The image above is a painting I did this time last year which conveyed the energy I was feeling. Being more visible and expressing my "joyful noise" was what I was bringing into 2018.
I was full of ideas. I thought I understood the message, so I rolled with it. (More like rolled right over it.)
I mapped out what my business was going to be. There was going to be this year-long women's group and monthly healing group-work. There were podcasts and posts to be written and client work that extended out a little longer than I had usually done... to do more work.
On the surface, it all seemed great. But to be honest, I think I was moving ahead with those ideas because I didn't know what else to do. They were the things we all do, what we're supposed to do. They matched the noise out there of "grow your business." But as I learned, that energy is nowhere to be found in the energy of my work and business.
This post is about how I learned to work with my business and my work this year. How so much of the planning and doing was for naught. And, how I am taking what I learned and offering it to you.
