Listing all posts from August of 2017. Show all posts.
  1. In keeping with my promise to myself and you all to try to do better with blogging regularly, I decided to post some pictures of a project that I am working on for the Toletown painting community for September. 

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with Toletown (www.toletown.com) it is an online painting group that is a fun place to learn about and share our love of painting. I have been aware of them for well over ten years and have been a member for as long as I can remember.
  2. Try as I may, it just hasn't been possible for me to write and blog the way I used to. There just aren't enough hours in the day.  

    It is funny, but we work so hard to achieve a level of 'success' and sometimes we don't realize that along with those successes come added responsibility and time. It isn't as if I didn't know this. I just perhaps didn't foresee that the path to succeeding required as much additional time as it does. 

    That isn't a complaint, mind you, but more so an explanation.
  3. Yesterday I did something I rarely do - I took the day 'off'. 

    There were several reasons that I did this. Lately, things have been busier than ever and I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. After many years of having my own business, I realize that working seven days a week - even when we are busy - isn't always the best answer to getting caught up. Sometimes it is best to take a step back and rest and do something completely unrelated to 'work'. No matter how much we like what we do, we all need a change of pace every now and again.
  4. A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. 

    As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and 'blurry'?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really sure exactly what we intend to accomplish?  

    When this happens to me, I must admit that not only do I not achieve as much as I would like, but I feel a higher level of stress as well.
  5. Once again it seems that I am catching up here on my blog posts. I am finding that it is harder than I thought to get back into the habit of writing each day. These days, every morning it seems that I wake up with a long list of things to do. I find myself putting off posting to just do a couple of things and before I know it, the morning gets away from me and I look to post 'tomorrow'. Then the cycle begins again. 

    But I am determined to keep posting here and get back into the habit of doing so.
