Who Am I in 2012?

When I begin a new year I like to look back and reflect on what has gone before then look forward  and make goals for what is yet to come.  One of my fellow bloggers came across a list she had made about herself 5 years ago and shared it with us on January 1.  I read her list and made up my own….but waited til today to share it with you because yesterday was my Project 365 day.  Have you ever thought about who you are?  If I had made this list 25 years ago it would have been very different from the list you are getting today.  I decided that since this is a new day….I am taking a hard look at just exactly who I am and what makes me that.  Warning:  There are 100 of them....and you may get bored before you read them all.  That is ok....scan them and see if there is any one that speaks to you.....

I LOVE your list. I would love to be able to say "I am a singer of songs", but it is not to be...I gotta know what the nickname "Sasafrass" refers too. ???
You're very talented, which I already knew. :-)

Wow! What a great list of information about you Karen. Wishing you many blessings for 2012! It's been wonderful to be blogging "neighbors".

ADDOS: Sooo funny! I have a hard time telling jokes without them being written down, too. It's in my head, I just can't get it out like it's suppose to be! :D

Xazmin said...

There's so many things I don't know which to comment on first. I'm very sorry you don't like sports...but I am very jealous that I can't sing!!

I love pickls, I hate beets, I had no idea you were diabetic.

I think writing a book of stories is a fabulous idea!

There is so much I learned about you, and also so much we have in common! Wishing you a very happy New Year my friend!!

I have never taken compliments well and I'm not good at jokes either! Babies are the best and I have a large collection of Willow Trees. I don't eat innards either.
This was fun. How long did you work on this list?

How fun! (I too suffer from ADDOS) :) If I can get caught up enough, I'll make a list of my own! Happy New Year!
