I’ve been feeling a shift coming for a while. It happens every few years – I can sense that the path up ahead is about to turn, but I’m not sure when it will happen or where exactly it will take me. All I know is I’ve been energized and excited for the past few weeks because I know I’m headed toward something new.
This week’s reader survey is sort of a precursor to this shift – seeing what all of you need help with & would like to learn. I’m still planning and working it all out in my brain, but I’m thinking this new direction will start with local workshops and evolve into the internet. I’ve also been working on this mythical ebook for over a year and I’m feeling it’s time to whip this sucker into shape and let you guys get your hands on it.
Where ever I’m headed I love the feeling of shifting toward something new. I’m hopeful and excited and am digging through my brain & filling up on inspiration to figure out exactly where I’m going.
Here are a few things I’m doing to help this process:
Writing: No matter what I start writing about it tends to shift toward my work and I’ve been scribbling page after page to keep my brain moving.
Thinking about feelings (barf): I’ve been writing about how I want to feel, how I want to make others feel and how I want them to feel about me.
Inspiration: I’m reading post and watching videos from all the women who are inspiring to me and thinking about how I can evolve what I do to channel them.
Make space: I know I want to shift away for working on large client sites, so I’m taking on less & smaller projects to make space for whatever the next step may be.
Stay positive: I believe that positivity breeds good things, so I’m trying to make at least part of every day really good. Even if it’s raining and I’m tired and sore and crabby, I’ll still do something that makes me happy.
Does anybody else get that weird premonition-y feeling that you know your business/career/blog/life is about to change though you’re not exactly sure how?
Just a note: I’ve created a mailing list (sign up here or over in the sidebar), which will be monthly updates full extra design tips, freebies, and first dibs on workshops & ebooks, maybe even a few discounts too!
