Happy New Year!

This life is full of calculated risks. And you're never sure which ones will work in your favour or not.  
But if you wait to feel okay before taking a risk, you'll never jump.
It's supposed to feel uncomfortable.
As you get ready to ring in 2017, think about the risks you're ready to take, and the ones you didn't take in 2016 that you wish you did.
If you go ahead and take the risk (whatever it may be)....and it fails....You won't really be behind at all, because failure is not really failure. It's learning and growing from an outcome we didn't plan.
But now, if you go ahead and take the risk...and it succeeds....How thankful will you be that you JUMPED and can see the progress when you're looking back New Years 2017!
I promise you I'm taking some uncomfortable jumps this year. Let the adventures begin! It's the way I'm going to ROLL.
Happy New Year everyone. I'm cheering to your success (and mine) tonight!

Is it New Years Yet?

Last year I sat in front of our fireplace while life pushed me to do a rapid-fire reflection on the closing year. 
What didn’t work?   What did work?   What were the highlights?
And then: What does the new year look like if it’s full of what works?
Holy instant pattern recognition. If you stay out of your head and ask from the heart, CLARITY can happen like THAT. Snap.
Here’s how it rolled out for me:
What didn’t work…  Situations where I Ignored that weighed down feeling, giving way more than my fair share for the sake of so called harmony…  Eventually you realize that being “spiritual” or running a “conscious” business doesn’t mean that you have to put up with people’s “unconscious” behaviour.
What did work…It really paid for me to take on pro bono work because my new design challenges have been richer. I got softer in the right parts and fiercer on the right subjects, and I’m bringing it.
And then… what does the new year look like, full of more of what works…very, very generally…
: Excessive tolerance is OUT. Equal collaborations always and forever.        : Uninterrupted creative time blocks—this is going to require some significant re-structuring. I’m up for it.
: Relationships are everything.      : More clean, more deep, more Light. All for Love. Devoted.

Revamping the ol' site

So every year I revamp my website.  I've been pretty busy with work and hadn't had a chance to keep updating my own site and social media.  So I've taken it down to add all my new work and change the look.  So I'm going to use this forum for my old site sans the links in case it's needed.  Best I can do for now :O)

The thing about websites...

I'm currently working on a few projects and the thing is - waiting for content always holds up the design!
Note to self:  Be sure to get the content from the client honed down before ya start.....seriously good advise for both my client and I!
