After the previous 3 years of Covid impacting my life closely I’ve felt a bit like I’ve been in a holding sample, significantly this final 12 months, as issues have gotten again to the “new regular” however actually, life continues to be totally different and can be for at the very least one other 12 months or in order this virus retains mutating.
After pondering a while on what my focus phrase for 2023 can be and studying loads of lists of prospects and enjoying with a pair, the one which jumped out at me, that felt aligned and spoke of what I’d been enthusiastic about is the phrase CULTIVATE.
Domesticate By way of My Work…
Domesticate New Concepts
New concepts and methods of doing issues is one thing I like to spend time enthusiastic about and cultivating. I’ve had a couple of new concepts and can be launching my Degree Up in Fashion program in early 2023 in addition to creating a few new masterclasses and mini-courses which might be at the moment in percolation section.
When individuals ask me the place I get my concepts from, it’s actually about holding my eyes and ears open to every thing, to studying broadly, to taking on-line programs, to listening to podcasts that stimulate me to consider a spread of matters, some which can not at first appear associated to type, however will be utilized to it ultimately or different.
Domesticate My Program Members
I really like serving to my purchasers and program members develop, taking their type (and hopefully life) to a greater degree, one which helps them get what they need out of life. I really like creating connections with them and attending to know them and their lives. Understanding individuals helps me to be a greater picture marketing consultant and with out that connection, it’s onerous to provide the most effective recommendation as there is no such thing as a one method to be fashionable.
Domesticate My Picture Advisor College students and Graduates

Together with creating complete picture and color applications for private stylists and picture consultants, I wish to spend extra time mentoring individuals in my business who’re as passionate as me in order that they can also fulfill their potential.
Domesticate On a Private Degree…
I’ve spent a while just lately after hardly seeing anybody exterior of my household for a lot of the final 3 years (and even then barely seeing anybody however my husband and youngsters) I’ve actually felt like I must create extra connections and domesticate friendships because it’s tremendous straightforward for me, an introvert who’s pleased to spend an inordinate period of time on my own inside my very own head, to neglect to ever prepare to see mates or develop new friendships and connections.
Domesticate Household Relationships
It’s at all times necessary (in my e-book) to maintain on working in your shut relationships. My youngsters are virtually grown and I’ve restricted “every day” time left with them as I’m certain some can be transferring out of house within the subsequent few years. So I like to spend time cultivating my relationships with them and their companions.
My Dad has been identified with Alzheimer’s, and he and my Mum dwell an 8 hour drive away from me, and over the previous few years due to Covid and my mother and father being aged and never desirous to get sick, I’ve solely seen them a few instances. Given my Dad’s state of well being and how briskly his reminiscence has began deteriorating up to now 12 months, it’s necessary that I spend extra time with them whereas he nonetheless remembers who I’m.
And naturally, I wish to proceed to spend high quality time with my husband and domesticate our relationship.
Domesticate My Well being and Health
This 12 months I managed to shift the Covid Kilos that I’d gained the earlier 2 years and have gotten heaps stronger once more as I’ve found the type of train that actually works for me and my physique at this stage in my life. Pre-covid (and the invention of arthritis in my decrease again), I used to be doing extra HIIT and high-impact coaching, however that now not felt proper and my again was sore on a regular basis. It didn’t really feel prefer it was in concord with my physique. Fortuitously, a pilates and yoga studio moved into my neighbourhood and I’ve been doing reformer pilates and yin yoga for over a 12 months and I actually really feel so a lot better for it. I’ve grow to be heaps stronger and yin yoga is the most effective type of train for switching off my overactive mind (plus giving me the stretch-out that my physique wants).
I’ve given up sugar too this previous 12 months (aside from Christmas dessert, which is a once-a-year deal with) and I really feel means much less hungry as my blood sugar is far more secure. So I’ll proceed to domesticate my well being and health in 2023.
Domesticate My Inventive Shops
A method for me to change off my mind is to do some form of “artwork remedy” and that for me has been portray (this 12 months I began to learn to do watercolour portray) and I’ve actually began to get again into stitching garments once more. I’m having fun with the method in addition to the outcomes and can proceed on with this and preserve cultivating my abilities and can be looking out for a course right here and there to study one thing new as effectively.
And I could even get into my backyard a bit of extra and do some cultivating there too!
