Intentions, Reflections & Goals

What is it about birthdays that make us all reflective?  I've got a birthday coming up on the 27th of October.  I'm turning 36, which seems random enough, but it feels big.

This year has held some massive shifts for me.  And I don't think I'm the only one.  When I look at my newsfeed or talk to my friends I feel like everyone has big changes happening.  

So much joy (5 babies, 2 weddings & more) & every flavour of heartbreak.

This year for my birthday I'm going to my first shamanic retreat.  I'm sooo excited to participate in the ceremonies & fellowship.  And honestly, I'm a little bit excited for the kid-free, biz-free time.

We were asked to set our intentions for the weekend (maybe *this* was the trigger for all that reflection).  I came up with 2 things.

1.  Letting Go

Letting go of all the relationships, patterns, beliefs, behaviours & processes that I no longer want or need.  Confession: I am sick of the #hustle mentality but if I'm not completely working my ass off I feel guilty.  Like it's cheating to take a lunch break because I work from home.  Or taking a break to go for a walk in the middle of the day when I *should* be squeezing in every kid-free minute at my laptop.  It's bullshit.  I'm not saying I don't take breaks, I do (most days) but I'd love to take 'em without the guilt.

2. Trust

Holy hell has that been my #1 theme for the last year or what?  Not that I wanted it to be, mind you.  But I've written about trust hereherehere, here, & here. Gah! Are you sick of me talking about it yet? 

Learning to trust myself (huge) learning to trust God/Universe/Source even huger (yep, that's a word I checked).  But that's where I'm at now, to trust even when I can't see the whole picture or anticipate the outcome.  To know in my bones that things will work out in the end.  And that's scary shit for a solopreneur.  I think when you own your own biz it naturally brings out your inner control freak (if you're prone to having one of those, as I am).  Which makes trust the most difficult, frustrating, mother-loving lesson to learn...clearly.


Given those intentions, I'm going to look over my Q4 goals & see how I can make them line up with my new Q4 intentions.

I know you've got your goals for Q4 by now, but what are your intentions?

Okay, so I mentioned that it's almost my birthday & this one feels big even though it's only 36 which is totally random.  I want to celebrate with you.






I'm doing something I NEVER do.  Like ever.  And make no promises to ever do again.




Are you curious yet?



Starting Monday, October 23rd until my birthday, Friday, October 27th, 2017 I'm offering 15% off ALL my packages.

If copy is on your list for Q4 or you happen to be a control freak like me who has set intentions to let go of things & trust more this could be the perfect opportunity to hand off something to someone else & check all of those boxes. ;)
