mantra for 2013: 'cleansing'
A lot of people have 'new years resolutions', but I find that the Universe gives you indications of what you need to do at certain stages of your life.
I think 'cleansing' is going to be my mantra of 2013. It has come to me in many ways:
** Cleaning out my wardrobe
Yes, that one ... you know, when your wardrobe is stuffed full, but you still have nothing to wear?? I have found that I have a lot of 'going out' clothes, but little in the way of everyday wear. To that end, today I am wearing a Lip Service Blacklist skirt to work ;)
I have also done an inventory of all the clothes I need to buy, and which ones really need to go either in the rubbish, or in the charity bin.
** Cleaning out my diet
Of course, I've slipped out of my healthy eating habits over the last couple of months ... back to it, Michelle!
** Cleaning out my workspace
Having the studio painted has made that so much easier - it now looks fresh and clean, and has made me keep it tidy ;)
** Cleaning out my mind
Do you see your social media updates and think 'that person is so annoying!'. I do, so I have been systematically removing them. I don't need that sort of negative energy in my life. Try it - it's liberating!
** Cleaning out my business
Now that I have been working on my weaving, my so-called 'business plan' makes much more sense. I was struggling for so long with the non-commercialism of Threefold Designs - I always knew that I had to create *something* more commercial so I could continue doing more niche work. Weaving has given me the missing piece! I'm hoping that I can sell my weaving, which will in turn lead people to the cross stitch kits - both of which will fund my personal artwork. Sounds like a plan!
PHEW! I even feel cleansed getting all that down in my blog!
How about you, dear readers? Do you have a mantra for 2013?
