  1. I love this line: That simple direction allows me to start something new more quickly, and release what isn’t working with ease.

    This year for me is so exciting. I left corporate America late last year and get to focus on my passion full time. I started a blog, EscapingDodge.com, and it’s so much fun to learn and grow from the experience. Meeting new people who are interested in the same subjects make it that much more rewarding.

    Thanks for the great post, Courtney!

  2. I love that you and your daughter have created a mother-daughter book club. What memories and connections you are creating. I know CJ and I benefited so much from starting our book club. We even dealt with difficult family situations with humor by saying, Isn’t that like Gary from The Corrections? It was rather like when you ask someone for advice for “my friend” and it’s really for you! ;)

      Tammy, Books and really words really have a unique way of connecting people. I hope we continue the book club for years to come.

  3. Courtney, you have a way of putting things in perspective in a beautiful and direct way and that is what makes you simply sensational. I gleaned a lot of good information from the SXSW audio conference and appreciate that you shared that with us. I have recently signed up for Joshua Millburn’s writing class that begins in July and only learned about their site from reading your blog. Keep sharing and keep creating because you are making a difference in our lives – one post and one conversation at a time.

  4. We’ve been so busy writing our book and maintaining our blog that books have disappeared until last week!! So glad they are back and with a killer-read – The Enchantress of Florence. Should be a super boost to the vocab and a model for superior sentence structure. Thanks as always for your terrific reminders and tips, Courtney!

  5. That is so sweet of your daughter. It’s sounds like you two are really close. It’s nice to hear about that.

  6. Absolutely love the idea of a mother-daughter book club, enjoying the time spent together with family is so important and carries so much more meaning than “just” another necklace. Have a wonderful new month!

  7. Loved this post. I have been thinking of taking up tarot reading professionally for months now but never really started due to my job commitments and complacency. Your post encouraged me to take the first step. I have started offering tarot readings on tarotpress.wordpress.com and slowly will work on a proper website.But at least, I took the first step in the direction of my dreams and that is what’s more important.

  8. I love the way you are now measuring your success, and I know I am definitely learning from your example. The bonus is that I am enjoying the process so much more, and allowing it to take as long as it needs, without stress. It feels fantastic.

    I also love the mother-daughter book club idea. It is such a thoughtful concept. Yay for you and your daughter.

    Enjoy your adventures :-)
