It’s July and all I can think about is how much work I still have to do, not how much I have accomplished instead, I focus on the missing part. The proverbial half empty glass. I can barely look at a calendar without being reminded that I haven’t filed a Life In Session post in 4 weeks, make that 8 or has it been nine since my the last recap (you get the picture.) I’m trying not to be too hard on myself because not blogging means I am making right decisions, choosing cooking over screentime, laundry over Top 10 lists, balancing my bank account over choosing a new font. Am I whipping up delicious meals on a regular basis? Hardly, but I don’t have that nagging guilt that I was doing something that was burning through very small bank of hours.
While I regroup myself this summer I’ve taken the pledge to honor my first love, photography (you thought I was going to say Prince didn’t you…) I’ve been working hard curating images and updating my portfolio/site, I even fired up the ol’ monolithic printer and started stocking my ETSY store after my first photography show last month (RAWArtists.org) I’m selling prints from that show here. It was quite an experience from beginning to end, so much work so many pitfalls but I made sure to write them all down so I could share the experience with others thinking about showing their work. There’s also the New York post I left in ‘Draft’ mode that I need to finish, the post about dropping $1200 in a day and getting nothing for it, the nightmare that is college prep, making a school yearbook from scratch and learning that saying “no” is sometimes life saving.
Its will all be here, someday, but just not today. In the meantime if you are sharing in my feelings of running behind and that general overwhelmedness, read this article about the epidemic of busyness and then try the suggested method of changing your perception by telling yourself this simple fact…
