Well, I'm back on Match.com with a new, improved profile and I'm meeting someone for coffee Tuesday afternoon at the Teahouse. Send positive energy my way. No more putting someone else's needs before my own. I'm no longer that woman.
On the home front... I think I've finally feng shui-ed myself out. I've been compulsively cleaning and rearranging things since New Year's Eve. My studio has been cleaned to within an inch of its life and completely rearranged. As for the rest of the apartment, furniture has been rearranged, artwork has been moved, and I have lots of new plants to brighten the place up. I now feel like I have room to breathe and the mental space to be creative. And I'm definitely creating.
I'm spending my weekends weaving and working on the Soul Warriors. The work feels powerful and cathartic in ways I can't yet explain. It feels good to be working again. I'll be posting pictures a bit later.
As in years past, I continue to use the period between New Year's Day and my birthday to tweak my goals. Sometimes I find that schedules I've set just aren't going to work with my lifestyle or that goals I've set don't quite support my vision. This year I've released one big goal... the Textiles I: A Creative Approach course I was taking at the Open College of the Arts. I felt as though it was just a big black cloud hanging over my head all of the time. As I was looking at different areas of my life and my goals and asking myself "So what does this do for me?" (a question I'll be asking much more often going forward), I realized that the answer was "nothing". The time I would have spent on the course is better spent in my studio creating.
During the evenings last week I worked through Fabienne Fredrickson's Inner Game of Abundance Mindset Retreat videos again. They've been immensely helpful as I work to put certain things in my life in the right perspective.
And, of course, not only have I made changes to my environment, but I'm also upleveling me. Stay tuned for the evolution.
