hey there lovelies and a very happy thursday to you, wherever you may be. today i wanted to share with you some thoughts and feelings, tales and triumphs from around these parts lately.
i included a picture of my desk space above this post, as this is a space i have been spending a lot of time in lately. filming for my goddess ecourse, putting together orders and christmas presents. i love it here, some days sunny, other days grey (more often grey in the winter). with views out over the garden and an in-built cosiness that is very welcome during the winter.
2014 has been a year of believing in myself. of putting myself out there and learning new things.
it has been a year of ups and downs, happiness and disappointment.
i'm reflecting on this progressive year and making plans in my mind for the upcoming year. i've also been giving some thought for my word for 2015. my chosen word for 2014 was believe, and it has served me quite well. i have gone from earning all my money from a draining day job to earning at least half my monthly income from my creative skills regularly, each and every month. this is huge!
i want to continue with that rate of progress in my biz in 2015, so i have decided that 2015's word(s) are "self sufficiency".
i have been fascinated with all things self sufficient and have decided that 2015 will be the year this all comes to fruition for me. i will be self sufficient and work for myself completely. i will start to grow our own veg, learn to make jam and canned/frozen fruit and veg and learn to make our own wine supply! (i already have a set of cranberry wine fermenting away as i type - exciting!)
i would also love to have a wood burning range installed in the kitchen too, but that might stay a pipe dream for now.
i will learn to altar clothes and complete my first quilt.
i will finish weaving my first woven rug too!
all of this extra work will be part of my healthy routine too - gardening = exercise!
i plan to take some time off over christmas and new year, so the blog will be pretty quiet until the new year. (i will be sharing one more freebie friday post tomorrow though!)
then i'll be back with a vengeance - ready to take on the world, self sufficient style!
have a fabulous christmas lovelies and a sparkly new year.
