12 Intentions for 2012
If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. (Joseph Campbell)
This fall, I will be celebrating my blog's 3-year anniversary. Three years of showing up, sharing inspiration and connecting with more creative souls than I ever imagined possible.
The keys to a happy blogger? Make a plan, set realistic expectations, write as often as you can, and believe in a little magic. Then wait to see what happens next.
My intentions for this year and KaileenElise.com are one in the same. I plan to focus my energy on living a healthy, active life. I want to blog regularly, but without the pressure and pace of posting daily. I have a content map, plus a long-term strategy and short-term goals. I'm giddy about what's next—eager to curate links, quotes and images that will inspire you.
I'm quite fond of outlines, lists and game plans. Knowing this, I identified 12 intentions for 2012. Guideposts for this journey, touchstones threaded through each month. Overall, this year is about focus and heart...with a touch of sparkle!
Hat tip to Lifestylista Monica McCarthy for the wonderful idea of compiling a vision board of sorts for 2012 intentions. I love how mine turned out. It's going straight to my desktop—and I plan to create mini versions for my iPhone each month.
Have you done something like this for your blog? I've never sat down and thought an entire year through like this, so I'd love to know more about your experience!
