With new chapters… fresh starts and new beginnings… comes the chance to build…

Build on what’s already there & flourishing and also, build in new directions and discover new possibilities.

That’s where I feel I am… where my family is… where my art is… it’s time to build.

A shift has happened over the last year or so, in so many parts of my life… and now it’s time to add to it all… nurture and grow it.

Build on the relationships I have

Build my business

Build my art & passions

Build on my dreams and the dreams of those I love

Build a new home

Build a community doing what we love

Build & make the adventures our family would like to have possible

Build on being me

Build on breaking bad habits

Build my personal projects

Build on establishing proper organisation  

Build my portrait commissions

Build on our desire to travel

Build back my yoga practice

Build on my vision and doing more of what I love

Build on my belief that it will all work out as it’s meant to be.

Gosh, that’s a lot… I do realise…that’s the exciting (and scary) bit… and it only has to happen one step at a time, right?.

What’s your word for the year ahead?


Registration is open for A JOURNEY… starting in a couple of weeks… all the details are here, and I’d love to have you join us.

    My word is self-care. Instead of putting my needs last, I’m going to focus on my health, dreams, and goals.

    Sounds excellent, Xanthe. My dad was a contractor so “build” is a word that has good strong connections for me. I’d buy you a tool belt (grin). My word is “peace.” Peace abundant, flowing into the areas of my life and my self, into my days and my pace. So peace on, good woman, peace on.

    I love “build”, Xanthe! My word for the year is “forward”. I need get going on all the things I started last year!

    Build – I like it! I liked Fly too. Yep Build is a good one, I could do with some of that. Also the creating time capsules.. I should come and play. It’s on my list of things I’d like to achieve during 2013.. make beautiful short films. Happy 2013 lovely lady! xx
