2 years since I started my passion life goal

Time flies – It seems like yesterday I was writing 1 Year since I started Joanouk .

I am very happy that I have grown and changed a little in the direction I was planning since then. I have changed to focus more on my abstract art and finding what truly makes me burn with excitement.

I thought I might re-hash a post I did a while ago and change it to a brief goal for the year run down 🙂

I will list my goals for 2015

My Mind: De-stress more. Get rid of the buzzing in my head (too many thoughts) and try to calmm down and concentrate.

My Body: Exercise more. Get moving and get energised. I loved running – so I will have to get back into it.

My Spirit: Find some music that speaks deep into my soul and rock out

My Relationships: Continue the strong bond I have with my husband and do more spur of the moment things for everyone I care about.

My Creativity: Find a creative course and practice, practice, practice!

My Passion: Finish paintings, finish more to get a good body of work available and find my true style.


I would love to hear your variations – you can copy my goals and make your own – I would love to see your links in the comments!

Inspiration Fridays – Passion

I had a motivational speaker at work yesterday.

He was talking about having passion for your job and if you are injured that passion will return you quicker to health. I wasn’t listening to the part where he related the talk to my workplace. I was listening about having passion for what you love in life. And I found that earlier this year. It has changed my perspective on life and I won’t be happy until I find my version of success.

I am excited to get up every day to work on my business, yes sometimes  it is hard but I keep thinking of my goal to be self employed. To be my own boss.

Slowly but surely I am working towards that goal


Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Inspiration Fridays – “Today”

I started “Insiration Fridays” on my facebook page but I thought I would go into more detail here:

Brought to you by a pinterest quote pin

Something like this is a good reminder to take action everyday.

Try this – write a list for the week ahead that specifies one goal per day for all of the categories above or just one. Even accomplishing one per day makes a huge difference to my confidence.

I will list my goals for today:

My Mind: Currently reading $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau http://100startup.com/. Great book about working for yourself and starting your own business with very little money.

My Body: Take some cold and flu tablets! Not feeling the best so I have to take care of it today and not stress too much.

My Spirit: Play with my Cavalier – I love playing with dogs they take all the cares in the world away and make me feel happy

My Relationships: Call my mum and organise her birthday dinner

My Creativity: Write down 3 new ideas for paintings – already done so I’m excited!

My Passion: Try and start a new painting today

What are you doing today?
