“We’re still pretty traumatised about our periods, even though we’re now 40. Being a woman doesn’t make “being a woman” any easier. All that womb-shit is nuts. It’s like having an exploding, insane blood-bag of pain up in your business end — nothing really prepares you for when it all kicks off. One day, you’re just a kid on your bike. The next, you’re suddenly having to wedge a tiny Barbie mattress in your knickers, crying while you watch Bergerac, and eating Nurofen Plus like they’re Tic Tacs.” — I love Caitlin Moran

Let’s make magic in 2017!

Unravel Your Year 2017 : a free workbook on SusannahConway.com

 

If you ever meet me in the street I can guarantee I’ll have a journal with me. Writing stuff down has always been how I make sense of the world, ever since my 11-year-old self chronicled the passing of her guinea pig in her Bramley Hedge notebook. So it’ll come as no surprise that I love all the reflecting that goes on at this time of year and I especially love sharing my yearly workbook with the world!

It’s got a new name but I promise I haven’t altered too much in this 2017 edition. I like to compare my answers from year to year and as a creature of habit it feels extra cosy to sink into these familiar pages and reflect on the year that’s passing. The cover is full colour which will look fab if you’re getting it printed (I like Blurb’s economy magazine option) but to keep it printer-friendly I’m including a separate B&W cover you can colour in if you wish :-)

 

Unravel Your Year 2017

 

This year I’m also experimenting with a planner of sorts. The calendar’s been jazzed up and I’ve added some monthly reflections (loving these a lot!). You’ll also find blank daily and weekly pages at the back which you can use to create your own DIY planner. To be completely honest I have no idea how well this will work, but it’s something I’ve been hankering after for ages. There’s a good chance 2018’s workbook will be accompanied by a full-on planner…. Watch this space!

If you share your printed workbooks and planners on social media use the hashtag #unravelyouryear2017 so I can take a peek at the magic you’re making!

Find Your Word 2017 :: the free 5-day course on SusannahConway.com

 

Find Your Word is also back by popular demand!

In the eight years I’ve been choosing a word for the year, my life has certainly changed for the better. Some of my previous words proved to be wildly empowering — BRAVE, EXPAND and OPEN were all dynamically useful words that helped me create change in my life. Other words have been less helpful: COMPASSION, for example, was a bit of a cop-out in 2011. Last year’s word was NOURISH and it was the most supportive and nourishing — pun intended — word I’ve chosen so far. This year I’ve danced with LOVE and now I look back I see it was exactly the word I needed to navigate all this year has thrown at me.

The more I do this practice the more I understand why it’s such a valuable thing to do each year. I also know that sometimes we need a hand uncovering our just-right word, so I created this sweet lil 5-day course to help you find YOUR word for 2017.

Head over to this page
to get started — it’s completely free, of course!

ENJOY! xo
