Hello May

This morning following a night of severe
thunderstorms. 
Welcome May. You represent rebirth, renewal, growth & new challenges. I'm so happy you're here.


For the past 6 months, I've been focused on getting back to creating. Ever since closing my Etsy shop & accepting that 1) it was not what I wanted. At. All. And 2) that I wasn't even sure what I wanted & had no new goal to pursue - I've been letting myself just be. No next big thing or goal to achieve. Just a couple of powwows with this wonderful lady that led to an amazing discovery. Yet even then, I knew it wasn't quite the right time to act on anything & that I needed to continue on the same path of turning inward & working on several creative projects.

Fast forward to the present day & I now know that the time has arrived to start moving forward. I alluded to this in my last post & I'm not ready to share in this space yet, but I'm starting the process & once I get some things straightened out, I'll be ready to shout it from the rooftops. 

In the meantime, with the whole spring rebirth theme, I want to get back to focusing on my One Little Word - Possibility. I wrote a New Year's Manifesto instead of setting specific goals, but now I think that the broadness of my intentions contributed to my lack of focus & direction. So I'm going to start setting specific monthly goals & sharing them & my progress here. 

For May:

  • Continue my 15 min yoga practice on the weekday mornings (weekends off)
  • Continue my Couch to 5k program 3x/week
  • Complete 2 more weeks of vegan/gluten-free "diet" for a total of 3 weeks
  • Start research for my new goal (purposefully left vague b/c  not ready to share - Sorry!)
  • Create & continue with all my creative projects & classes
Tell me what goals/dreams are you currently working on or plan on starting on?

i'm working on my body meaning, i am going to get my abs back even if it kills me which those stupid insanity dvds will definitely do!

You are doing EXACTLY what you need to be doing right now. You are listening to your inner self and that is PERFECT. Hats off to you!

As for what I'm working on...the rebirth of my business and how that will look. So much fear is coming to the surface for me and I'm pushing through it (sometimes very slowly and not without some tears!) anyway.

Wow! Amazing pic...though it makes home look somehow ominous. Still can't wait to get back. - M

@Kathy-You're awesome! I am super impressed by your determination. I was reading the comments on Amazon about Insanity & wow...I take back what I told you. It SCARES me.
@Woz-I know about fear - I'm feeling a little of that myself these days. But we will both get through this & laugh at how silly it seemed when we're successful! You can totally do this! Let me know if I can help you in any way/shape/form.
@M-Hurry home! We miss you!
