Living Your Personal Theme in 2009 - by Joanna Lindenbaum

I’m so excited to share this process with you! I’ve developed a unique method to help you create your own personal guide of instructions and inspiration for 2009….all based on what’s most important to you!
Step 1: Create a Personal Theme Power Page - Now that you’ve got your Personal Theme for 2009 (click here if you didn’t see my last newsletter article), write it down in the middle of a fresh, clean piece of paper. Feel free to use crayons or colored markers. That’s right - let’s really tap into our creativity here to manifest awesome energy for 2009. I call this paper yourPersonal Theme Power Page.
Step 2: Uncover Mini-Actions to Your Personal Theme - Once you’ve written down your theme, take a few minutes to write down all the things - big and small - that you can do in your life to foster and manifest this theme. Think about all areas of your life as you make his list: work, health, relationships, connections to self, finances, etc. Write these mini-action steps all over your Personal Theme Power Page in any way you like. For example, my personal theme for 2009 is Joy and Enjoyment. Some of the mini-action steps on my Personal Theme Power Page are:

* Get a massage
* Giggle with my baby daughter, Penina (instead of wonder what new messages popped up in my email account)
* Do yoga (because it really gives me joy!)
* Laugh at my most current mistake
* Spend time in nature
* Get excited about the yummy meals I’m going to cook as I wait on line at the supermarket
* Listen to music that makes me happy as I do administrative work for my coaching business (I’m doing that right now!)
* Give thanks for the miracle of a healthy and happy daughter as she wakes me for feedings in the middle of the night
* Relish the moments I get to spend helping and supporting my clients
* Sing show tunes when I find myself stuck in traffic (I admit it - I just love showtunes!)

Whatever your Personal Theme is, take some time to come up with at least 12 - 20 mini-action steps and write them all over your Personal Theme Power page. 
These mini-actions steps are the building blocks of your upcoming year.
Step 3: Live Your Personal Theme! Now that you are clear on your Personal Theme and you’ve uncovered essential steps tocreating the feeling of that theme in your life, it’s time to take action and live it! My invitation to you is to pick one mini-action step from your Personal Theme Power Page each day and simply do it! Once you see that you are following through on one action step a day, then pick two that you want to do each morning. You’ll see that with each week you’ll be doing more and more things to live your personal theme, and it will soon become intuitive and second nature to simply create this feeling in your life!
