I've had so many pots in so many fires for the last few months, and so many things in progress, not yet finished, too early to show much of anything.
Throw in a huge computer crash, a few health crashes, and what you get is the need to regroup, recharge, and look around for new inspiration and ideas.
This isn't unique to me - we've all felt this one at one time or another.
But a lightbulb turned on for me today, as I madly worked on 10 different things at once, feeling pressured by deadlines, not feeling the least bit creative or productive. My lightbulb was this: "I can choose to do what I want/love/have been dying to do, and let go of the rest."
Now, in part, this is thanks to Danielle LaPorte's fantastic upcoming ebook/program, Firestarter Sessions. Without sounding like a big commercial, I preordered this last week and devoured the preview chapter I received. We (I) get so busy doing stuff that isn't that meaningful to us (me), that we (I) really don't enjoy doing, and then never have time (or energy or passion or love) to do the things that really matter to us (me). I've been eating it up - exactly what I needed to heat at just the moment that I needed to hear it.
I have life decisions to make (oh, things like, where to live). Product lines to develop. Business direction to decide on. Things to learn. Fun to have. Life to live.
I'm not closing up shop, don't worry, but I will be much less active here and elsewhere while I explore all of these things and start the process of simplifying my life. You can always shoot me an email if you're not seeing me at any of the usual places! I'd love to hear from you. :) And I'll post tidbits, updates and ah ha moments. I suspect I'll be more and more inspired and energized as I let go of more and more!
