And so this is Christmas
And what have we done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
When the holidays hit, I start working on my end of the year projects for my business. I run all my reports to see what worked and what didn’t. Basically I get a sense of where I am with my work and how to start planning for the next year.
Somewhere in between the Quickbooks reports and the Facebook insights, my mind wandered into my authentic journey on this blog. This has been quite a year for me and my work. After too much freaking out this summer which then spilled into the fall, I finally completed the 12-week online social media course (just a few small tweaks left!). I also developed a new website to start promoting my speaking and social media programs. I feel like I set the foundation up for my work to start growing in 2013.
On a personal note, I’m feeling pretty darn proud of myself for taking those hard steps out of my comfort zone to write the Transformation Moments blog posts and share my emotions with you all. When I first started blogging, I was vague about certain details if only to protect the innocent but I think we’re past that place in this process. Maybe its time to peel back another layer and keep moving forward to live authentically.
I pushed myself up a tough flight of stairs this year. I’ve accomplished quite a bit but with my end of the year analysis, it looks like I’ve found myself on the landing of the staircase. I could stay here on this landing and set up camp but that’s not where I want to be. I want to get to the top of stairs and look down to see everything that I’ve mastered in my business, my home life with Jake and in the personal world I created.
So here we go again folks … let’s all take a deep breath, figure out how to move off this landing and get back up those stairs.
I want you all to know how much I have appreciated all of your support with your comments, emails and conversations regarding my journey. I feel truly blessed to know that you’re all along with me in the sidecar as we continue through this life together.
