|Why did I even think it was okay to say what I thought?|
Compare the “you” from the beginning of 2012 to the “you” that you are now. What new skills or talents have you learned or discovered this year?
I knew it wouldn't be easy but I have no photos of me at the beginning of the year but I had thought it was a good way to show "the change" if any in appearance let alone the "me" that I was and the "me" that I am now.
I know I can't paint but this is a fairly accurate rendition of the look of me at the beginning of the year- I couldn't find a photo even one from the end of 2011 isn't there so the comparison will have to be between one medium and another.
But i think the comparison of both actually reflects the change in me over the year.
|Cooking the plum pudding-and I'm a little thinner|
I am now much more "together" and in a better "heads space" than i was at the beginning of the year. I have comes to terms with my life style here and the way things are/have changed in the past 12 months.
The new skill I have developed is one of creating things in the kitchen in some areas- learning new recipes for things and cooking with a little more confidence.
I'm still struggling with the process of getting paint on a page and finding my own style but I think i have begun on that journey and participation in a number of classes has meant that I am more comfortable with experimentation with paint and ink.
On New Year's Eve Michele had Wendy and I learning something new. I have to admit I haven't played Cluedo again nor have I attempted cooking gyoza which are the things they taught. However I taught art journaling and I think I have learnt more in that area!
