I'm darting around today. Cleaning carpets. Putting laundry away. Writing in my journal. Cleaning up dead chicken off the patio (lucky Racoon). Wishing the snow would not turn to mud so quickly. Breathing in and out super deep so I don't freak out that it's March already - that Artfest is in a scant month off, that I am due some (potentially) big news on Monday, that one of the ponies turns 15 tomorrow and I have no idea what to get her for her birthday. I'm off to my last guitar lesson for a while because i need my calender more open for preparing to teach, and for the Master Food Preserver's program I've signed up for that's available here only every other year. (So, so, so excited!)
I've been whittling away at solidifying my teaching schedule for 2012 and got swallowed up in wedding plans and forgot to let you all know what's going on. I'm going to share each one of my retreat offerings in depth soon but for now, check out the left side bar to see where i will be teachin in person. I'm developing new online classes for the coming year and look forward to sharing those with you when I have them all figured out.
So, this year so far has been all about consciously shifting the way I relate to my work. It's been all about choosing timely action from faith and trust over fearful procrastination and the anxiety that naturally occurs with it. It's been all about giving my energy only to that which calls to me and speaking words of truth and kindness to myself. It's been about releasing any frantic fear that I have to keep people interested or I'll blow away. (Already I've been released from the stronghold of trying to keep up with the Joneses in all their various sheep's clothing.) It might take me the whole year to settle into just what calls to me, maybe longer, but I'm enjoying the ride much better. And guess what I'm finding out about myself? I'm finding out that I don't like putting things off just because I'm not sure the best way to approach them. I'm finding out that...
P.S. Please, oven-fixing fairy, come fix my oven so I can roast veggies again.
