...serenity in motion

During stressful times, we need to cut ourselves a break.

My life is upside down again.  My husband are selling and moving houses, again.  Our lovely house, I out grew and the lot size didn't give us any chance of building storage for my business or adding a studio.  I find myself packing, again.... sigh*   Yesterday, I was supposed to post a blog and I never got a chance to do it.  When I started this blog with the school, it was a bit of a challenge to do regularly.  As my time ran down, I found that I was able to keep it up and it became a habit with me.  I liked putting my thoughts up on the web and sharing them.  I found out that people followed me! What a revelation.  Thus, at the end of my residency; I moved it to my web page.

My web designer asked me, "Do you know what kind of monster your feeding?  Every week without fail, and adding it is going to cost you."  He had others who had started a blog and never followed through with it.  I assured him that I already had one going.  So we added it and I moved forward.  Yesterday, with all of the packing and loading and unloading and unpacking; I didn't get to posting.

I'm sorry, I am late.  I don't like being late, but I am posting now.  It isn't the first time I have been late and it won't be the last.  I am an artist and while we try to do everything on time, sometimes; it doesn't work.  Today is about forgiving myself for not getting it right all the time.  You can't move forward if you keep dwelling in the past.  I'm gonna say "Oops" and keep moving forward (Disney, for those of you who didn't know).  It won't me my last mistake, and that is okay.  Until we get the wifi set up in the new place, I might be having a few more glitches.  I'll get it right most of the time.  Try to give yourself a break this week.  Break an egg, drop a ball and say, "Oh well."  That was my favorite stepdad's saying.  He dropped a u-joint going 80 miles an hour going down a steep grade.  Took out his gear box, his transmission and his rear differential and all he said in the midst of this crisis, "Oh well."  Similar to "Se Cayo" in spanish.  It basically means that it can't be helped and we need to deal and move on.  I'm going to leave you with one last quote today from Aaron Spelling, "What's next?"   Not in a disaster kind of way, this is a "What is the next thing on today's do list."  Blog is done, What's next.  Have a productive week.
