I’ve been thinking of writing a recap blog of 2014 but have not been hit with the inspiration or memory to do it to my satisfaction. Today, as I was putting the dishes away it dawned on me that I wanted 2015 to be my year of intention. By that, I mean I want to live on purpose. I want to do things on purpose. I don’t want to just be or just let things happen to me.
A lot of things have inspired me to pursue this. Top of mind was an Instagram post from Amy Chan that I saw. Amy has been someone I have admired online for quite a while. I have even had the opportunity to meet her in person! She is real. She is ambitious. She is kind. I love everything about her.

Excerpt from my new article: "The 10 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself in 2015" Full piece on www.JustMyType.ca Will you accept mediocrity or strive for greatness? It takes courage to go after what you want, to give your heart fully, to live passionately and dust yourself off after each set back. But I would rather fall a thousand times in my attempt to achieve greatness than to walk unscathed on the road of mediocrity. Nothing great in life has been the result of minimal effort and mediocre company. Raise your bar.
This post resonated with me because I feel as though I am constantly seeking. But I consciously want to strive for greatness and excellence in my pursuits.
A second thing that has spurred this round of inspiration is have read through the Desire Map in it’s entirety. I am currently working on the workbook to figure exactly how I want to feel. But as I work through this, I am carrying myself with my feelings in mind. How do I want to feel when I am doing something? This is very close to the top of my mind. Danielle LaPorte is also an awesome lady that I’ve followed online for a while. I’ve had the opportunity to hear her speak. Her words are true and I’m often hit with “hmm” moments when she posts her #truthbombs.
I love that these two powerful ladies are from Vancouver. I’ve met both of them in this beautiful city but first became aware of their presences through Twitter.
Short and sweet posts, seem to be where I am most comfortable. I haven’t gotten around to clarifying my goals for this year yet. But I will be sure to update my goal page here when I do, and hopefully will have more to say in a full blog post.
