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
- Go to Zumba class
Happy New Year!
