I am creating calendars for Christmas gifts and that makes it obviously impossible not to think of the new year and what lies ahead. 2018 – what do you have in store for me? Or maybe it should be the other way around – 2018, what do I have in store for you..?
The other day my husband called me a fatalist and that stunned me for a while. We talked about it for a while and I explained that I really am nothing like a fatalist, I am actually more of a cynic. However, with the twists and turns of life and having been in some bad places I decided that I needed to be much kinder to myself, and that meant learning to let go of control, learn how to lean back and trust the universe. In that I have faked it ‘til I made it, telling myself that the universe will take care of it. It gets really tireing to be a cynic and have a deeply rooted conviction that nothing will ever sort itself out, I have to sort it out myself. The mind and soul needs to rest sometimes and that it was trust do.
But. If I want to change things. If I need to follow a dream. I will have to work hard and not leave everything to universe to take care of. So I will – in a kind and gentle way – take a grip on 2018 and offer it some great stuff, and much of that I will share with you along the way. To help myself with planning the business side of making a dream come true, I have today ordered Your Best Year 2018: Productivity Workbook and Online Business Planner Lisa Jacobs from Market your creativity.
And I will of course use my Calendar for 2018 – with inspiration and tips from wonderful designer Bonnie Christine – I have come to April, so there is a good chance it will be finished before New Years Eve!
