At the moment, it’s Saturday afternoon. I’m sitting in my living room with my husband, both of us working on our computers, and watching ST:TNG on Pluto TV.
I haven’t updated this blog in almost 9 months, which is disappointing. I’m frustrated, because I spend a lot of time creating content – on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitch, and Discord. I’m not alone in this. But the ease of using those platforms, and the immediacy of feedback, has kept me posting there. I’ve lost sight of the fact that putting time & effort into creating content for myself and my brand is always better than creating content for platforms I have zero control over.
I don’t exactly know how this blog will evolve. But I think it’s time to step back from social media and focus again on posting and building a following here. I hope you’ll join me.
There’s a lot of negativity right now — online, in your social circles, in the news. And all that negativity can erode optimism and drive. You can’t control the things around you; you can only control your response to outside events. Your response determines your outcome. When others are being negative, look for the positive in the situation. Keep taking inspired action to reach your goals. Make an effort to complete one task a day that will inch you closer to whatever you’re trying to achieve.
Believe in yourself. Don’t listen to the naysayers. You have the power to manifest your dreams.
While I got a bit off course in January, with a new month ahead of me, I have renewed focus and I’m ready to take action to reach my goals. Here’s wishing you a month of success!
I’m working through all the business end-of-year crazy: inventory, bookkeeping, estimated tax filings; and trying to keep up with orders. But I’m also looking ahead to a shiny new year full of new possibilities. I’m in the process of relaunching this blog, so new ideas, product, and content coming soonish. Until then, here’s wishing you the best for 2022!
December has been a crazy month, trying to finish up the last of my orders, while attempting to wrap up business tasks ahead of the end of the year. I’ve abbreviated my morning practice to allow for some much needed sleep — moving my gratitude journaling and affirmations to the end of the day, and using the early morning to write out my main goals, and set intentions for the day.
More than anything, I’m thankful for new and return customers, and for all of the support of my online community. As this is year is winding down, I’m looking forward to 2022 and new opportunities and possibilities. I think now more than ever I’m ready to pull out all the stops, and get to the next level with my business, and reach all of my personal goals. I’m looking forward to helping others reach their goals as well. 💙
