Another long delay between posts, this delay was due to the funk I was, am in…
After the passing of my cat Sage, I found myself with more time (her care was fairly involved). Instead of using the time on me, it was used getting my business ready for the final quarter, prepping my mom’s house for the holidays and getting caught up with my holiday preparations. All this busy work was a way to avoid working through grief, thinking about planning a future, that doesn’t include a business or at least as I know it now. That is how I arrived at this Funk It place in my life…
You’ve all been there a time or two, when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, so Funk it! There is a bit of wallowing, self pity, chocolate, wine, over eating, drinking, sleeping or in my case working!
I’m finding my way out looking forward to the holidays ahead and the new year and all that comes with it! I’ve started a program by Mike Dooley and Hope Koppleman called Love Your Life in 30 Days. I got the work book from Amazon and it also has companion videos from the website. I’m on day five and I feel it was the kick in the butt I needed. I also have booked a trip to celebrate my 60th birthday (more later). My total is up to 37 new things. I’m feeling good about the future and the next 23 new things!
So — I haven’t been too diligent with recording my new things. This has more to do with time management rather than lack of “things” to write about. At this rate I should have said this was going to be a monthly news letter rather than a blog…
In no specific order here are my latest new things: Number 25, I watched a video series by Mike Dooley on getting unstuck. I guess it helped as I’m back to blogging! Number 26, also in the same vein of getting unstuck, I’ve downloaded the Rituals For Living dream book and planner. I’ve used multiple planners and systems in the past with varying degrees of success but this one “Ritualizes” planning and life so I’m going to give it a go. Coming in at number 27, is a tasty food treat from the Bee Hive Pantry, a sweet potato ginger square. A delicious fall flavored offering that paired well with the hot coffee they were serving up. Number 28, I attended my first Rally For Recovery and was moved beyond words listening to people in the recovery movement share their stories, work and missions. Being an adult child of an alcoholic I empathized with what these family members were going through. Number 29, will take place on Sunday, I’m running the Gloria Gemma 5k. I’m excited to be running for this cause. Knowing so many woman (including my mother, twice) who’ve bravely fought this battle, and especially for the three friends who lost that battle. I feel this is the very least I can do!
There you have the latest, I’m pretty close to being on track, I need to be at 30 new things by tomorrow. So I better get on it!
I pray it won’t take me a month to write about it!
