In November, Maps to Herself turned one! While I may not have written many posts over that time, each one came along when it was ready to and holds a special meaning for me. I adore how organically the blog has grown, the people it’s reached and inspired, and it will continue to be a peaceful and encouraging place for me. A beautiful space that I know will always be there when I need it.
As I look back on the past year, often I feel like a lot has changed, but on the inside I feel like it hasn’t so much as I’ve just gone a little deeper. I’ve seen changes to my environment, how I spend my time, friendships, adventures, and all really positive events, but I do also feel like I am the same. That I am just how I am supposed to be and who I always was. To others I may be showing different parts of myself, but my inner world, where most of all our attention lies, is a familiar place. I haven’t felt the desire to change or transform to something better, or different. I think I am more accepting of who I am without so much of the self-criticism, and I hope to continue to feel the underlying sense that I am on the right path.
We are now in our final few weeks of 2014, and as the last couple of months have been so focused on current projects, I haven’t really started thinking and planning the new year yet. I do love leaving some things open to what the universe has in stall for me, but I also know there are important things I’d like to do in 2015. There’s lots of amazing resources around to help plan your best year yet, I’d love to share one of my favourites, the Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz workbook, I’m eagerly awaiting for my print copy to arrive! Another great tool is Susannah Conway’s Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook, available as a free download, I think you’ll love this year’s design!
Thank you for sharing this space with me over the past year, I’d love to hear what’s happening in your own spiritual or artistic journey, and what you’d love to achieve in the new year.
P.S. If you love these two artworks, I am giving away the original artworks as part of the prize draw when pre-ordering your pair of Darling Legs, along with some other awesome goodies! The standout favourite ‘A Place Yet to Explore’ has reached 41% funding! I’d love to put our efforts towards this amazing design and turn this artwork into a limited-edition piece of wearable art for your street, yoga or travel wardrobe!
