Can you believe that we are half way through 2017? It is crazy how time is flying by so fast! I think it is a good time to take a look at how things are going and revamp some things.
It is funny how everyone makes goals and plans in January just to abandon them a couple (or few) months later. But, the thing is, every day is a chance for a new beginning – and so is every month or quarter. So let me encourage you: If you have made plans or goals in January that haven’t planned out, take a little time to create new ones or to tweak the old ones.
For me, this year is not panning out like I had planned at all. In some ways, I feel really behind but in other ways I feel like I am growing and evolving, which is a good thing!
My word for 2017 is courage. I thought that meant doing certain things for growing my business but it has turned out to be more personal. It was a tough school year for my son, especially academically, and we had to navigate and adjust to the challenge. It wasn’t easy but we got through it! On top of that, Andrew had a lot of activities and events – as well as other events in our family – which forced me out of my introverted self a lot of the time.
Business wise, it has been interesting too. I haven’t spent much time here on the blog like I had expected, but at the same time, I have been growing my personal blog in ways I didn’t expect. I started a coaching mentoring program and am beginning to offer personal life coaching! This is definitely out of my comfort zone but also rewarding. It has been on my heart for a long time and so I will follow the prompting for as long as it leads.
What does that mean for carolda.com? Not much. Writing is in my blood and so is proofreading and editing so I will continue with those! I can’t imagine giving up this part of my life. And, since I have the space to continue with these endeavors, I will. 🙂
I would love to hear from you. Is 2017 shaping up the way you expect? Is it better than you expected or have you been thrown a curve ball or two? How will you tweak the rest of the year to make it what you want it to be?
