Oh, did the spring just slip away from me. I have been living in this odd time vacuum that feels a bit wonky. I am trying to balance my paper calendar and my new digital online life (very cumbersome) and I spend more time balancing the two than actually accomplishing anything of great value or worth (other than "work" stuff).
I lived through my midlife crisis without dying my hair purple or running off with a 25 year old boy. I am so relieved to have made it through all of the insecurity and anxiety without losing too much hair or sleep. I did lose a little of both, but I can get ahead of those things.
So what now? I am writing again, daily. I have a schedule that I follow and it feels good to produce something concrete. I am also surprised when I re-read my day's pages. It takes me a moment to realize that my brain was able to piece some really amazing words together~ friends have been telling me FOREVER to finish what I started writing. 2016 is the year of the finished manuscript. I may reach 12/31/16 huffing and puffing and sleep deprived but the manuscript will be completed.
My Instagram and FB pages have been filled with feel good 'you can do it' and 'the universe is conspiring to help you' gifs. Well, with all of the woo woo about the Law of Attraction, we sometimes forget rule number one: You have to put action to intention. This year, I committed to ACT on my dream and irrespective of the outcome, so far it feels fabulous.
I have always fancied myself a writer. My busy life takes most of my best laid plans (writing EVERY day) and pushes them off to the side as I deal with the day to day reality of running a business, keeping my relationship happy/healthy and trying to keep 3 teenaged girls from running amok.
