2012 Dreams of a Renaissance Woman

 

Hola gorgeous goddesses!!!

 

Tis the season to be dreaming… setting our intentions for the year ahead using the 2012 Creating your Goddess Year workbook.

As part of our 2012 Dream Extravaganza, I wanted to invite some gorgeous friends to share some of their filled out pages from the workbook & what they were dreaming of for 2012. I get SO inspired hearing other people’s dreams + plans!

2012 Dreams of a Renaissance Woman

 

I finally took the plunge this year and cracked open the Goddess Workbook. I’ve always had many interests from crafts to cooking to writing to empowering women in the bedroom. Last year I felt so unfocused. I tried to do too many things without a plan. I was so stressed last year.

This year, I have Leonie’s beautiful workbook to guide me through 2012. Earlier this month, I found myself with some quiet time (hard to come by with a 2 year old and a 6 year old) and dove into the workbook with sips of grande mocha in between pages. My word for this year is ASK. Last year I just floated from project to project that came my way. This year, I’m being proactive instead of just reactive.

Working from home means a lot of coffee, tea and late hours at my desk. I don’t mind the late hours because it means I get to be home for my incredibly active toddler and pick up my daughter from the bus stop every afternoon. I wrote my Magnificent Mottos to help me power through my late nights and early mornings.

My journey as an artistic mother can be tricky to balance juggle, so I’m sharing the pages from the goddess workbook that will help me focus on family.

Thien-Kim 2012 Goddess Workbook: People & Places

For my family, this year is all about dates. Date nights with my hot husband. Mother and daughter adventures. Dates to see Broadway shows. I should reward myself and my family after all that hard work!

My big dream this year is the beach. As soon as I read the instructions for the birthday celebration page, I immediately knew what I wanted.

Palm trees, sandy beaches, and we can’t forget cocktails with paper umbrellas in them. All surrounded by my gorgeous family. Funny thing is, until I complete the birthday page, I forgot that the beach was on my 100 Things To Do in 2012 list.

Goddess Leonie workbook

That’s the universe working. And Goddess Leonie’s inspiring workbook to pull all my intentions in one place. Time to fill out the rest of my 100 things list so the universe can do its magic.

2012 is going to kick butt!

I’m SO excited to have Thien-Kim as a new friend & Goddess Circle sister. Her enthusiasm for life is totes infectious (like a good disease!)

 

Happy dreaming!

 

LOVE! FULL BEAM!

Dreams of the Creative Everyday Goddess!

 

Hola gorgeous goddesses!!!

 

Tis the season to be dreaming… setting our intentions for the year ahead using the 2012 Creating your Goddess Year workbook.

As part of our 2012 Dream Extravaganza, I wanted to invite some gorgeous friends to share some of their filled out pages from the workbook & what they were dreaming of for 2012. I get SO inspired hearing other people’s dreams + plans!

 

 

Today’s dreaming is by Leah Piken Kolidas of Creative Every Day fame.

She also happens to be one of my favourite watersign sisters, and she makes like RIDUNKULOUSLY cute babies called Annabelle. LOOK AT THE CUTENESS. No really. LOOK. That’s just wild cute. Explosion of ovaries cute. #leonielikestoinstagramstalkannabelle

She is also a mixed-media artist and creative guide living near Boston, Massachusetts with her husband, their daughter and their four fuzzy cats. She loves doing the hokey-pokey with her daughter, laughing loudly, getting messy with paint, and sleep, when she can get it.

 

Dreams of the Creative Every Day Goddess!

I’ve loved using Leonie’s gorgeous workbook as a way to wrap up the previous year and plan ahead for 2012.
2011 was an eventful year for me, with the birth of my daughter, Annabelle.
It seems even more important now to take this time (in the small moments that I can grab!) to focus and plan what I most want in 2012. When time is hard to come by, it’s good to have your priorities in order and know what you want!
My word for 2012 is Love because I want to remember to love all the little moments of my everyday life and also to focus on self-love, so important for a new mom!
So this page in Leonie’s workbook was perfect for me!
Another pull I feel this year is towards simplifying and organizing.
While filling out the page on home, I made the decision to focus on one room per month this year.
Each month, I’ll choose one room to do a little something with each day (even if it’s a very little something.)
Thanks Leonie, for helping me to focus my energies for a beautiful, loving 2012! xox

YAY!
I HEART YOU LIKE FOREVERS, LEAH!!!!
(And Annabelle of the Eyelashes and Swooniness!)
LOVE! FULL BEAM!

How The Happy Woman Creates Her Year

Hola gorgeous goddesses!!!

Tis the season to be dreaming… setting our intentions for the year ahead using the 2012 Creating your Goddess Year workbook.

As part of our 2012 Dream Extravaganza, I wanted to invite some gorgeous friends to share some of their filled out pages from the workbook & what they were dreaming of for 2012. I get SO inspired hearing other people’s dreams + plans!

Today’s gorgeous + useful sharings are by the incredible Sara Avant Stover (aka The Way of the Happy Woman!) She’s definitely a soul sister in the world of women’s work, and I’m so honoured to have her share here.

Sara Avant Stover is, first and foremost, a yogini. Second to that, she’s a motivational speaker, teacher, mentor, and author of The Way of the Happy Woman: Living the Best Year of Your Life (New World Library). After a cancer scare in her early twenties, Sara moved to Thailand, where she embarked on an extensive healing and spiritual odyssey throughout Asia and served as one of the pioneer Western yoga teachers in that part of the world. She now lives in Boulder, Colorado, and continues to teach women about wellness, spirituality, and lifestyle around the world.

 

How the Happy Woman Creates Her Year

 

I’ve been doing Leonie’s Creating your Goddess Year workbook + planner each January for the past three years.

Here’s a video I made after filling it out for the first time in Thailand:

 

It’s a yearly ritual that has reached the “indispensable” status.

You see, my life and life’s work is in service of evolution. I’m here to become a fully realized woman— professionally, spiritually, creatively, and relationally—and to inspire and empower other women to realize the same.

As part of this path, I’m a growth junkie. A transformation addict. A change fiend.

This conscious expansion requires regular check-ins.

What were my triumphs and defeats? Where did I keep my word to myself and where did I betray it? Did I stay on course? If I veered off, was it intentional or sleepy? What, exactly, in me and in my life, is changing? Where am I stuck and where am I soaring?

The Creating your Goddess year workbook helps me to answer these questions with honesty, compassion, and faith.

Over the past few weeks, sometimes with my morning tea, sometimes by candle light in the evening, I’ve been savoring my annual goddess review.

I’ve noted what I’m celebrating and releasing from 2011 (like publishing my first book and surrendering expectations of how the world would receive it).

And I’ve been invoking 2012.

This year I’m giving myself permission act more resolutely from my divinity. To trust my wisdom and my greatness. To move, speak, and breathe as the BIG SHE.

But instead of sharing with you the broad strokes of this vision for 2012, I thought it would be more useful for me to share how I intend to walk my talk DAILY. Because staying on track and holding ourselves accountable for our dreams is the hard part. It’s at just about this point in January that we can start to stumble. We feel the depression and darkness of winter, rather than the New Year’s verve with which we set out intentions.

But if I find ways to stay on track (and then you’re inspired to do the same), we’re all set up to WIN the game we’ve entered ourselves into.

Here’s what I’m doing each (ok, most) day(s) to realize my vision for 2012:

1.

At the beginning of each month I’m filling out the monthly planning sheets (p.76 in the Workbook for January).

I’m filling in “The essence of what I want to accomplish” that month, plus three main “To Do” items.

2.

Then I write the action steps needed to accomplish those three things into the calendar (p. 77 in the Workbook for January). I make sure to check these all against my larger vision for 2012 (which I’ve already uncovered and fleshed out in the earlier parts of the guidebook.)

3.

I’ve made extra copies of the “My Goddess Day” action sheets out of the Workbook (pp. 74 + 75).

Each morning (or sometimes the night before), I fill them out. What are my 3 MIT’s (Most Important Tasks) for that day? What’s my intention or affirmation to help me succeed at those and to stick with them, even in the face of obstacles, resistance, and distraction?

4.

At the end of the day, I review, using the “4 G’s” method. What am I Grateful for? What was Good (did I do well)? What were the Glitches (inner and outer obstacles)? What are my Goals for the next day (here’s where I plan for my next “Goddess Day”)?

5.

At the end of the week and month, I do the same 4 G’s review.

6.

Then, by the time I get to January 2013, I will have actually LIVED my goddess year, everyday.

Thank you, Leonie, for the playful, beautiful, and insightful prompts in the Creating your Goddess Year workbook. And here’s a big virtual hug and hooray for all of you as you too live your visions, daily.

Yay!

That was so gloriously, magically helpful + practical, dearest Sara.

I just LOVE knowing how other goddesses are using the workbook to plan out + MAKE HAPPEN their most exceptional year yet.

GROUP HUGS!

HIGH FIVES!

love love loveeeeeeee!!!
