☆ Do Tomorrow Differently [Sharing from the LilliBean Designs Love Letter]

Once a month I send out the lovely members of my mailing list a short newsletter, where I share what's going on my head at the moment, a free downloadable calendar featuring my art + announce the winner of that months give away. This is a short snippet from Novembers newsletter that I thought would be relevant to some of you...

If you are interested in reading more of my studio snippets, join me here, and with in 24 hours of joining you will receive your free downloadable gratitude angel! If you know some one who may enjoy reading this, feel free to share it using the social media links at the top + bottom of this post. x

Happy November! 

It's about this time of year that I start reflecting; thinking over the days, weeks, months of 2014. And I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what's worked, what I loved + what I hated and when I felt blah.

        For example the morning school routine drives me freaking nuts. Seriously
        pulling my hair, screeching bon

         I hate it.

         I. HATE. IT.  (like seriously)

         Because it brings out the worst in me.

         Because it is the same shit just on a different day.

        Because despite being proactive and trying different things to ease the trauma,
        by the time I have walked home from the bus stop, I am a sweaty seething mess.

Anyway, with all this reflection + wondering, I realised that next year I will be turning forty. The BIG 4.0.


And I used to think, when I was wise + worldly twenty-one year old that forty was like sooooo old.

However before you start emailing me that life is awesome after 40, let me tell you I couldn't agree more. I can’t wait to start the next 40 years, move into the next phase of my life. (Although thinking about it, I would happily skip the menopause years thank you very much!)

BUT what I don’t want to do is spend the next 40 years dragging the same tattered + out dated baggage behind me. I have had enough of it and it doesn’t really suit me anymore. It is time to leave the past in the past.

So I have started this thing that I’ve called project awesome. (Yes – hands up I am totally aware of how corny my projects title is)

I am reflecting on my baggage, my home, my biz, my family life, my money, my relationships…. Everything. And noted what works + what doesn’t, what I love + what I hate, what I want to feel + what I don’t.

And what I have realized is this:

I want to be surrounded by beauty (beautiful smiles, beautiful love, and beautiful environments. Not just stuff), feel deep connections with Mac, the terrible trio, my best friends + family, I want to feel more bliss moments, (moments of joy + wild happiness), to be more wild + free generally (spontaneous, less cant’s and more cans), and I want each day to balance (spiritually, emotionally and even financially)

 This is what I want.

And even though I am implementing this change because of a significant birthday next year, it doesn’t mean that you can’t start doing things differently, it doesn’t mean you can’t thinking about how you want to feel in your day. It doesn’t mean you can’t start changing some of the small things that irritate you.

And if today sucks, like my morning sucked, tomorrow do something different…. Now I'm off to go figure out what exactly this is!

By the way, if you want to join me in my project awesome year, I would love to hear how your year will be awesome! Let me know!

Round Here
Are you looking for some unique ideas for your Christmas list, gifts or even stocking stuffers? 

I was able to find a chunk of time this week to update the LilliBean Designs Shop! (happy dance!!) and all my hand painted notebooks
hanging plaques are up for sale. These will also be available at all the markets I am attending this year, so if there is one you have your eye on, make sure you snap it up before some one else does.
The 2015 calendars have arrived (WHOOT!) and I ordered a few extras and listed them here. These are always snapped
up quickly + they are the same price as last year - AU$20 (+ postage) they are an easy way to include art in your daily life. They also have heaps ofspace to write your appointments, commitments + birthdays down.

(By the way: If you order three or more the cost per calendar is a discounted $18 each.)
