Look Out 2014!

"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year."  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am a little behind on my 2014 "get better/do better" list.  I no longer make actual resolutions because I feel they set people up to fail.  Instead, I look toward small achievements I can make each day that create a larger victory over the course of the year.

I intend to give this blog a little makeover - a little blush here and dab of lipstick there.  I am tired of looking at the basic blogger template and have been itching to make it my own for quite some time. I need to pick this baby apart piece by piece and put it back together the way I want it to be.

I already work out a few times a week but want to up my game.  After seeing my sister unable to move her legs even an inch, it made me want to move mine and not take that gift for granted.  If she can learn to stand with shattered ankles, I can move my ass a couple more days a week.  I am thinking of joining a Pilates class.

At the end of each year, I try to write down the things I loved about my business and the things I need to change.  I have learned many lessons from my silly mistakes.  I feel it's all about tweaking the foundation that has been laid.  Someone once told me owning a business is a marathon; not a race. I need to remember these words when I become frustrated when things are moving slowly.  I would like to take on more clients and begin doing e-design.  I need to find fellow designers in my area for support and  inspiration.  This will be a big year - I can feel it.

I am a relatively calm gal...except when I step into the car.  This angry habit has slowly transpired over the last couple years, living in the rat maze that we call home.  Just because I put the word "fantastic" before the word "asshole" does not excuse my harried behavior.  I could go on for days about the driving style that has become the norm in our pretty, little suburb but I will spare you. The fact is these people who must have obtained their driver's license from Walmart {oh, you know who you are!} are not going anywhere, so I need to change my demeanor.  Flying off the handle and calling people names under my breath only ruins my day.  This one will be difficult to change as it feels so,so good to lash out.

I have been feeling this pull lately that I must find a way to give back and make a difference.  While I LOVE working with clients, I also want to do something each week to leave this world a little bit better.  I want to do rather than only give money.  I want to "be the change".


Have the best day ever!
