Today, I will take you through some sure fire methods to set you up for your week with a fresh start and a New Years kind of feel!

Due multiple profound family losses this past few months, I have been making a strong effort to focus on and talk with you about acceptance and appreciation. You can read last weeks, “Creative Self Empowerment Solutions to Appreciating Life” blog post here.

With that focus in mind, let's move forward to planning the new week with a fresh clear start and a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to what you can create and achieve!

Have fun with this one and come back and let me know how it went. While it's great to do this for personal as well as business – today our focus is on business for Creative Entrepreneurs. Here is my exact process for setting up. I do this full process anytime I need a fresh start and feel the need for a clean slate, and I do some version of it each and every week to plan for success, to re-align and to be focused on what is most important to achieve.

Play Music:

Music is one of my favorite gifts in the world. Play music, whatever you are in the mood for. It will help you FEEL what is inside. It will help you connect to the emotion of what it is your body and spirit want you to know. You can't pick the wrong thing. Just pick some music and let it fill your space for you.

Get Into Your Body:

How you approach this may change day to day. Some days this will mean actually MOVING your body, dancing, working out, walking, jumping around silly, to get your juices flowing. Other days, you may need to close your eyes, sit still and ask your body what it needs for you to know, listen to what it would like for you to process, and let it flow gently and freely. There is no wrong or right way here. Just follow the lead – your body will tell you what to do.

Pen to Paper:

Part 1: Old school it – Pen in hand, blank sheet under your nose, WAIT. Wait. wait. you many have to wait and you may feel great resistance. Just wait. Then, once you are moved. write, write, write. Fee journal and let it all out.

Part 2: Take Stock of all you accomplished last week. Take inventory on what worked and what didn't, list out all and give yourself credit for all you did last week. Can you believe what a Wonder Women you were?  

There is no right or wrong way to write. Just put the pen to paper and let it flow out.

Inspired Priority:

From your list circle items you accomplished that lit you up inside. Circle the ones you are most proud of. Then, highlight the top three. Use THESE to begin your plan for the following week. We all have the to-do tasks that are mundane and required for everyday living. But, THIS list is the one that your heart will determine for you. When we prioritize based on what inspires us, the path becomes more clear and and easier to follow. When finding inspiration – guess what – there is no wrong way, your way is THE way, the best way, the only way.

Clear Space for the New:

Clean up and clear out any old paper work or lingering tasks from last week that can distract you or get in the way of your focus. Declutter your desks, clean out your pen jar, set up your workspace, in an effort to allow the energy to flow freely with little distractions. Uniquely you, create your space in a way that makes you feel joy. Of course, you can't get it wrong, it's to your design.

Did you notice a common thread here? Did you see that no matter HOW you do this, is the right way to do it? Give yourself permission to make the time and space to nurture your mind-body-spirit and simply let the rest flow. You deserve that time to yourself.

Creative Self Empowerment Solutions to Appreciating Life

Creative Self Empowerment Solutions to Appreciating Life

Life knocked on my door in unwelcome ways a few times recently which has left me feeling like I needed to figure out some Creative Self Empowerment Solutions to Appreciating Life. I've been thinking about that old saying, you know the one, “when life gives you lemons…”

Sometimes there is a surplus (not such a good one) — just too many lemons — and there is a need for another recipe, to sweeten it up, to make more than just lemonade.

You have to rally, dig deep, and find creative self empowerment solutions to appreciating life. The need arises to find other solutions and ways to generate a new (more desired) result to the way you feel.

I’ve had to do this in my personal life a lot lately with these compounded losses in my family this year. Those lemons were big, and coming way too fast.

Several years ago, the last time I was knocked over by a ton of lemons, I turned away from my lifelong go-to healing tools and I ended up sad and isolating myself – foreign invaders I had never know before.

This time around, I knew I couldn't let that happen. In an effort to create new pathways for these emotions to process I turned to the things that have been my friends in the past. With conscious and consistent effort I dove back into these activities, everyday – my journaling, gentle moving, weight training, and music, – lots and lots of music.

As I write, I find answers hidden deep within my soul to questions I didn’t realize I had, as I heal through movement, music, and reflection, I become more and more inspired to guide, lead and step into my truest calling.

For creative entrepreneurs, these lessons crossover into business and entrepreneurial practices.

Cultivating your calling and fine tuning your message is an ongoing endeavor. A labor of love. A Creative journey on a windy path of exploration.

So, here’s what I got for ya, Creative Self Empowerment Solutions to Appreciating Life

and how to feel better, stronger and empowered when life it tossing too many lemons your way:

Support. Support. Support.:
Find, build, create, and then hold on tight to your support system, a mix of friends family that will hold you up, let you cry, listen to you vent and set you straight when you need to hear the truth you are not telling to yourself.

My support system; my family and dear friends make one beautiful quilt of unwavering support. We show up, we give, we share and we heal together, time after time.
 
Allow Yourself to Be Where You Are:
Honor time alone, solitude, reflection, be where you are in the moment. It may be challenging to carve out alone time, but it will be well worth it.
Acceptance: 
Yikes, that's a tough one, right? I admit, this one may take a little extra effort, but I highly recommend making accepting your circumstances a priority. In my experience, when the focus is on acceptance, a new space is opened up for appreciation, and that is where the real stuff lies.
Appreciation:
Gratitude, appreciation, gratefulness, being thankful, these are all creative ways we find to make those lemons sweet, to use them up with a little sugar. Taking stock in who you love, who loves you, remembering your basic necessities which are so often overlooked, considering that support system we spoke of earlier, and the list continues…

New Year's wish

A cup of herbal tea and a New Year’s Wish

Would you like to join me for a cup of herbal tea and a New Year's Wish?

I am seeing a common thread among the women I work with and it’s no big surprise. So, I’m here to offer as a calming moment, like a cup of herbal tea, a New Year's wish, to help you release the old and bring in the new, grounded, calm enthusiasm or the new year.

The pressure to enjoy the holiday with family while you simultaneously get prepped for the new year AND…

  • plan out your marketing strategy
  • be clear on your goals
  • decide what you will offer
  • determine how you will show up for your audience…

Whew! It can all be completely overwhelming,

Have you felt it? The Holiday family time and your business goals mounting?

I sure did and in this past week there was little to no time for

  • journaling
  • planning
  • client work or
  • Putting the final touches on all that I want to create and manifest for the new year.

I had with it the emotions of having the first Christmas without my mom. It's a deep and moving process this level of grief.

It all generated a perfect storm, an intense sense of urgency on life.

So much so, that I had what am calling my year-end melt down a few days ago.
I was in the midst of holiday travel, seeing family from both sides, driving long distances in traffic, feeling the emotions of the holiday, navigating the grief, living out of suite case, sleeping in strange environments (no matter how lovely the hotels may have been). I met my threshold.

It was the point where my mind and body came together and said, Enough.

The tears just flowed. I let my body go limp and my limbs relax, let the wave wash over me and allowed it to take with it all the pressure mounting over me. Click To Tweet

The tears just flowed. I let my body go limp and my limbs relax, let the wave wash over me and allowed it to take with it all the pressure mounting over me.

One good thing about meltdowns is that they clear out a bunch of crap.

They help crystallize the view.

They bring the priority to the surface.

All the pressures washed away. The pressure to be something someone else expects, pressure to say things a particular way, pressure to be ‘on' and happy.

The wave let it all go.

Gently, cleansing as it all washed away.

And, I felt better. Refreshed, relieved, clear.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve, and I invite you to let make the transition gentle.

  • Is there something you can release so that you can come into the new year with calm, peace of mind and a centered heart?
  • What can you leave behind in a GENTLE manner rather than adding pressure?
  • What feels to you like a cup of herbal tea and a New Year's wish?

A NEW YEAR'S Wish

My New Year's Wish for you is that you go into the new year with gentle self-guidance, self-sconfidence, self-trust, and hope. That you experience joy, laughter, and prosperity. 

Happy New Year!

A High Vibe Pick Me Up!

An easy and fun way to shift into High Vibe when you are feeling low energy

I literally did this for myself this weekend when I needed to feel a high vibe and pick myself up. When your energy is low and you can't seem to get your head in the game or you feel lethargic and out of focus, you may just need a quick and easy pick me up to shift to a high vibe and get re-engerized.
 
First of all, it was a rainy day, on top of that the end of the year has me all in an urgency tizzy and navigating the holidays after recent loss of my mom has created a need to apply extra mindful focus and conscious shifting. Ugh – life is so tender these days.
So, to get into a higher state and increase my energy and get into a high vibe, I grabbed one of my go-to's from my toolbox and It worked. It always works. I wanted you have have it for your toolbox of inspiration, too.
 
Seems like whenever you are feeling low you can get stuck in a downward spiral effect that happens when the your low energy effects everything else you need to do.

It is totally normal to not want to move or do anything and it's hard to get motivated when we are in a lower energy. So, here is a high vibe mind-body activity you can do right now.  (Oh I sure now how crying in bed and watching tv is so much more attractive when we feel low – isn't it?)… But, there is a very simple way to raise into a high vibe.

The trick is… that your solution has to be: 

  • SUPER SWEET
  • EASY TO DO
  • IMMEDIATE
  • QUICK QUICK QUICK!

Here's how you can get RAISE INTO A HIGH VIBE,
shift your energy and FEEL Better Instantly.

Give it a try now:

Muster up one positive thought.

Just one – even a little tiny one, something you believe in. Bonus points for writing it on a sticky and putting where you'll see it.

MOVE for the shift.

Do some silly dance, shake your stuff, jump around the room, do hip circles, do some arm sways…What ever movement you choose is a-okay.

Most of all  – IMPORTANT piece:

Say your statement WHILE you are dancing, moving, swaying.

Voila!

Watch what happens. Allow it to evolve and your energy raise. Notice as the statement shifts and grows how the movement becomes the director of the sequence. Witness how your words become your very own song. FEEL into the shifts, the laughter, the tears, the questions, what ever flows. Then, let anything you don't need pass. Find the high vibe and feel into it. 
 
Probably, at the very least raise your level so you feel better and even more likely, you will feel and become enthusiastic, happy, joyful, with a much higher vibration to go be inspired to CREATE. BUILD.SHARE.™
Remember,

Do You Need A Blog

Don't You Need A Blog? – Website Done Today Series

Hi, I’m Patty Rose. I have a question that I get asked all the time by my clients when I’m helping them get their websites for their businesses up and running and it goes like this.

Do I really have to have a blog? I don’t want a blog. I’m not a writer. I don’t want to do video. I don’t how to blog. I’m not a blogger.

My answer is to Do you need a blog is – Yes, you must have a blog and here’s why.

Blogs are what give your static website life and this is only if you have your blog in the same location as your website, which is the only time I say yes, it’s a must. So using certain platforms, like the ones that I recommend, you can have your blog in the same place as what used to be a static website.

Where everything on your home page, about page and sales page pretty much stays steady, your blog page has new, fresh, content coming to it every day. But for the question ‘do you have to have a blog’, my answer is yes. I want you to set up your website with a blog attached. There are platforms that allow this and the next few videos will get into a little bit more of the why and the how to do that.

So come on over to WebsiteDoneToday.com. This is Patty Rose and I’ll see you over there.

To Your Inspired Success!
