What Are My Actionable Steps?

28 Mar

Incredible Sunset In Mexico 2013

A blogger friend of mine, Zachary of Quick Me Ups, recently posted an article that really spoke to me. It was called Dream Big then Make it Happen.  He spoke about a common problem that I had been contemplating for some time.  The problem of living life without following your dreams.  As I have been following my dreams in the entrepreneurial world, I would insert creative passion.

“Today’s message is to allow yourself to Dream, and then to take actionable steps to achieve this dream.” -Zachary Reid

This resonated with me. It is so easy as a working mom to get caught up in the daily grind. Take for example, I love to cook. It is my main creative outlet these days. But I have been so busy starting an online business to support our income needs that I have not cooked for at least a week. Now don”t worry! I am eating great meals. My husband is an awesome chef. The kids and I are not lacking in that area. But I do notice a difference in my outlook when I am not being creative on a daily basis.

Another area I would like to be more creative is with physical, artistic endeavors. I miss sewing, painting, more serious photography, sculpture, and making music. Before becoming a Business Manager, Wife, and Mother I spent most of my free time doing these things. I do not regret who I am now or the things that take my time. I love spending my after work time with my children. I also love that my work time for The MNV Journey involves taking my children into parks and wildlife refuges! It is amazing and I get to spend lots of time with the boys. I wouldn’t change that!

But I have made a decision to get more creative in 2015. What are my actionable steps? I have committed to carving out time for me. Just a few minutes here and there, hopefully daily.That is why I am excited to sign up for a FREE Creativity E-Course. It is taking me through four easy steps to become more creative in 2015. I just got the first e-mail and it had some thought provoking questions. I am looking forward to the next lesson. If you”re interested in getting this FREE course, then click this affiliate link.

It is a free course, but I will receive credit as the person who sent you to the course. If you decide to buy any products I will get a small kickback. Enough to keep me in tea for my late night blogging. Hey,that is one area where I have stayed creative! I do still write and ghostwrite some really neat articles. I love to write and my blogs are a fun way to be creative. You can check out my other blog here. I am also starting a sister blog to this one. It will be up soon and I will share the link then.

Oh yeah, if you are already a creative type and like to buy DIY books, there is an Ultimate-Bundle of DIY e-books coming out in a few days.  It will be on sale for three days only! I really want to get this bundle because of seven specific titles that I will share in another post.  But the bundle has over 69 books and some really cool bonus gifts, like a free class from Craftsy!  Check out the affiliate link below for more information.
