said, "Brand-New Start", and, that intrigued me too.  Though no one can go back and make a Brand-New Start, anyone can start from now and make a Brand-New Ending.  I liked that so much, I framed it.

(I think I am going to hang it my bedroom.)

That got me to thinking more about my situation.  I used to be so energetic and could multitask so many things.  Now, I really get the meaning and cute stories in, Cooking with Hot Flashes, By: Martha Bolton.  I used to have PASSION.  

Boy it is hard to get a good picture (sorry).

I hung it above my sink in the kitchen to remind me everyday.

I had passion for my Lord and Saviour, my husband, family and crafting.  I made all my gifts, cards, and every meal was home cooked and healthy.  I need my passion back.  So, for The Messy Roost, Passion is the theme for the year 2012.  Hold on to your feathers, I am getting passionate.  Here are a 
few areas:
               Pallet Passion - Monday Menu Planning
               Paper Passion - Monthly cards 
               Placement Passion - Weekly Organizing Projects
               Creative Passion - Regular Crafting

It is time I get some Passion back in my life.  If I am going to Flash, it might as well be a passionate one.  Thank you Carol for such a good idea.
