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. :)
