Today marks the 2-year anniversary of when I launched ErinPavlina.com and my blog. I just remembered also that I went vegan on January 19, 1997, so I guess I’m also celebrating 11 years as a vegan. January 19 appears to be an auspicious day for me and for launching things.
I looked back over my goals from last year and noticed that I didn’t get around to writing fiction like I wanted. I’ve been in talks with my cousin, the screenwriter, to develop a tv show or a movie based on some paranormal things, but so far I’ve got nothing but ideas to show for it. Due to the writer’s strike he can’t even really work on the show anyway, but I’m not giving up. I will get something to him by year’s end.
On the Toastmaster front … I am giving my 10th speech this Thursday, so I will be a Competent Communicator, which is the completion of the first level of Toastmaster training. I’m excited to reach this goal. Public speaking was never a forte of mine, but I’ve really come to enjoy it, and I’ve gotten a lot better since I joined Toastmasters. I’ve also recently been challenging myself to speak outside my club (where I’ve gotten comfy) and have been volunteering to speak at other clubs. I intend to do more of that this year while I begin my Advanced Communicator Bronze program (10 more speeches, more specialized though).
And the readings … still doing lots of readings and they’re going well. As mentioned in a recent blog entry, the process is changing a little and I’m getting more information clairaudiently. I’m adapting to this new method and by the end of the year I’m sure it will change again.
Products. This is my big goal for this year. Doing readings is wonderful, but I can only help one person at a time, and I’m feeling an urge to create something that more people can access. By the end of this year I’m intending to have either a book or audio program that will help people tune in to their own spirit guides, increase intuition, contact their deceased relatives, and more.
On the personal side of things, I’m taking more time to do some of the things I enjoy most. I want to travel, meet new people, perhaps do a seminar or workshop locally, and get some rest and relaxation. My mother-in-law got me a gift certificate to my favorite spa here in town, last July for my birthday and I still haven’t used it. As God is my witness I will be at the spa the first week of February! Come Hell or high water… well, you get the idea. Health is a big goal of mine this year. I’ll blog more about that in time. And I want to spend more time with the kids too.
I enjoy the communication I receive from my readers. The best way to reach me is through the contact form or you can submit a question through the Ask Erin form. I regret that I usually don’t have time to get into lengthy back and forth emails with people, and please don’t write me your entire dream, I’m not going to interpret it for you. I just don’t have that kind of time.
Please visit our discussion forums. They’re a great place to meet other like-minded “smart people.” And if I don’t answer your question fast enough, you’ll get an answer there pretty darn quick.
I’m here to serve. If there’s anything you’d like to see me write more about, please let me know. Thanks to everyone who made my second year fantastic! On to number three!
