When I write my posts up on my computer I do it on a single page in Notes. Once they’ve published on Blogger I delete them and start fresh. For whatever reason I only deleted the post back to the original goals. Turns out it’s pretty handy to have them there! Then I realized I had started this post on a different page so I wouldn’t lose the “journaling” aspect on the computer - *face palm* Good think I had it “backed up” on the blog!!
Day 5 of our Journey was to envision what life will be like once your dreams and goals have become reality. That one’s kind of fun a little day dream to start the day with, puts a smile on your face for sure.
Day 6 plan and write down at least 7 baby steps that can be taken immediately that will allow me to move towards my goals.
Steps I can take
- meal planning
- start every morning with a few minutes of cardio
- scheduling days to concentrate on different areas of business
- scheduling posts on social media so I can share them across sites on different days
- break down current projects into bite sized chunks that can be done in a day or less
- input one invoice at a time into inventory and check current supplies for accuracy
- consider how to reorganize beads and metals
- start current year receipt folders
- look around for replacement software
- offer to help photograph or write copy for the kiddos ceramics
- start listing and adjusting tags for Valentines and Mothers Day
- clean out a spot in the basement and create a tool/supply room for my son -
Hahaha I dreamt once my basement had become a mini mall, it seems to be on it’s way, kiddos ceramics studio, office for the boy, wood working shop for the hubs, the gym, all it needs is a jewelry kiosk - now where do you suppose I could find one of those?!
Day 7 Pay attention to the words you think and say, self correct where necessary. I like this one. I’ve been doing this since I was 16, but it is really nice to have the reminder with all the negative we get bombarded with on a daily basis anymore. I have noticed the past several years those negative words creeping into my own vocabulary - that’s where the be kinder goal comes from. Kinder to myself, kinder to my family with responsible and positive words.
Day 8 Take a hard look at the story you’ve told yourself about your life, rewrite it so it becomes empowering. This one is going to take some thought. I pretty much already do that….. but there is always room for improvement right? My Mom has always called me a rebel because of my “just watch me” attitude, maybe it’s time to wake that part of me up again? Kind of like that Meme This is the year I will be unstoppable. This year I will be fierce. Which is a pretty cool affirmation. Rewriting that to be empowering becomes In 2016 I became unstoppable the moment I remembered that I Am Fierce!
Day 9 Choose beliefs that enforce your goals. He gave a couple examples that I thought fit perfectly so to be “efficient” lol I grabbed a couple of those to add to mine.
- I chose to be here to succeed, I am finding my way, it’s all making sense.
- I’m protected, guided, and loved; always in the right place at the right time.
Day 10 oops I had in my mind combined 9 and 10 before I even knew what 10 was….. ever efficient I am! :D Choose affirmations that enforce your goals. A Mantra - well can I say how efficient it is to have already chosen efficient? lol OK I’m having fun with it now. I knew this was going to be a great start to my year!
- I am grateful for all that is unfolding in my life and all that is yet to come
- My life is prosperous and multiplies all that I have, give and receive
- I am open and receptive to abundant good
I can actually give credit for the last two to Katie over at the Red Lotus for these, I’ve had them set up as daily reminders for a year or so now.
Day 11 Surround yourself with empowering resources. Ted Talks, Notes from the Universe, groups on FB etc etc Create a book list, video list, whatever it is that supports your choices. done done and done I actually do this a couple times a year it really helps to recharge the batteries so to speak. Day 12 as this posts……. I hope you’ve been playing along, this has been pretty fun so far.
Week One of Year of Jewelry had us introducing ourselves and sharing our goals for the year. I know! Our Jewelry goals, what we want to accomplish by participating, since I only made it as far as April last year my goal was pretty simple, to finish out the year, if I stumble (or my Muse takes a vacation) I’ll just pick myself up, dust myself off, and continue on.
This years theme is Color! Week two was Monochromatic…how fun!…….
|Picture Jasper, Copper, Elk Leather|
Wrapped, Coiled, and Netted
I love how the patina on the copper wire mimics the coloring of the stone.
Of course after I made it I discovered the color of the month had been decided and it was pink. I actually had Rose Quartz pulled for a bracelet but set it aside to make my Owl set. Coral next week and I’m thinking red and turquoise instead of pink. We’ll have to see what my Muse whispers in my ear over the next day or so.
All in all another very productive week. I need to price and write copy but I have several new pieces to list on Amazon that should mix really well with the pieces already on offer.
Thanks for stoppin by!
We'll see you next week!
