I thought I'd start by sharing my office space. I'm always posting pictures of my studio and it's a near write off - but looks much better these days. So my office????? Well you decide!
|The other side|
But here's what I think. Don't forget that today is Bell Let's Talk day - the awareness campaign for mental illness. We are all wired so differently - some of us can handle and thrive on the mess above - others would be totally incapacitated. There are days when I feel overwhelmed with the enormity of the situation, but most days - I'm loving it!
I think we all need to find that comfort zone so that we can work comfortably. And one thing and I truly believe this - we need to find the root of the problem. Oh in this case - STOP buying stuff - that would fix the problem!!!!! And that's going to happen! HA HA HA HA!!!
I firmly believe that much of the mental illness situation today is that we are overwhelmed with e-mail, our stuff, social media, advertising, family, hobbies, demands of everyone. We don't want to cull things, we only see the GOOD stuff posted on-line - people rarely post their mistakes and we start to feel like a failure because we can't do everything. STOP - PRIORITIZE - FOCUS - WIN. It has a lot to be said for everything that we do!!!!!!!!!!!! And LET IT GO!!!!! If things aren't perfect - I don't care any more. I don't have time nor the energy!!! Well I do, but I don't want to waste it on silly things.
OK - so here's the moving deal. I watched a webinar last night about Social Media. Hmmmmm - while I'm somewhat knowledgeable about social media - there are people that social media is THEIR JOB. Wow - I guess people would look at me like that and say - how lucky I am. And yes - I am truly blessed with my job!
I was dreading having to change my e-mail address - not for any bad reason - just consolidating services and that means my e-mail account will go away. ACK!!!!!! Now that will set me in a panic for sure. BUT after watching the webinar - I now see it as a great opportunity and I'm pumped to get started. . However I've already got a NEW e-mail set up this morning and I'm pumped and ready to tackle SOCIAL MEDIA.
Stay tuned for that!!!!! I will be sending out notices to everyone about the change of e-mail within the next couple of days. Trust me - it's very easy to remember!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
