Every new year, as I work through the plan for the business, where i want to take it, what I envision, and where I want to stretch and grow and challenge myself. I also do that personally and part of that process I choose a word…. actually many words (feelings), that will help direct my decisions. This process has changed me personally and professionally. It’s a combination of my own intuition and part of what I have gleaned from Danielle LaPorte’s book Desire Map. I always choose one word to focus on, last year was give, and man oh man did I give, it gave me such joy, made me feel abundant. This years word is INSPIRE. I want to inspire as many as I can to create, to reach, to grow, to put their big girl panties on and go for dreams. To inspire a love of art, from creation to purchase. To inspire myself to grow, and learn more, to step out of my comfort zone just a little bit more. To inspire my husband and children. To inspire my inner circle of peeps. The idea of a word always begins with a basic idea of what I want to do but by the end of the year becomes so, so much more. I can not wait to see what this year has to hold. I’m so excited I can hardly contain the ideas, the motivation and oh the plans… it’s gonna be great!
I pray everyday that I can inspire, encourage, motivate and love you right where you are!
Speaking of inspiration…. every Sunday I will be coming to you with a video of a speed painting, techniques or products that I am having fun with! So Lets start today with this video of this piece with my word of the year!
Enjoy the video…. You are loved!
You’ve chosen the perfect word for you! You have been an inspiration to me from the day I met you. Love this piece you’ve created. Butterflies are a favorite of mine, they’re part of my logo and I stamp a butterfly on the back of each of my canvas. Thanks for sharing my friend!
