monday in motion

welcome to a brand new sparkly week!

interviewing goddess leonie last night got me all excited to hone in on my MITs (most important tasks). we mused about our passion for 12 zen habits and the beautiful way she brought them to life *in color!*

considering i'm costa rica bound for a week, i have to really hone in on my MITs to ensure everything gets done before i leave town. however, i've been handling piddly projects most of the morning and doing oodles of social networking. my oh my that twitter stuff is addicting! started following the dalai lama. gotta keep up with his whereabouts, right?

as i settle in for the day i am focusing on my MITs - especially the time sensitive ones. for example, i have a 3-4 page paper due tonight for my creative non-fiction writing class AND i still have to finish the reading associated with the crafting of said paper. in addition, i'm longing for a change of venue. rather than working at the showroom today (a typical monday + friday adventure), i'm going to stay at chez moi to bask in the fragrance of the stargazer lilies (see photo) and the comfort of my home. shaking up routine is a sure way to shift perspective and appreciate the small things.

during book club last friday, blogger extraordinaire all about the pretty mentioned that she has themes in her blog - destination pretty plus eat, drink + be pretty. i loved the idea and am toying with tranquility du jour themes. i think of tranquility du jour as a fusion of spirituality, creativity, entrepreneurship, style, + do-gooding. LOTS of fusion but we are, after all, multi-faceted women with oodles of interests! any suggestions on ways to infuse the themes into your blog experience? would you like to see the interests divided up or do you prefer a cocktail of them all (as i currently do)?

as you can probably tell from this question and my post last week, change is brewing deep within - like a small seedling pushing to the surface. i want to ensure i offer you the musings you need to stay inspired and informed on living a sparkling lifestyle infused with tranquility!

merci beaucoup in advance for your feedback and for your support!

I have to say, I love your blog the way it is but I'm open for change. I'm one to keep my blog random for the most part, but I do sort of have two themes to mine. One is for it not to be work related. Of course, I do write about mental health and holistic health at time, but I try to not make it a therapy session. Also, there was a time where I devoted Mondays to blog recommendations (I think you were my first!). Unfortunately, blog recommendations fizzled away but I have developed a larger blog following so perhaps I could revamp that idea. Themes or no themes, you maintain a fabulous blog!

mmmm, i feel change-a-comin' too. it's an interesting bit of percolation, isn't it? i keep peeking under the lid and thinking "no, not quite ready yet." and my impatient self says "when? when?"

so, i've been playing with the concept of divine time -- isn't that gorgeous?!? just doing the work and knowing that all things will unfold as they should. and, all the while, talking softly to the self that has a plan, wants to move it its desired pace etc.

anyway, ramble, ramble ... looking very much forward to your evolution, magnifique papillon! (and that of your blog too!)

I love your blog just as it is. I'm also really looking forward to reading your new book. When will it be available?

Hi Kimberly,

I love your blog as well, but themes do sound intriguing. I enjoy them on many of the blogs that I read and sometimes it's nice to sort of know what to expect on a particular day, but they still allow you to be spontaneous as well. It wouldn't be good to be too structured, but a regular weekly feature or something like that would be fabulous!
