here to dare.

Have you noticed that January is inching along? 

It feels like a 7-week month to me. I don’t know why, and I’m not complaining.

I like when time passes slowly. It usually does when we value our time to its full capacity.

 

Today I’m reviewing 2017 and planting seeds for 2018 in my intimate inner-view book, the journal and log I created to make the most out of my years.

I’ve been using this book since 2013, and I don’t intend to stop. 

It’s helped me finish reading a book each month. Yes–finish a book. It’s not easy to set aside time to sit still and actually finish a book these days.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

my intimate inner-view has helped me lean out my wardrobe and throw away/donate clothes I don’t wear–ever–because for some reason I have a habit of stuffing my closet for “someday”. 

my intimate inner-view pointed me toward taking online painting classes.

It’s helped me save money.

It’s helped me focus my spending.

It’s helped me structure time to write articles for publication on Curejoy. com, Rebelle Society, and Phoenix Soul magazine.

If you wanna join me for a blast of a 2018-year, get your copy here. I’ve made the price pretty compelling. It’s an easy commitment to make.

And each month I’m gonna post my revelations, reflections, and outcomes on the page above (the my intimate inner-view page on this blog–do you see it up there?).

I want you to post yours too!

I cannot wait to hear about your year!! I can’t wait for you to share.

Share your goals. Achieve them ALL–big and small.

We’ll go from here to DARE together.

winter.

They’re gonna be taking down the holiday lights. This is the time of year I could use a birthday or some kind of celebration. 

With colder, darker days ahead, I could be inclined to sleep more, drink more, and watch every episode of Dexter.

Hibernation calls.

But I ain’t answerin’.

Instead, I’m gonna bundle into my favorite wool sweater with the big B on the front and journal in the my intimate inner-view book I created.

I’m gonna finish my next book, JoG–and BTW it’s not a book about runnin’!

And I’m gonna paint on a giant canvas that’s been waiting for me since August.

I’m gonna create.

I plan to use my greatest gift–my imagination–to make this winter and the beginning of 2018 SPLENDID. Now, isn’t that an under appreciated word? SPLENDID.

Let’s not waste it! Use it to create the beginning of your year.

The only time I’ll be burying my head in my television is for the February Olympics.

Life is too frickn amazing to nap away, complain to ashes, or numb with Netflix.

How are you gonna use your imagination in the next months? 

What will you create?

 

write into realness.

Don’t let the year go to waste. Instead of balling up another year and tossing it into the can, write your life into realness and super-ness.

Pay attention. You’re about to experience the best jam you’ve ever had.

You don’t have to let your time fly by.
