Musings: A Toast to 2012
December 31, 2011

Dear Readers;

As this year comes to a close I’m sharing with you all an absolutely delightful piece I received the other day from trend mistress Robyn Waters, with whom I’ve had the pleasure of collaboration.

Tip: This works best with glass in hand, standing up, speaking up, and grooving to the rhythm!

A Toast to 2012

To standing out

To fitting in

To going out

To staying in

To working out

To getting thin

To speaking out

To going within

To looking out

To jumping in

To toughing it out

To giving in

To figuring it out

To going on a whim

To doing without

To playing to win

To letting it all out

To taking it all in

To not selling out

To believing in

To living out loud

To beginning again.

 

To Friends,

Wishing you an Outrageously Inspiring New Year!!

Laurie

 

Thanks Robyn!

Musings: Letting Go to Receive the New
December 11, 2011

It’s that time of the year to reflect on what has transpired. The “good, the bad, the ugly,” so to speak. No seriously, it’s all good if we take the hard stuff as learning from which to move forward and re-create.

I’ve started my end of year reflections; am enormously grateful for my life, love, family and opportunity to continue to grow creatively and expand my work. I’m amazed at the joy and energy I experienced in wiritng my book, Stir It Up! Recipes for Robust Insights & Red Hot Ideas, and the very positive responses I have received from readers. I hope the book has a long life and provides value for many.

And I’m noticing habits, attitudes and things that clutter and get in the way of moving forward. The literal clutter like an office full of stuff waiting to be filed because of the busy-ness of this amazing year. And the mind clutter.

I’m vowing to spruce it up; one step, one day at a time!
