This month’s Brave Writer Lifestyle focus is: Celebrate!
Congratulations! You’ve lived a year of the Brave Writer Lifestyle! Well done: trying activities, applying slogans or suggestions. So important to pause, and take stock. This is your month to relax from effort, to appreciate your willingness to dive into a lifestyle and make it part of your own routine.
For December, I thought I’d “flip the script” on you.
This month, you should be curled up in a furry blanket knitting next to the fire. Therefore, I do not have a set of hand-lettered tips for you to implement in December.
Instead, I charge you to create your own hand-lettered celebration page!
Hang it in your office or on your kitchen bulletin board to remind you that you at least attempted to implement some of the ideas I shared this year.
Easy Hack: Make a bullet list that highlights your favorite activities—those suggestions that went well with your family.
Then, will you share it with me? You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag me on Instagram: @juliebravewriter
I would love to see how you honor your efforts this year.
I’ll be honest: learning how to hand-letter was a lot more challenging than I expected and I did it a lot less well than I thought I would! Isn’t that how it goes when you learn a new skill? Except I never think that will be true of me. I expect to be good at the thing instantly. Then I want to give up when I’m not. Because I had a year-long commitment to draw hand-lettered tips and I made that commitment to YOU, I kept at it—persevered past my own lack of skill, and found that I did grow anyway. #wow
So: here’s a gentle push to recognize your own growth this year! Then share with me what you create.
