Word for January: SUPPORT
With this new year before us, all stretched out and pretty, we stand in front of a white canvas free to create. An invitation to play. This moment does not know what came before. It doesn’t even care. We can make anything happen. What do you want to see? Remember, your studio is you.
What will you create for yourself in 2012? I like the idea of one thing at a time. One thing brings focus. One thing can stick in your brain. Choose something. Write it down as if it has already happened. Then put a date on it. For example, “I have completed my book. It’s June 30, 2012.” This is how we shift from dreaming to doing. And this is often where we get stuck. When action is required. Because it takes time. And obstacles show up.
So GET SUPPORT! That’s right. Do something you rarely do. Once you decide what you want and when it will happen by, pick up the phone or send an email to someone you can count on. Someone who’s got your back. Someone who will do all they can to help you accomplish your thing. (They probably have a goal you can help them with.)
Tell them your intention and what you want help with. Work out the details. I’d suggest weekly check-ins. This effort does have the power to create that thing. You’re attaching commitment to it. It can happen this year. When there’s action.
Just “stop it!” You CAN ask for help. You’ve tried this on your own, right? Take just one minute to really get this thing going. You know how fast this year will go.
(A lil support because I love ya!)
