My goal with choosing this word is to inspire myself to grow my Close to My Heart business in 2012. I want to inspire the members of my Sandy Hearts team to grow their own businesses--we could all do with extra money, right?! I want to inspire myself to continue growing and changing in my new life. I want to inspire others to create and scrapbook their memories and stories. I also hope to inspire other women to be STRONG. I found strength in myself this year, and although right now is really hard, I know I am STRONG and I can find my way out of this. I am a firm believer of one door closes...one door opens. I am waiting for the right door to open and I am excited to see what awaits me in 2012!
