After a Long Break
I've taken a break...a very long and needed break. Working full time doesn't allow me the freedom to sit at the computer for very long anymore. I have to make choices...either spend my time doing something productive, or spend time catching up on the computer. Don't get me wrong...I love to sit and catch up on all the blogs and groups, but I just don't have that luxary anymore...so, I have made some goals:
1) Update my blog once a month
2) Take one hour a week to catch up reading my favorite blogs
3) HIRE A HOUSEKEEPER (a must, must, must!)
4) Put no pressures on myself
This break away has been very positive in that I have learned so much about myself, my strengths and weaknesses (both personally and professionally), the power of true friendships, and the importance of being genuine.
This being a 3-day weekend, I immerged myself in creativity. Thank goodness for opening bird season weekend, as I have the house to myself and four critters...
When it comes to visual arts, I always work intuitively. I see something and immediately it just comes to me. I bought a Dover clip art book and was flipping through the pages with a Halloween theme in mind, but something else came to mind instantly...that which grabs our heart. While the pictures are pretty bare (bare to the bones, literally)there was such power in my thought process as I moved quickly through the pieces. Our hearts can be grabbed both positively and negatively...that we can not control, but what we can control is how we react to those feelings...
