It is not even in alignment with my page name. But, then, things evolve. This was started as a outlet for the fact I could not work. I am the type of person who has to work, I love it. Then I got so sick I could not do a thing... and so I started this page, to have something to do from bed. Well, I over did it like everything I do! I just wanted to feel productive, useful.
Now, here is my heart for 2017. It is telling me to stop consuming, stop buying. Maybe it is Christmas guilt spending, maybe it is my exhaustion and inability to do this page justice anymore (in my perfectionist mind).
But I feel this challenge. I feel like I should see how long I can go with NOT buying anything and instead use up everything I have. The lotions and body washes. You may have it horded like I do?
I have a hard time using my expensive things. You may have that problem to, or not?! But I do. I find it very hard to use my expensive soaps and face creams. So I want to do something radical for ME. I want to "use the good stuff," and I want to "use what I have before I buy more."
Of course we can never use all our makeup before we buy more -let's be serious- but I sure could put dent in it. I collect makeup like hand bags.
So this page is going to undergo a bit of a shift for 2017. I am honored you have journeyed with me this far, and I hope you will stay and hold me accountable to my new idea. New year, new ideas, time for change. What is your heart pulling you to do? Share in the comments, I always respond and I love to hear your thoughts.
My "word of the year," (focus) for 2017 is Sabbatical. I need to quit working (ironically it is all self imposed/unpaid work) and focus on my health and healing. My illness can only be recovered by rest and God knows I have not rested the last 2 years; I have used every ounce of strength as it came to produce something. Ahh, regrets. I could be better by now if I had rested. Maybe. Maybe not.
Back to the now. Do what you can now. Now I can do better as I know better. Time to write and take care of me.
