In case you haven't noticed, posts have been a little scarce around here.
Part of it is due to the time of the year. The last two weeks of school and the first two are usually my hardest times of the year in terms of busyness. This year, with the Race Across America, we have been in busy overload.
I know it's bad when I wake up on a Sunday morning and don't want to move.
And then I don't.
This week, Brenna is finished with her freshman year of high school. Next week, the team takes off for the race. Lauren will be part of the team again this year. Brenna and I leave to join them at the finish line on the 25th, and then help drive motor homes back across the country. That takes us to the fourth of July........
....and whoosh. Just like that, a month has flown by.
This is where I fight off the feelings of panic.
I still have NOTHING done about my etsy shop.
I have not touched my art room in at least a week and a half.
Summer will fly by, and I long for lazy days.
Which is why I'm pretty much laying here, fairly paralyzed in bed.
Then I recall my word for the year:
And I tell myself:
I'm going to try my best to focus on the present moment, not panic about an etsy shop.
I'm going to try my best to schedule in artwork, and love the moments I have with it.
I will NOT panic because I'm not where I think I "should" be with my blog, art, Brenna, the house, the yard, etc.
I will NOT give in to feelings of not doing enough with art, or anything else for that matter, because I cannot do it ALL!
I WILL be intentional about enjoying each day-even if they are crazy busy- because I won't ever have another one quite like it.
Let's enjoy this day, this week, my friends, no matter what craziness lies in it!
