2013 Intentions

I love taking time each New Year to look back at the past year and look ahead to the next, setting intentions for how I want to be and what I hope to experience in the year.

My theme for 2013 is more art and heart, with these three guiding words:

Make more art. Have heart-full adventures. Love more.

Here are some possible ways this might come to life…

Make more art:

  • Grow my independent consulting work designing and facilitating conversations for a better future
  • Keep on blogging
  • Look for ways to expand my circle hosting practice
  • Buy less stuff (less stuff = more financial freedom to make art)


Have heart-full adventures:

  • Mom and sister’s trip to Washington DC
  • Travel to Croatia with Caitlin for her Byron Katie workshop
  • Go outside more (including snowshoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding)
  • Read more fiction

gooutsideLove more:

  • Write monthly love letters to be dropped anonymously in my travels ala
  • Monthly date nights with Nat
  • Write a letter to my parents telling them how much they mean to me
  • Do three sun salutations every day (on top of regular yoga classes)
  • Cook more (strategy already in place at my onthegosupperrecipes site)
  •  Get enough sleep
