The secret life of Me breathes in the wind and holds all things together soulfully. -Hildegard of Bingen

Quarter moons offer us a celestial visual of progression — the first quartet moon waxing — illumination increasing.

I envision my annual progress in quarters — 3-months at a time (January-March, April-June, etc.)

Here is a breakdown of how I see my quarters:

  • Month 1 — trial and error; enchanted wanderings in search of something and/or nothing … simply space to be.
  • Month 2 — research and experiments; collaboration and trial runs to “flesh out” my ideas and projects; compiling my hopscotch chronicles.
  • Month 3 — fruition! 🙂 implementing new habits and setting my next course.

Remember: You make your own rules, Braveheart.

  • You are the expert when it comes to what you want.
  • You decide when to begin and when to stop.
  • Everything takes longer than we expect.

Resist the urge to allow your lack of measurable progress to deter you from continuing.

  • There is time and space for your dreams, Braveheart. There is no “catching up” or “being behind” … you are precisely where you are supposed to be.

In the quietness of sitting with our obstacles, there are “secret messages” regarding that which makes us come alive — what our passions are and how that will need to be intertwined with our actions — empowering us to determine our course.

Wandering times reveal our priorities and pitfalls — enabling us to set our intentions to move more definitely in the direction of the necessary changes and adaptations.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. -Maria Robinson

Braveheart, I believe art heals — and that art is as simple as abiding outdoors with the morning sky or jotting lists or having a favorite color. I created Right Brain Planner® because I needed a "planner" that offered space but didn't trigger my daily expectations. I needed a planner that was a journal — a place to creatively document my {living} + collect my blurts and random collage. Perhaps you are in need of the same? If so, I hope you will join me via our shared online connections. ♥
