It’s been just over a week since I announced the first day of the rest of my life, and I think it’s time to reflect. I would love your help! Whether you’ve been reading this blog since the beginning or you just came on board, your input is valuable. I’ve created a short survey to collect your thoughts and help me collect my own.

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world's leading questionnaire tool.

As a small token of my appreciation, I’ll be sending one lucky respondent a copy of this lovely print by Speak Easy Digital Art. Thanks for helping me find clarity! If you can’t participate in the survey for any reason, feel free to leave a comment to be considered for the giveaway. Winner will be selected on Tuesday, January 13.

Something on my head? wut, do I have something on my head?

And now, to take stock of myself. I found this list on Meet Me At Mike’s and I love it (though I took a few off that I didn’t have good answers for)! It’s great to have a structured way to reflect on your week. I may not do this every Friday, but I’m considering an entry in my card catalog.
