When I first discovered Andrea's blog, I read through the entire archive of posts and she has had an amazing journey to motherhood and life coaching. I was so excited to find that she is also a life coach, yet not so surprised considering her meaningful writing. I was also excited when she started her Mondo Beyondo e-course with Jen Lemen and I plan on taking their e-course before this year is over. I know that my fellow Creative Kindred Spirit/Future Art Retreat classmate Tinniegirl has taken the course and I have seen it's effect on her in the list of dreams/goals she has set for herself for 2010. I am so excited for "Tinniegirl" and can't wait until we meet in February!
And how did I meet "Tinniegirl"? Because we each signed up for the Artful Journey Retreat taking place next month (WOW! next month!!) to learn some art techniques from one of our art "she-ros", Kelly Rae Roberts, who is a friend to Andrea Scher! It is the coolest thing to see how these internet communities begin and grow, which leads to a recent discovery...
Andrea's post on "Word of the Year", with the link to the worksheets to find your year, was just the ticket for beginning 2010 with a special touchstone to guide me through this exciting year. And that's not the only thing I discovered in this post. While reading through the comments of the words that bloggers/artists are uncovering for themselves this year, I discovered a VERY new blogger, Kat of "I Saw You Dancing". I just loved the blog name (being a dancer!) and the poem the title sprang from, by Hafiz, is really lovely. I also loved the fact that this young woman made a brave choice to honor her creativity and love of her family and start a blog that will chronicle her journey as she begins to honor what matters most to her.
How do you plan to honor what matters to you in 2010? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
