The final days of June have arrived. I have a big note in the planner to do a quarterly review, take stock of things and see where I am heading for the next few months. The quarterly review also lands on the six
My word of this year is founded. I wrote about that way back here. So, how have I done in the first part of the year? The main things I listed for the year
- I am here and ready
- doing the best in my vocation
- growing in my creativity
- getting out and about
- building friendships and deepening relationships
I am moving along quite nicely in all of these, from working to creating to socialising. A few things to pick out:
Patreon has been relaunched, so I am once again sharing my music. Which means I am making music again! I have been decluttering and clearing out to make space. It is about physical space but also mental space. I’ve been dropping potential projects and things that don’t ‘bring joy’ – it is so much easier to create when I reduce the background chatter.
I am travelling locally, but need to go further afield. I did manage one trip up north, but that doesn’t really make me Earnest Shackleton. I have the means to get out, so only a need to motivate myself. This is always a danger primarily working from home and being freelance… along with having an introvert nature. But I am trying to get involved with a little more. I have some wonderful friends and I am making more.
In general I feel that I am founded, fallow fields are now beginning to sprout, and I know myself a little better.
As I enter the second half of the year…
I have a few big questions that are floating around. I don’t think I want answers to them yet. Perhaps the questions themselves are not yet fully formed. A lack of an
Having said that, I did wake up in the very early morning hours with thoughts jostling for space around those ‘big’ questions. Perhaps I do need to give them more thought, or perhaps it was just the hot and humid weather outside that woke me up. Only time will tell, and ultimately only time will reveal the questions and answers.
I am frustrated with how slow some things are moving. I want things to happen. I want certain goals met now! The challenge is to turn the frustration into motivation and keep working toward my goals. I am not naive enough to believe things will happen on their own, but it would be nice to have a little help from fortune or luck or magic etc.
Now it is time to get going on the work for the next six months. It is time for founded part two.
