trying but ...
subtitled - a little winge
oh my, oh my goodness
If I were to be truly honest I would say I have too much on my plate or I need to learn how to say "No" but ... I love every little thing/project on my plate plus I'm continually dreaming up new plates - or is that projects ? When one chooses the life of the self employed, when one's main thrust in life is growing a small, self-sustaining Creative Empire it becomes difficult to stop & take the time to smell the midday roses. I've been trying, I think, at least that's what I've been telling myself. Trying to fit some other things into this life. Some darn TLC things, self care things (yoga, stretching, walking), fun things (lazing around eating bon bons & reading a good book or flipping through the one of the far way many magazines I subscribe to). I'm trying not to be sitting hunched over my desk holding my breath or just forgetting to breath day in day out, day in day out. I think to myself often lately Hey ! get a life you !
But I love my life ... or at least most of it. I'm not crazy about the business side of running a business, that ol' devil is in the darn details part of running your own creative business (no wonder I've been holding my breath) - ordering giclee prints (that job alone for some reason nearly kills me every time), ordering cellophane & envelopes & shipping materials, doing etsy photography & listing new items, & lets not forget les marketing of me & schmoozing & trying trying to constantly be drumming up new tres exciting work.
I know ... you must be thinking B-O-R-I-N-G !! It is boring ... I'm trying so hard to be more efficient with my time, trying so hard to fit more pleasure into my days, trying to be extra sweet to me & my body & to me some more. Trying ... but not yet succeeding. Winge.
