Which step do you wish to take?


When I read Jamie´s question this morning I was stucked. Step? Which step? Where do I want to go? More places togo to? I´m on the verge of being overwhelmed with all I´m taking on board as it is.

I read a couple of posts. All steps forward. I want to do this, that or the other.

More? Where to?

I left it simmer before I could do my headless chicken thing. (Headless chicken layout belongs to a UKScappers class)

Then, as it always does, it hit me. Not forward. I want to take a step BACK.

A step back to see what I´ve accomplished this year. Matu is finishing his academic year tomorrow and he has passed all his subjects at school (second year of secondary school in a high performance school). Tati will be finishing in two weeks time (year 4 at same school) and her grades are brilliant. I have supported my hubbie both in his business life and his sports achievements. I have taken care of my family, having them watered and fed. ;) I´m about to embark on a mega baking and crafting season which I am ready for. I have scrapped and lead my team to a decent place. I have met and developed relationships with many cool on line artists (yes, I mean you, you know). I have started to exercise again (even if I skipped it today *blush*). I have learnt new techniques. I have participated in inspiring and soul nourishing projects like the Wish casting Wednesdays, Full Moon Boards and Art Every Day Month.
And most important of all, I HAVE SHOWN UP.

A step back to breath in deeply and move forward with a smile. :)

I took some time today to read back over your posts for the past few weeks. You HAVE been busy and shown up again and again. Bravissima! So yes, take that step back and admire all that you have been apart of. You deserve it.

Sometimes that step back is all that is needed to show you what you have achieved and set you off in the right direction.

From what you have posted on here Paula, you have achieved an amazing amount this year - well done you.
