So, life gets crazy, and that sucked all my blogging energy. However, I’m back now, and a lot of cool things have happened. During my short blogging sabbatical, I started a new job, went to the Gilcrease Museum and the Philbrook for their Monet exhibit, I took in a bit of Tulsa’s Brady District First Friday Art Crawl, started working on Habitat for Humanity houses, found a photographer to take pics of my art work to start an Etsy store, went to two Greek Festival’s, one ScotsFest, and a state cheerleading competition…I have not been idle!
All those cool things aside, I’ve made some big changes in my life, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I:
- Actually have willpower
- My time management skills have greatly improved
- There is actually some business sense floating around in there
- I don’t overbook myself. (I do this A LOT) There has to be time for stopping to smell the roses…or binge watching Orange is the New Black. Whatever floats my boat.
- I can do this and not become so rigid I lose my spontaneity.
One of the pieces to this puzzle is letting crap go. For example, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to run the Tulsa Run 5k next weekend. That isn’t going to happen. I wasn’t ready, and life changes meant that my running schedule didn’t get as much attention as it should. I’m letting that one go…or trying to anyway. I’m still running, and I hope there are lots of runs in my not so distant future. The Tulsa Run, however, is one I will be cheering the runners on at the finish line…and eating some tasty crepes from Mod’s afterward. (Cheering can be hard work too!)
Today, kicked off with a gorgeous sunrise (although yesterday’s was better) and hopefully this will mark week one of exploring some of the great hiking trails in Tulsa. It is also the day of choosing the artwork to go up for sale on Etsy. (Don’t worry, when that gets all set up, I’ll let you know!) This beautiful fall Sunday has also been seen a bit of work go into a new business I’m working on getting up and running. All of that to say, what I really should be doing is cleaning my house, and getting my list ready to go to the grocery store. Talk about productive procrastination…is that even a thing? I think that should be a thing, because I’m really good at it!
Till next time,
