Yay! It FINALLY feels like fall is here! I bask in the memories of getting ready for the adventures of a new school year. Getting new notebooks, organizing pens, markers, and pencils, making book covers from grocery bags—wow, there’s a memory—are the stuff of halcyon days.
Before diving into the remainder of this year, I’m getting out my iPad and Apple Pencil and envisioning the future… I’ve drafted it here. Are you feeling the same?
I am asking myself,
- Where have I been this year—both literally/on the planet, mentally, and emotionally?
- Where am I now and what are my plans for the next three months? Remembering to keep my focus on how much I have achieved—and celebrate it—and not feel any discouragement about how much I have yet to accomplish to achieve my goals for the year…
For me, this has been a year of transformation—folding my many interests, areas of experience, and expertise (and websites) into one place/new offering… helping me, and all I serve to understand my work in a new, more integrated way. It’s been a challenge—really bittersweet— to talk with my wonderful web designer, Margaret Rode, about closing down sites I have had for over a decade, and incorporating aspects of my more recently developed sites into jillgreenbaum.com.
Where are you? Is it full steam ahead, your direction charted? Do you desire to ease a burden, move in a new direction or perhaps, just pause before choosing your next steps?
As I imagine these next 3 months/12 weeks/85 days—wow, that day count makes it seems so intense—I am excited! It will be a time of seeing if I can exceed my goals for the year AND reduce the breakneck pace of the previous nine months. Professionally and personally I feel energized.
What about you?
- What are you aware of right now?
- What is calling to you?
- What do you really want?
- What would your future look like, if it went as you want it to?
I hope you’ll contact me if you want support playing with these questions!
