Hello!

Only a year between posts, not too bad. Hee hee!

Life has been busy, do you feel that way?

Learning to adapt to new circumstances, my granddaughter starting school, in a creative whorl of ideas, a lightening of space, adjusting to a new approach to life and thinking about deep things deep in my heart.

I feel that part of the process of being an artist and being self-employed is about dealing with the fear of the day to day, about the fear of not having a guaranteed paycheck or even if I can pay for insurance.

I had a dear friend say to me one time, “I choose this, and I will work it out and the money will come or it won’t, I will either go or I won’t.”

Such a beautiful way to look at it. Thank you Lala!

I choose this way, too. When I look around me I do not see stability even in the others with jobs around me. I see people trying to keep their jobs, worried about cutbacks and being let go, I see perfectly capable, qualified, and experienced people being outsourced and laid off for younger and greener kids. 

 

So is life really secure with people having a “real” job either? I think that  what be what I may have been led to believe in the era I grew up in.

And when I really look at it with my eyes wide open is there any guarantee in life any way? It can all disappear tomorrow. Or even today.

I have really learned some important things from the cut backs in my own personal life to survive and I want to share those with you.

1. Rice and beans are good and I actually like them.

2. A little meat goes a long way.

3. Bartering for services is a viable means of trade.

I think this a good start and I may add to this later.

But I am off to the care and feeding of what I chose. I am going to embrace my desperate and scared self and love the woman brave enough inside that chose this life and the woman and child inside that has to create or perish. These people deserve my attention!

Be well!

Monday Updates- How are you doing in 2011?

Me, I am gathering myself up! I feel like I am scattered from one side of the planet to the other.

I am having a hard time focusing on anything for any period of time.

We had a wonderful Christmas, it was all about Madi too! She got so many fun things to play with and some very cool clothes.



there is a very big grin on her face



I think that children make the magic of Christmas. I miss that in my life, the excitement, the belief in magic, and the law of attraction. I felt like I could wish for almost anything and get it when I was little. LOL!! Didn’t you? Why does that go away?

Madi gives that back to me and I loved it.

She loves opening presents. She will even help others open theirs. She even says cute stuff like awwwwwww! in a little munchkin voice.

I had an incredible Christmas, I have family that are very very dear to me all year long and they worked very hard to make this a wonderful Christmas for me. The thoughtful things just kept coming. It really helped to give me some hope for the New Year and a breath of light in my life. After the never ending drudge from the last few years, this was exactly what I needed to believe in magic a little again.

I need something to change the view I had been looking at for so long and that is exactly what I got. How can it get any better than that?

Now in to the 2nd week of this new year, I am feeling positive and looking forward to the miracles and grateful and know that when they come I will be able to see them!!

Thank you, all of you, I am very lucky to have you!

Happy Monday my friends, may you be luckier than me!! I wish that so much for all of you!
