Wow 2011 is almost over and what a year it was.
For me it brought my very first large retreat teaching gig and also my first large retreat as a host. I appeared on Good Day Wisconsin 4 (or was it 5) times and through that experience developed new friendships that will only encourage more goodness to come. Molly lost her first tooth this year and also developed a fine sense of sarcasm which both makes me a proud mama and drives me a little nuts. In my personal life I lost 30 pounds (still working on that) and did it through working out and really paying attention to what I am putting in my body. It has been a good good year.
All these experiences made me realize even more than before that my path to finding my place with my art and in life is ever changing and that I am just better off when I accept that. I like that.
2012 is going to be a year of even more...I can just feel it. With a possible huge exposure gig coming up and retreats in Chicago and Connecticut to a visit from a long time art sister Jodi Ohl in July I am super excited for the year ahead.
Most importantly I am going to continue to find my creative voice. I promise to feed it. I promise to embrace all it brings and I promise to allow it to bring me the financial success I have always kind of put off because I hadn't felt I deserved it. Doing what I am in love with doing (creating things) is so rewarding I often do those things for free but no more. I need to start looking at my ability and talent as something to be rewarded for. This is the year. I am excited!
