I am grateful for all the people that have come into my life. I always think about how you walked in and became part of my story that I will carry with me. Friends, family, students, customers and just regular people. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for being part of my story. Without you it would be incomplete.
It is a new week!
Have you read 4000 Weeks by Oliver Burkeman? It has been a real eye opener for me. I have changed my mindset due to this book and feel better about my choices, goals and life. Check it out.
Have you thought about what you want to accomplish in the coming week? Have you set your intentions?
I get focused by:
: writing down what I want to accomplish. Writing it down makes it real and helps keep you accountable.
: envision yourself at the end of the week- how do you feel after accomplishing your goals? Do you feel confident?
: make goals achievable by breaking them down into smaller tasks that you can tick off. I love crossing out done tasks!
: share your intentions with someone- this will make you more accountable. I have an accountability buddy, Megan and she keeps me on task.
You can do this. You have the tools you need and if you need new tools they are out there for you- just ask.
My intentions for the week are:
- work on Smith repair
-have a GIDD (Get It Done Day) to knock out all the looming tasks that are on my to do list
-teach wonderful classes Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday!
-FB & IG posts for the week scheduled
-post December classes on community calendar
-take an artist date
-get ready for after Thanksgiving sales and events
-take lots of walks with Fred
What are your intentions for the week? Let me know in the comments.
Have a great week!
When I was little my Dad made a Gypsy Caravan into a playhouse for me. Her name was Shangri La. Many hours and overnights were spent in this playhouse with friends and family. The outside terrace is where the grown ups would have cocktails while we played. Memories for me to cherish.
When I was in high school and Shangri La was sitting my Dad made her into a ice fishing shanty and took her to lakes all over New York and Canada. Sometimes my Mom would go but I know she was not a fan of sitting on ice all day. There was always a whiskey bottle in Shangri La during this time, to take the chill away! Memories for my parents to cherish.
After my Dad died and my Mom sold the big house my sister Jane took Shangri La to her house in Esperance and she became a garden shed. Jane is an amazing gardener and she carries memories of her own to cherish.
Shangri La is still in New York but I am building a Shangri La for me in my yard in Wilson. She will be a place to create art, hang out with friends and family and to make new memories. I will share the building process as we go along.
I am so excited to be having Shangri La back in my life!
