This is my first update in a while, and I freely admit that I haven’t been doing much writing lately. I think it’s the weather, an increase in performance gigs, and just that occasional lull that shows up – the kind that allows me to fill my cup with new things to write about when I do get back to it. I received a compliment on my posts here being positive, and that’s something I’ve learned to embody. If I was writing this just a couple of years ago, I’d be beating myself up for what I didn’t do. But these days I focus on looking at what does work.
If I don’t “get stuff done” that was on my list, how would it help to be all self-critical about it? Life’s too short to generate stuff to feel bad about. And what have I been doing, instead? I certainly haven’t been lying around in bed feeling sorry for myself – not that there’s anything wrong with that, if I felt I needed it.
I guess the key, for me, is that these days I return, again and again, to mindfulness. What do I need? What do I want? How am I feeling? What am I learning? I check in with myself on a regular basis, to ensure that I’m listening to my intuition and fostering a deep connection with my source. Those are the places from whence my creativity emerges. And looking at life from that perspective, I’m doing really well.
Here are the details:
As noted above, I haven’t been doing much writing (aside from my daily journal practice). I’ve been jotting down some notes, ideas for the e-book as well as our upcoming workshop, but that’s about it. Things are percolating in the background.
- We’re all ready for our Facebook chat on our Feline Dreamers page, beginning about two hours from when I’m writing this. Woo hoo!
- We set up a GoFundMe page for our upcoming Rethinking Everything adventure. Click here to find out what the heck I’m talking about. We also sent in our descriptions for the sessions we’ll be doing at the conference.
- Ongoing promotion (book and website) has been going well. I’ve had lots of folks asking me about my book, and showing interest. I finished my GoodReads giveaway, too.
- I haven’t done any more on setting up the book signing, yet. This week I’ll make that detailed list and start checking things off.
Wellness and Practice
My journaling, dancing, and drumming practices are all going very well. They keep me grounded and centered in my spiritual creativity, even when I’m busy doing other things. I’ve been enjoying sacred space pretty regularly, too.
Have a great week and enjoy your process, however it goes!
