2013 – my year in review

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to you!

I’m sitting cross-legged on my floor in my spare room (also known as the junk room, or as I prefer to know it, the ‘craft’ room). I’m going through my 2013 Create your incredible year calendar and workbook .

It’s time to look back before I can look forward.

I can’t know where I’m going if I don’t know where I’ve been and how I’ve got to where I am today. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, good and bad, and if I don’t acknowledge it, I’ll never learn from it and move forward.

‘Cause that’s what life is all about – moving forward.

Getting a bit better every year. (I hope. At least that’s the plan.)

I have to say it’s been an exciting year. I have an amazingly wonderful boyfriend who supports and encourages me with all my dreams and schemes. My little biz is chugging along, bit by bit, and I’ve found a group of like minded women in Leonie Dawson’s Biz and life academy, who encourage and  run ideas off each other so we can all reach our collective goals.

A few of the goals I have achieved this year (drum roll please…)

* Having Internet free days so I can work on my art and not get bogged
     down by non important things
* 200 likers on  Facebook (at this date I’m actually at 214!)
* Meditation classes – I’ve been going sporadically this year – must do it
    more regularly next year
* Opening my heart to love (an extremely personal goal) and allowing myself
    to receive the love that was right in front of me. Also being able to
    properly reciprocate that love.

Of course there’s plenty I haven’t achieved, a few I didn’t really start and some things I thought I wanted at the beginning of the year, and now I’m thinking that they don’t matter so much any more. That’s OK, life is ever changing and your interests and goals should be fluid to reflect this.

So now I move on to setting my goals for next year, and I’m really excited about it. It’s wonderful to think about what I will have achieved this time next year when I’m looking back on 2014 in review.

Now it’s audience participation time. What are your big (and not so big) plans for 2014 – I’d love to hear about them.
