With the start of the New Year brings lots of free courses, live calls and summits.
I have signed up to the following –
The MB3 with Makenna Johnson is a weekly call for the first 4 weeks in January starting on the 8th. The calls will be recorded. Makenna was my coach during 2014 and working with her was inspiring and she knows her shit. So if anyone can help you with business planning, creating change in your business or life it is Makenna.
The Thriving Artist Summit “Artists, Designers, and Makers. Take Your Creative Biz To The Next Level! Join Us For This 100% FREE Online Event And Learn From Highly Successful Artists, Experts, And Mentors!”. Sound too good to miss!
Grow Your Depth, Nurture Your Brilliance is hosted by Andrea Schroeder and will be interactive calls where they will focus on answering questions about the topic of the call. The subjects of the calls are varied from WordPress to poetry. Also one of my favourite bloggers is on one of the calls Susannah Conway.
Create Your Color Story, consists of free “Year of Color” prompts throughout 2015, a free rainbow mediation and journal pages. This is run by Louise Gale
I am going to be inspired for the first few weeks of January. Lets hope the feeling will last for the whole of 2015.
Happy New Year and lets make this one the best yet.
I have been busy creating a new website called ‘Island Holistic Life’. It is to help promote health and well-being on the Isle of Wight.
A healthy mind equals a healthy body and vice versa.
Island Holistic Life is a place to learn about different holistic practices and how they can be beneficial to your health and well-being. There is also a calendar of events and classes that are taking place on the Isle of Wight.
Being back on the Isle of Wight has made me realise and notice how many holistic therapist there are here. It is quite amazing how many kind and healing people there are here, who want to help others and spread the healing light. I have created this space to spread the word and the work of these wonderful people, giving them the opportunity to shine in the field of work they love and spread the love while working.
Please take the time to pop over to Island Holistic Life and see what is going on.
Share you wisdom
If you would like to write an article for the IHL blog or know of anyone that would please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rediscovering my love for photographing texture and old things. Lots of art and a surprise tea delivery!
A bit of art, a walk on the beach and spring has sprung!
February photos; lots of art and creative time. Still loving Lifebook and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in gaining more confidence and learning more techniques.
Here are my photos from January…I started my workbook from Leonie Dawson, I recommend this workbook as it is great for helping you with your goals and how to achieve them. I have completed lots of art work as I am taking part in Life Book 2014, leaning so many new techniques and building my confidence try them out in my own work. I am still making my own cleaning products using vinegar and EO’s and finally I did a vision board.! January was a creative month and February is shaping up to be similar.
Today my life-coach Makenna reminded me that in life you are allowed to let go of the ‘shoulds’. Some of my ‘shoulds’ are being looked at by me and maybe they don’t belong in my life….I should write a bio for my blog; maybe I could have a load of photos, a photo of my vision board, a photo collage of things I like to do and a collage of my artwork, they say picture is worth a thousand words (inspired). I should sell my work and be an artist; I think you can be an artist without selling your work. I should write a to-do list and do all of those things on it and if I don’t do them then it means I am not doing enough! I should write a blog post at least once a week and then get pissed at myself when I haven’t done it. I was reminded that; why do it if you don’t enjoy it, why force it, if you don’t like it, why would you do it? I should do this and that, I should know what I want to do with my life and I should go to bed early! No more shoulds in my life.
Makenna also introduced me to the Desire Map by Danielle LePorte and I just fell in love with her and her style. So now I am learning and thinking about how I want to ‘feel’ and how to get things done at the same time. ‘Inspired muchly’.
Hehe I just thought to myself ‘I should put a photo with this post…well I am not going to!
There’s something good in everyday
Over the last year or so gratitude has been an important part of my life. I spend time each day being grateful. I think it is important to take note of things in your day to day life that you are grateful for. I have a gratitude notebook that I keep next to my bedside and most days I note down something that I am grateful for. Gratitude equals happiness.
Here are a few of the things I was grateful for in 2013 –
- Watching the snow fall silently from the sky
- FatMumSlims Photo-a-day prompts
- Discovering new art equipment and techniques
- Leonie Dawson for her “Create Your Incredible Year Workbook and Planner 2013”
- The AC where I met some great and knowledgeable ladies
- My Oracle cards
- Visiting family, breathing in the fresh sea air
- The Right Brain talks from Jennifer Lee
- My faithful Gelli Plate, found textures and other inspiring bits and bobs
- Spending time with Mum on our city break in London, going to the Ritz for afternoon tea, watching Let it Be and the Lion King
- Getting to play Lego with my nephew
- Going up the Shard for my birthday
- Tea from Danmala Teas, Lindsey Luna the wonderful tea goddess
- My heat-gun and making stencils without getting a blister
- Physic Garden in Chelsea, London and the marvellous salad
- Days out in London
- A weekend on a canal boat with Jenni
- Hot sunny days and blue skies
- Moving to the Isle of Wight and our new home
- My Dad coming to the rescue and mending things
- Country walks
- Swimming in the sea
- Watching a swan feather float towards me after asking for one.
- Herbs, tinctures and crystals
- Crafting it forward
- Walks with Mum
- My Creative Coach
- Sunsets over the houses and at Gurnard
- Helping out my mother-in-law painting a backcloth
- For my Mum getting me a gingerbread house to decorate with my Nephew
This is just a small sample of the things I am/was grateful for in 2013.
Here is a link to a great talk on gratitude.
There are only 4 days left to sign up for the Amazing Biz & Life Academy before the price doubles, it is currently $199 and it is only this price until the end of this month… If you have been thinking about joining now is the time to jump in.
I joined up awhile back and have been inspired by the Creative Goddess course and I am really looking forward to starting the Business Goddess E-Course on the 1st October. I really need the guidance and inspiration at this time in my life. I am now self-employed and really want to make a living out of the things I love, along with other adventures on the way.
Read Leonie’s article here if money is an issue.
The Amazing Biz and Life Academy is not just for business owners, there is a whole section filled with life resources to help you transform your life – creativity, health and home. Meditation kits and goal workbooks to help your dreams come true.
If you are a business owner it will help in these areas –
