#reverb10 - Day - 28 - Achieve

December 28 – Achieve.  “What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.”  (Author: Tara Sophia Mohr)

Yesterday my daughter asked me what my resolutions were going to be this year. I didn’t have a specific answer, “I may not make any this year.”

It seems to me that making resolutions is an affirmation of what is wrong. 2010 has been a transformative year for me and somehow I am not willing to acknowledge what is wrong with me. Yes, there are things I could certainly resolve to do but none of them are much fun, inspiring or joy-filling. For the first time I am not looking forward to starting over or recreating myself. I’m looking forward to continuing this path that I have journeyed on over the past six months.

Last year at this time I created a vision board. Or, what I thought was a vision board. I called it a vision board. What it really became was a collage of resolutions. While I did not actualize this vision in full, I am taking time today to honor myself for what I did create and accomplish. My goal is to continue building on those things and be more accepting of myself as I am where I am.

The one thing I would like to achieve next year is building my business, Kreative Notions. I just started it a few months ago and I want to return to the initial vision I had when I thought up Kreative Notions and build upon that. At this time next year I would love it if Kreative Notions were a contributor to my household finances. (I’m certain my husband would appreciate that too!) If I can manage that, I’ll be extremely happy and satisfied.

A few things I can do in the mean time?

  • Release hesitation and self doubt about having a business
  • Develop a working schedule
  • Less talk – More action
  • Promote myself and my business – Put it out there
  • Have a contest
  • Practice patience
  • Release attachments to the outcome
  • Acknowledge my progress
  • Be open to new opportunities
  • Collaborate
  • Write
  • Go to Zumba class
  • Read
  • Dance
  • Play…..
At the moment, however, I’m all about posting this REVERB10 entry, taking down the Christmas décor and gathering supplies for a 2011 vision board.

Happy New Year!
