 Last year, my word for the year was adventure.
I was taken on journeys in
ways I could never imagine.

Words have power. I decided to let the word
choose me this year. I had a whole bunch
of words that I liked: healing, beauty, creative,
courage, luminious.

The one word that kept pushing ahead
is Breakthrough.

Breakthrough is my word of 2010.
I can only imagine how this word
will manifest in my life. I am open
to see where this ride will take me.

Today, I take a small breakthrough
right here. Letting people know
two of my creative services I offer

Of course, most of you know I'm
an actor. Since last year, I have
started teaching acting privately.
If anyone is looking for a private
acting coach in NYC area, you can
contact me.

Inspired by the divine miss Kiki
aka as The Tarot Dame. I now
offer Tarot card readings via e-mail.
Click on my Tarot site called
The Enchanted Swan for all info.

The links to both for my Acting
and Tarot sites are on the sidebar
on the right side of my blog.

I also have been mulling over
the idea of creating an e-course.
I know it will have to do with
creativity. Beyond that..I have
to take time with winter dreaming
to see what takes shape.

Now, this was such a long e-mail.
I'm almost done. Before I forget.
The picture is me at 3 years old.
One of my favorite
childhood photos.

I wish for all of you warm thoughts on
these cold nights. I'll be back here on
my favorite day: Thursday.

Please share your word or words
of the year with me. I love to hear

Nice! I love the keyword idea. That's a very nice keyword.

I haven't thought of one yet, but HEALING is a good one, perhaps.

Congrats on the tarot reading offering!

Words to think about and words to live by. This year is going to be a really big year for you Shell!!! It's been a long time coming, but it's going to pan out!! I sense your determination!! Keep doing your thing girly!

Sarah said...

Good luck with realising your word's meanings Shell. Also with your tarot and acting endeavours. I like this idea of having a word for the year but I have not thought about it so I don't know. How do you choose? I will think.
Have a good rest of the week!

Kiki said...

Okay, first of all, that's the most adorable photo ever. I want to scoop you up and twirl you around!!

Secondly, LOVE your word for the year. BREAKTHROUGH has such a dynamic and inspiring feel to it! Perfect theme for 2010.

And lastly, congrats on putting yourself out there as an acting coach and tarot reader! I wish you the greatest success with both endeavors!! And I'm sure any e-course you put together will be fab... beautifully and thoughtfully written.

P.S. I'm diggin' "the divine miss Kiki". That would have to be my diva stage name. LOL!

your friend,

Great choice in word, Shell! And it's already working its magic. May you get streams of business, and floods of opportunity! :)

Laurel said...

I adore that little three year old you:) Precious and hopeful .
I LOVE your word and I know you are one the verge of many breakthoughs this year. I am very intrigued by tarot card idea-perhaps very soon.
I also would stand in line to be in one of your e-courses. You motivate me so often. As far as acting, I am so sad my son left that behind to be a hairdresser. I would have loved for him to meet you.

Lovely you!! :D

"Breakthrough" is such a powerful word. I'm sure you will be encountering a lot of positive new things this year.

My word is "peace."

you were the CUTEST (well, you still are, but, you know ... )

Breakthrough is a good word ... unless of course it involves an SUV and a glass house.

Belinda Munoz said...

Much Joy, Many Blissings~*
