Creative Every Day and other new starts for the new year.

CED is off and running, the theme for January is NEW.

In an effort not to bounce around like a ping pong ball with enthusiasm to do lots of NEW things I am concentrating on simplifying my life. Making time for the important things and working on avoiding the emotional storms of 'what ifs' that threaten happiness and achievement everyday.

My inspiration is the 2009 video of Susan Boyle rocking the world at her 'Britains Got Talent' audition. Even knowing that her singing was going to shock people, it took incredible courage to stand up there knowing that the audience was snickering at her.

A couple of things struck me about this video, one of course, is her talent, the pleasure of hearing her sing and the reaction of the audience. The other is that the audience was GLAD to give up their cynical eye-rolling reaction to her appearance and demeanor and WANTED to celebrate her success.

I think we all get caught up the the negative too easily and it is nice every once in a while to be shocked out of it - in a nice way.

If you haven't watched in a while, sit back and enjoy.
