no looking back...

{in a tangle}

Ariadne often finds herself in this predicament as she navigates her way through the labyrinth, she believes that sometimes you have to get yourself into a bit of a tangle before you can sort things out.  

I am feeling this way at the moment as I navigate my way through the first part of the 'hello soul hello business' course it feels a bit like some days are one step forward and two steps back, and then other days are like I am skipping forward three steps at a time and there is no looking back... exciting times.

Ariadne is taking a little time away from everything to think about things.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to take yourself away from everything... to have time alone to really think about things.  This is what I feel like doing at the moment, getting rid of all that background noise so I can listen to what my inner voice is telling me.

{I like it here can I stay...}

We are lucky here in New Zealand, it is pretty hard not to live close to the sea... I thought this as I pulled back my curtains this morning, opened my bedroom window and heard a couple of sea gulls sqwaking down at me.  Although I have a very long 'places to visit' list I am pleased that this is where I call home, this is where I will be coming home to.

thinking things...

This course I am doing is really pushing me to think about all sorts of things... the way I think about things, the way I see things and what I want to do... what I really love doing, what makes me happy and who makes me happy.  I have always believed that you have to make your own happiness, you can't rely on other people to make you happy.  And although I still think this is true, I also think that maybe it is important to surround yourself with people that if you find yourself in a situation where you can no longer find the happiness in yourself they will take over for a bit till you find it again.

Cousin Ivy...

(cousin Ivy has been invited to the Kings party)

Sorry, I have been out of the loop since Christmas... back to work for three weeks getting ready for the students to all arrive and also completely immersed in the Hello Soul, Hello Business sessions with Kelly Rae and Beth.  Completely amazing... really got me thinking about what I am doing, what my creative priorities are and where I want to go with them.  I know I didn't spend nearly enough time creating the sisters last year and it is something I want to do way more of this year.  I have ideas for them that are so much bigger than anything I would have dreamed when the idea of them first popped into my head.

They got us thinking about WHY we are doing what we do... this is something I have never really thought about before, it was always just something I felt the need to do.  So to really dig deep and realise WHY has been immensely valuable.  So this is my why... "because I want to give people something to believe in.  A heroine to identify with, find hope in, to gain strength and courage from" I might need to tweak it as the course goes on but that is basically it.

I have decided that this is going to be my year of knowledge... so I have also signed up for two more e-courses, but will tell you more about them when they start up.
