Life from Scratch

Starting over in a new year is like receiving a gift. A new beginning. I have lots of dreams, wishes and hopes for 2016. Getting back to writing is one of them.

I am not making resolutions, but I have lots of goals. Music, health, education. And mostly to be a great mother. All the other skills will help with that goal.

A guitar has magically come into my life, and I am going to learn how to play it. I consider it one of my two great Christmas gifts. The other was an old sewing machine. Both will stretch me and help me to be more creative. They are great gifts for my brain.

Since developing the brain of  my Munchkin is an ongoing goal of mine, I cannot see how I can pass up opportunities to learn. I mean, how can you be a great mother without being a great teacher? Great teachers are also great students. I will be forever a pupil in the school of life.

For my own accountability here is a list of learning goals I have.

Improving myself as a world citizen, wife, mother….

Learning to play guitar.


Improving my language skills in both tongues

Being more creative

Expanding my skills with the sewing machine

And learning how to cook more wonderful HEALTHY foods

Strengthening my relationships

And basically, Learning anything new!

I would love to hear about your goals. Please feel free to tell me in the comments.

I wish you all a wonderful new year! I hope you will take hold of your life and live it fully! May God Bless you my friends!

  1. You are already so creative and kind — and I am so lucky that you are my friend!
    Great list of goals …. I should work on one too … so far though it seems to be a day to day process.
    Good luck with the guitar! I put a video on Facebook of a guy named Seasick Steve — he plays a one-string, electric, washboard guitar. One string! That’s my speed 😉
    Hugs to you — and Happy New Year!
