The month of January is over. The first month of 2013. The month
where you are supposed to get off your ass and start over, a clean slate. The month
where you will file all your receipts so the tax filing in 2014 will not be as
hellacious as in 2013, 2012, 2011…….
In the past, for me, it has been THE month of pressure.
Usually, by end of January I am always just as chaotic as I was at the end of
December. As I am this year.
I do have an excuse. Remember, I burned my foot on a heating
pad? (If you don’t, I did.) My “little” burn turns out to be a second degree
burn that I am still dealing with, and I have worn the same pair of shoes since
December 31st. It is in such a weird, strategic spot that it has
seriously hindered my life style.
I have come to the conclusion that this freak accident was a
sign. A few weeks ago, someone (one of many) asked me about my resolutions. I
said “I have decided to throw any resolutions in the wind and wing it. January
is screwed anyways”. And with that, I was free.
Free to take my goals for 2013, and start slowly. Free to
sit in the café with my tribe TODAY and talk over my marketing strategies &
business goals for the year, feeling that they are more heart centered, than pressured.
Free to tell people “I am working on it.”, and to be good with that.
Sometimes, it is good to let things lie and “ferment”,
ending up with a finished product that is much more wholesome than the fresh
When I go home, I
went into my pantry. There were the 6 heads of cabbage that I bought weeks ago
with the ambition of making sauerkraut. They have been moved several
times, rolled behind the laundry, screamed for attention. Yet, I ignored
them. But today, the day I was actually going to cut them up for the chickens
and the compost, they surprised me with this:
All cabbages have little sprouts of what looks like cabbage
babies! I have never seen this before. I see this as a sign of the Universe.
“Heike, it is wonderful that you have let these lie, they
are now creating new life, doubling & tripling themselves!”
I am sticking to it. Putting them in the garden to see what
happens. The same goes for my goals for 2013. I started today to putting what
is in my heart & brain on paper so it can expand into the world.
Better to do IT late
than not at all. The Universe says so!
I have said it
before, and will say it again. If you need a fabulous
