What do you wish to let go of?

These past few weeks the feeling of overwhelm has been always present. It was a constant companion through the set smile and even leaked to some of my posts (or lack of posts) here.
I felt like Alice´s white rabbit: I´m late, I´m late, for a very important date. No time to say Hello, Goodbye. I´m late, I´m late, I´m late.
Time was vital and I didn´t have enough.
Then Tammy Vitale posted: Ahá! What am I making an excuse for? What is the real focus? What is part of my list of "should"s? I took a good look at what I was using my time for and what I wished for time for.
By the time Jamie asked "What do you wish to let go of?" today I had quite a clear idea. And you can read what other wishcasters had to say by clicking on the original post here.
I need time to make art for ART EVERY DAY MONTH during November. How do I get some extra time from my life as it is now?

This is going to be a real surprise.

I´m wishing to let go of my Facebook account for the month of November. I will still be posting on my Paula - Buenos Aires page for The artist´s way updates and some quotes for you.


Next month I´m letting go of my art class too. My goal was to learn some specific techniques and I did. Now I´m bidding time, staying just because the teacher and classmates are nice.

Wonderful wish and so great that you have recognized what you need to let go of and why you have held on. As Paula wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

Overwhelm...that is a sneaky one! I struggle with that one myself. Yuck.
As Paula wishes for herself, I wish for her also. Have a wonderful, peaceful day Paula!

A good wish... I let go of my Facebook account last month and have not regretted it at all. As you wish for yourself, so I also wish for you!

what clarity you have gotten! And the art class issue I could see in many areas of my life. I hope the transition for you is a beautiful one.

Well you obviously knew you were going to do AEDM cause you're #2!!!! on the list. I'm totally impressed!

Looking forward to a month of AEDM. That letting go of FB for a month isn't a bad idea either! But maybe I'll just go of Zuma (esp. since I had so many nice comments on something that was a bit of a downer to start with today).

Thanks for the FB shout out - I wouldn't even have seen it if I hadn't come over to jump with joy over AEDM being here soon (my FAV time of year!)

Thanks for your comment. I may look into the christmas fair idea. If not, a friend is looking at doing a fair in the spring and asked if I was interested. that might be one way to go!

Oh, giving up Facebook for an entire month -- you are far braver than I am. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you.

Great quote! :]
As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

Facebook can be a real time sucker. I have limited the number of times I check it, and feel much better.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

*nods* - a wisdom-filled wish, Paula, and one I'm starting to think about myself.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you

Donna said...

Oh yeah, letting go of facebook will free up LOTS of time! As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also. x

A visitor through another from a far away place...All you write is timely and you should have fun with your art

Shionge said...
