Celebrating 2010: A Year in Review

With the year coming to a close, I took some time today to reflect back on 2010. In 2008 and 2009 I made exploding boxes to commemorate the year and this year I decided to make another one. It is such a fun keepsake!

What I’m celebrating from 2010:


Personal Growth

  • Participated regularly in bi-weekly Nurture Huddle calls
  • Invested in high-end mentoring program
  • Participated in Art Every Day month for the fourth year
  • Did morning journaling and read lots and lots of books

Wealth & Abundance

  • Hired a new, super awesome bookkeeper
  • Worked with bookkeeper to develop a budget and forecast
  • Kept up with monthly managing the moola
  • Put myself back on payroll for most of the year

Health & Wellbeing

  • Practiced yoga regularly
  • Attended step, body conditioning, and Zumba classes
  • Went swimming on hot, sunny days
  • Tried acupuncture for the first time
  • Treated myself to getting a massage every once in a while
  • Honored my self-care Fridays


Physical Environment

  • Moved from shared office to my own creative space
  • Had housecleaner come regularly
  • Organized dresser drawers

Fun & Recreation

My reflection questions:

What was the most exciting, heart-stirring thing that happened in your life and/or business this year?
I finished writing my book. It was a challenging, all-consuming, and super-exciting process. I can’t wait for it to come out in February.

What was your biggest learning?
I have extremely unreasonable expectations about what I can get done. I need to give myself a break. Really!

How did you stretch yourself?
Putting together the book definitely stretched me. I invested in a high-end mentoring program with Andrea J. Lee. This was a stretch financially and also mentally because it means I’m stepping into my business in a much bigger way which is a little scary and also super exciting.

What did you enjoy doing that you want to do more of?
More yoga, more time with friends, more nourishing self-care Fridays, more creative time.

What do you need to stop doing or let go of?
Feeling like I need to do everything (and getting down on myself when I’m not able to).

What new opportunities are available for 2011 and beyond?
Leveraging the book launch to expand my reach further and to grow my business more, developing new offerings for creative entrepreneurs, creating coaching programs, developing new products, speaking, having more free time, more fun collaborative projects with creative cohorts, a vacation with just me and Brian, and much more!
