Alright, so we’re through the first week of the new year…how’s it going for you?
Did you make any resolutions?
How’s that goin? 😉
This year I chose to go sans resolutions, in the effort to be honest with myself ~
why make promises I’m not gonna keep?
This year on New Year’s day I took an hour to sit down & really get a clear vision of what I’d like to see the year ahead bring.
I let my mind go BIG with what I desire.
I felt a lightness come over me…a calmness. I felt my angst-ing spirit relax finally!
The potential I see in my year ahead is so exciting & now its up to the daily steps I take to make it a reality!
One of the things I started doing this new year is to document one second of each day.
I discovered Cesar Kuriyama & his project “1 Second App” on Kickstarter last month & fell in love with this idea!
His project got funded & the app is going to be available soon!! But in the meantime I’m capturing a second each day.
Talk about keeping you present to the moments!
|Here’s what the app will look like 🙂
I mean, how cool is it that at the end of the year you’ll have approx a 6 min year in review of your life, in 5 years – 30 mins…in 25 years you can be showing your grandkids a 2 1/2 hour movie of your life ~ so cool!!!!
Check our Cesar’s video story to be inspired too ~ 1Second App
I enjoy the freshness a year brings, the feeling of new opportunities, new beginnings & this week did not disappoint!
Do you ever get that nausceous feeling when a big decision is needing to be made? Yep, right on schedule the quesy stomach snuck up on me & really got me thinking.
I was being faced with deciding this year’s growth for Ch*Armz & I could go safe and steady, which was working, showing increases in profit OR I could push myself out of my comfort zone, which involves some financial riskiness…oh my stomach.
If I was being truly honest with myself, I had lost the “fun” I had been having with Ch*Armz ~ the business side was pulling me down, scaring me & wanting me to keep it safe
~ the creative side was dying to play with new ideas, but is it too risky???!
I knew deep down I needed to make myself uncomfortable, get scared, get creative & get back to having fun!!! So here I go!!!
My mind hasn’t stopped racing with ideas since, it so exciting!! I’ll keep you in the loop of the journey 🙂
Another fun lil thing I’m up to that I want to share (for all my single gals especially) comes from a suggestion of a good friend ~ I don’t know where she hides those wings of her’s but she is an angel among us! 🙂
Over the years, she’s listened to my dating woes & has been especially supportive lately as I go through my first real heartbreak. As we sipped our tea last month, she suggested I start a gratitude journal.
Not just any gratitude journal, but one giving thanks daily for my future partner. Finding daily appreciation in him & in us as a couple, giving thanks for what is coming, in an essence calling it/him into being.
The shift I have felt has been so freeing from my gloom.
I can truly see he exists, that we exist!
Each day prepares me more for all that I dream
Happy new beginnings
Now, I’m off to swing dance lessons ~ do what you enjoy!!!
Have a great week!!
