My inifinitely updatable list of things I would love to do, see or achieve this lifetime!
I’m writing this list to clarify what I choose to do, rather than what I think I should want to do… and posting it here so I’m accountable. Now I’ve said I want to, I actually have to take steps to do them 🙂 I’m also hoping you’ll celebrate with me… what are your big goals? The things you really, truly want to do?
Publish a book! DONE! Twice! Yay! And I’ve had “Your Faery Magic” and “Gods and Goddesses of Wales” published by Moon Books, which ticks off this goal: Update FeyHearted Books and find an external publisher for them Have something philosophical published somewhere official Woohoo! I have A piece on Heidegger due to be published in November 2014 in Girls and Philosophy and another piece in an anthology on somaesthetics. Make money doing what I love When I wrote this I was thinking it’d be a full-time job painting or similar, but technically I’ve succeeded in this one as just this past year (2013-2014) I’ve been paid to tell stories in Iron Age gear, I’ve sold several paintings this year and I got some paid teaching work too! Sing on stage… when I’m ready This one terrified me but I did it once! Then again and again! I’ve sung to an audience with friends, then solo twice, then in a choir again. Think I can definitely cross this one off 🙂 (2012-2013) Build up my core strength so I can hike through forested mountains without pain Got it! Belly Dancing has proven to be the key to this, which I began spring 2013. (And I love it!) Deepen my relationship with the Fae This is such a vague goal but I’m pretty sure I can say I’ve definitely done this. Next up, more deepening! Travel to three Countries in 2014 Spain, Hungary and Holland!
