“SHINE” is my Word for the Year


At the beginning of this year I had the luck to be pointed in the direction of the wonderful and talented Leonie Dawson her message resonated with me because she is so down to earth and likes doing art and has a child .. also her business message and the help she gives to other business owners is really simple and easy to follow with a amazing creative flair that appeals to my creative mind.


I was instantly taken with the site and ended up signing up for a full membership for the year and I have not regretted one minute of that choice as it has totally turned my life around. The resources that become available to you FREE once you sign up are abundant and I haven’t got through them all yet but the ones I have used so far have got me buzzing with energy and setting me on the right track towards living my passion and being financially stable in doing it.

The 2013 Incredible Year Life and Business Workbooks and Calendars have to date been the most prominent part of my journey sitting down and making you think about how you hold onto the past and how you see your future and how you see yourself as a human being it has been a tremendous journey of growth.

2013 Incredible Year Workbooks & Calendars

One of the Exercises in the Life Workbook is to Choose a “WORD” of the year something that tells you what you want to be and achieve this year what you need to focus on and work on.

It didn’t take me more than a minute to come up with my word ….


It was just so perfect it reflects what I do as a nature photographer bringing the light and sunshine to the world each day and it also showed what I need to work on and that is letting myself be seen and shining my own light for everyone to see as well as showing my shining work to the world more.

I didn’t see the real impact of picking a word for the year at first but put faith in doing it and had some fun jazzing up my page in the work book.

Then as I was putting away my 2012 calendar and releasing all that was in 2012 I saw the Shining sun through the clouds image and it just said to me “SHINE” a little project then emerged and in doing this project the rainbow farm kids joined in and had a ball (highly recommend trying it with your kids and an old calendar)

Since putting that calendar poster up on my Office door to see everytime I walk in it really has helped keep my mind on the word and the meaning of SHINE and I believe it is making my day so much easier to get through and the ideas and abundance is flowing so well now I am not even feeling like I am working just living the love of my passion.

If you would like to do your own “word” project with a Rainbow Farm Photography Calendar check out the Calendar selection HERE if you can’t find one you like email through to and we can do a customised calendar for you .. the calendars can be set to any start month you wish or you can just use it as a CHEAP way to get 13 images to frame.

I highly recommend checking out Leonie Dawson Website the membership is a few dollars but you truly recoup it in value and she does offer payment plans if you need them.

If you can’t afford the membership make sure you jump in now and grab one or both of the workbooks which come with calendars they are priceless and such a bargain starting at $9.95

Another great way to keep your wonderful work done on your new years goals and your “word” of the year is to BUY NOW the amazing New Year’s Goals Package from Rainbow Farm Photography that gives you a beautiful image of your word customised for you with an affirmation along with lots of other goodies to choose from .. check out the whole package by clicking on the “SPARKLE” image which is an example of one of the images included in the package.

    Hey there, You have done an incredible job. I’ll definitely digg it and individually recommend to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  3. I love the illustration you have of ‘Shine’ -it reminds me of Sark’s work -so beautiful & colourful. My word for 2013 is Slow -slow marketing, slow parenting & slow living. I’m going to take time, be more present & less frantic.

    • Hi Jo … thanks for your comment .. the Shine page is from the Leonie Dawson workbook and I know she does know SARK but not sure who was around first but they do have a similar vibe.

      I love you idea of being present and more frantic but I do worry slightly that focusing on “slow” may bring more “slow” in areas you may not want it like kids going slow… maybe a word like “quality” so that you spend quality time with parenting, marketing, life .. or even “time” for that matter .. it’s just a thought but great that you are thinking of how you want your life to be and moving towards it 🙂

  4. I just want to tell you that I’m very new to blogs and absolutely enjoyed your web page. Very likely I’m likely to bookmark your site . You really have superb posts. Thank you for revealing your web site.
