Today I learned just how uncomfortable I am with chaos. It all started with a little pile of beads.

It took me a long time to find a compromise between the two extremes. But I ended up with an anklet design that I absolutely love (top). Then I used two other seed bead mixes to create two more ankle bracelets.
I still need to add clasps to the designs before they will be ready to put in my shop. In the meantime, I have learned a very important lesson.
I'm not afraid of chaos and I'm happy talking to strangers. I really love not knowing where I'm going. ~Fiona Shaw
It's not like I don't have a plan. I have a bustling piano studio. I am building my jewelry business. I am dedicated to improving my writing craft and working on it every day.
But the truth is I don't know exactly where it is all going to end up. Sometimes that frightens me. Sure, I have a picture in my mind of what it might look like. But I have a wonderful feeling that where I end up is going to be better than anything I can possibly imagine.
Yes, the my life is often messy and chaotic. But I have decided I'm going to stop fighting it. Instead, I'm going to embrace it. Control is an illusion. Maybe the secret is finding opportunities in the unexpected.
As for talking to strangers, I rarely meet one.
