It’s Thursday, so I’m Crafting my Life! If you’d like to craft your life, too, and find a greater sense of purpose, check out the Crafting my Life Playbook. If you’d like to share a post about your own Crafting my Life journey, drop me a line.
Last week, I shared my quest to find a word for 2012. I had a really hard time, and I went through many words. But then, in a moment of serendipity, I heard the word, and I knew. My word for 2012? Clarity. I want clarity. I want clarity about who I am, what I’m doing and why.
There are some things in my life that I feel very clear about, like my choice of husband. Because I have clarity around my partner, I’m not investing a bunch of energy into that area of my life. I’m not posting my profile to online dating sites, spending time at places where I’m likely to meet a man or agonizing over how best to approach that guy who’s caught my eye. Any of the time that I would spend doing that is now free to spend elsewhere. In the same way, my hope is that if I get some greater clarity around my life’s direction that I’ll have more energy free to focus on the stuff that actually makes a difference.
It’s a theory.
Step one of my search for greater clarity is to come up with a plan for Crafting my Life. Here’s the thing – I love Crafting my Life. I’ve had a great time running the online classes, and writing the Crafting my Life Playbook. I love helping people figure out what they’re meant to do, and make progress towards their goals. It energizes and inspires me in a way that few other things do. Because you know what? People really are amazing, and they have some really great dreams. Being able share in them is an amazing privilege.
In spite of my enthusiasm, up until now I’ve just kind of floated along with Crafting my Life, sending out the occasional newsletter to my mail list, or posting a link on Twitter and Facebook. One of the things that has become clear to me (and, as you know, I’m all about clarity), is that I need to practice what I preach a little bit more, and use my voice. If I believe (and I do) that my work is meaningful, and helpful, and useful, then I should share that. But I can’t do it alone.
I’m looking for people to help me spread the Crafting my Life message. I believe that great things happen when people work together, so I’m asking if you’d like to work together. I have a few ideas for how this could work.
- I’d be happy to write a guest post for your blog about living with greater intention.
- I’m looking for a few bloggers to review the Crafting my Life Playbook.
- I’m always eager to accept guest posts for Strocel.com about your own journey to live with greater purpose and authenticity.
If any of these sound like your thing, send me an email at amber [at] strocel [dot] com, or fill out this handy-dandy form:
If this isn’t your thing, that’s okay, too. We don’t have to share every interest in common to be friends, right?
Now, tell me – do you have a word for 2012? And how do you bring greater clarity into your own life? I’d love to hear!
My apologies, the original form wasn’t working. I’ve updated the post, though, and this one should function. Isn’t technology fun?
