I’ve got a big project that I’ve been working on the past few months that’s taken a lot of my time. I was hoping to have it done before Christmas, but I don’t think I’m going to make it. It’s something that I’ve never done before, so I’m a little overwhelmed by it and am taking more time than I planned. Have you ever tried something new that is completely out of your comfort zone? That’s where I am right now. It’s come to my attention that I have a gift for dreaming up new creative ideas that are unrestrained by the burdens of everyday life. As exciting and fun as that is, it can get me into trouble. Because my head is always in the clouds, I’m not very grounded so I crash and burn a lot.
Part of really knowing yourself is acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses, learning from them as well as balancing them. I’ve been trying to start the day with mediation/prayer so I can get ideas clear in my head. I sit at my computer desk with my face toward the window and try to calm my mind. It’s challenging to quiet the chaos, but the last few days, I’ve been able to catch the sun as it rises above the mountains. As I’m sitting there quietly with my face towards the window, the sun gets brighter and brighter. I can feel it’s glow and warmth on my face. It can be quite a spiritual experience because everything’s silent around me, and the only thing I’m aware of is the celestial beauty of the sun.
Although this particular project won’t be released to the general public, it’s been a challenging, growing, and rewarding experience for me. Never fear, though! I’ve always got new ideas and projects to share with you!!!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
