It's been a strange week-end.
I will spare you the details, but a bad date, a mild case of food poisoning, and Mother's Day were involved.
And it hit me like a ton of bricks that I am my own worst enemy.
I am still processing all the data; I haven't quite figured out what it all means.
But there's one thing I know for for sure.
The Universe is trying to tell me a thing or two about where my priorities should be.
- My family.
- My physical health.
- My work.
And where work is involved, I've got to figure out a better way. The "tripod" of music teaching/beading/writing is wearing me out, yet I seem to get farther and farther behind as the months go by. I can't work any harder so I've got to work smarter.
Because the only person I can count on to take care of me is me.
I have some great ideas that I must make time to explore. While I'm at it, I need to learn how to ask for help when I need it.
And I need to purge my life of toxins - negative people, time wasters, chemicals.
Because they are sucking the life out of me and I need all that energy for JOY.
Danielle LaPorte posted a great article several months ago which included a declaration of deserving. I copied it down and intend to spend some time mulling it over.
Because I want what I want, I deserve to have it, and SO DO YOU.
Let's stop it with the self-sabotage. And claim all the good things that are there for the taking.

A bit of housekeeping:
I added 1217 words to my revision today, for a total of 10,794. Fellow ROW80'ers, how are you coming along on your WIP's?
And our online book discussion of To Kill A Mockingbird is scheduled to begin Friday. Who is with me?
