December's Goals: How Did You Do this Week?

(1) Accept people as they are even when they cannot be, do or say what I think I need and know I want. This is carried over from last month.

Well, I didn't work on this directly but I am noticing that I am responding differently sometimes and that's a good thing! I think some of the energy healing work I've been doing has changed my thinking: if not my first thought, then my next one. It's not perfection, but I'll take it!

(2) Deepen my enjoyment of the holiday season by working half days, watching holiday movies and doing other fun holiday things.

I am having such a good time with this one!! We've been watching movies and Christmas specials and just hanging out. This afternoon, after I got done with work, I wrapped all of my son's gifts, and then last night, we went to a gift-wrapping party and I wrapped the rest of them.

(3) Continue to define and refine my developing system of seasonal color analysis for women of color. When I am working, this is the goal I want to focus my time and energy on this month.

I am reading, theorizing and blogging about 16 seasons instead of 12, and I am (internally) marrying what I have learned thus far, and looking at 16-season systems like Color Me a Season. It's been wonderful and I feel like some of the women who are harder to analyze have a place to go within those systems.

How did your week go?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. You've done really good this month! And how fun enjoying the season! I need to slow down and do that too.

  2. Hi Melanie! Thanks!! As they say, and I agree, "it's the most wonderful time of the year" :).

  3. I love #2-the most fun. :) And you should work on color analysis of women with very little color...since I am so pale. ;)

  4. Thanks, Samantha! LOLOL!! What's so interesting is, there is a season for everyone. And in your season's colors, you would never look pale, you'd look beautiful.

  5. People comment that I am never tan-but I like the porcelain complexion. God gave it to me, after all. :)

    I believe I am autumn, BTW. ;)

  6. Samantha, I think you're right! But if you never tan and your complexion is pale/porcelain, you are probably soft autumn.

    And in the soft autumn colors, your skin will look so pretty that people will pay much less attention to what color it is. :)
