Wondering why I started this blog? As a multi-passionate creative, I used to be plagued by the idea that success meant choosing one thing and sticking with it. The problem was choosing just “one thing” left me unable to show up in the world as my most authentic, full self. One day I woke up and decided to finally embrace and share all of my gifts. My next thought: I should start a blog as a space for my passions to play. Needless to say, I never looked back. 

psst. over here.

This month, though, I’m not setting goals. Why? Because setting goals in January feels a lot like making New Year’s resolutions, and I don’t believe in those. Find out what I’m doing instead of setting goals this month and how you can join me!

Chances are you’re already thinking about popping champagne on New Year’s Eve and all the goals you want to achieve in 2019. However, if you don’t take the time to reflect and release the energy of 2018, you won’t get that “clean slate” feeling that we all seek as a new year approaches.

Today is my 30th birthday. I may not be on the Forbes 30 under 30 list, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t celebrate everything I’ve accomplished up to this point.

I started posting my goals here on the blog back in August, and now it’s hard to imagine not sharing them with you. Thank you for taking the time to read, and for holding me accountable to the intentions that I’ve set. Here’s what I’m focusing on for December.

When I think of community, I think of safety, comfort, encouragement, and showing up consistently to connect. How could I create that, not just for myself, but for all the people who were waking up to the fact that they too are multi-passionate creatives? It’s not enough to write about starting a tribe, or wishing for one and hoping it will manifest. I knew I had to take action and make it happen.

I always look forward to the start of a new month because I can take a moment to look inward and set new goals. Come see what I’m focusing on for November.

If our culture is all about embracing diversity than why does being multi-passionate still make our society so uncomfortable? Why are we plagued by the phrase, “Jack of all trades, master of none?”   There has to be a more inclusive outlook.

A basket wall display is a great way to add warmth, texture, and bohemian vibes to your space, and it’s super easy to do. This post is a step by step guide for creating a DIY hanging basket wall.

The beginning of the month is when I take a moment to get quiet and set new goals. Sharing my goals here on my blog increases public accountability, and I hope to see an improvement in my follow through as a result. I can’t wait to share what my October goals with you.

I challenge you to say these affirmations out loud to yourself for the next several days, and see if you notice a boost in your creative confidence.

Sharing my monthly goals with my blog readers keeps me accountable and increases the likelihood of me following through. Check out this post to see what I’m focusing on this month.
