This was what my coach said to me every time I’d have my little fits about the overwhelm of growing a business, the challenge of writing songs, the massive amounts of to-do’s there were, and all that I was learning and becoming.
He also reminded me to take lots of naps because expansion takes energy, and naps are good for self-care and energy.
And then he’d say to look at it this way: So many people are thoroughly bored with their jobs and their lives and the same old same old. It’s an honor to live a life that’s exciting and interesting and challenging. I do remember that. I’m going to assume that if you’re even reading my blog at all, then you are one of those people who isn’t bored either. Put that on your gratitude list tonight! And I’ll put it on mine. (Along with my dog. She makes it on there quite a bit!)
So, I leave you with this short post as a way to appease Starbucker, who long ago remarked that I could occasionally write shorter posts. (If you click over to his site, read his most recent post about 5 words. It’s a keeper!) This is also a way of weaseling my way out of blogging right now because I’m writing songs, and I’m editing a new DVD to be released in March, and I’ve moved my office, and I’m working with several people re-doing my whole website, and it’s all very NON-boring. And for that, I am grateful! (And for my dog, too!)
