Perspectives, Point of View, and Gratitude

January 9, 2020

The first month of the new year.

Maybe a time for renewal.

A time for reflection,

and a time to look at things in a different way,

with a new point of view.

2019 brought some good significant changes in my life,

beginning with my career.

I officially retired.

I retired from education,

and now I’m looking to the horizons for something new.

we officially began the build of our new home.

Since we are over a week into the new year and

after much thought about filling the pages

of my new year book of 2020.

I think of the pages filling with new projects, new adventures,

and fresh ideas as I look ahead

with a new perspective.


with much gratitude.

I am so grateful for all the good things that occurred in 2019.

While reflecting on what has transpired in my life,

I think about setting new personal goals.

A new goal maybe in one word, ‘intentional.’

My word of the year.

Intention; intentional!

I want to live more intentionally.

I want to be intentional in all my efforts.

I want to intentionally get more exercise.

Do things on purpose, being deliberate.

I want to intentionally become a better me.

I intentionally want to enjoy life!

I love to really look at things in a different way;

from a whole new point of view.

I want to be intentional in all of my creations.

Maybe that is why I love the rustic and refound.

I don’t know why I do this other than loving the challenge,

and feeling that inner excitement when I’ve discovered a new combination

or creation – I guess you could say it’s what makes me tick.

Yes, I want to live less out of habit and more out of intent.

I want to turn my cant’s into cans and my dreams into plans.

Think intentional about what inspires me and fuels me.

“The new year stands before me like a chapter in a book waiting to be written.”

What will you see this year with a new set of eyes and a whole new point of view?

What is your word of the year?

Thank you for visiting my blog.




‘All things are working (all things are working for my good)
‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)
Hey and He’s never failing (never failing)
All things are working for my good (all things are working for my good)
He’s intentional (He’s intentional)
Never failing (never failing)’   Lyrics ~Travis Greene
