Way Too Much Going On

06.20.15I am not the only one to feel overwhelmed with the number of things on my daily list to accomplish. The inability to keep-up results in constantly feeling  disappointed. There are just too many very interesting, enchanting, mind-widening, entreprenuerial things to do in my everyday.

It has recently occurred to me that what is most important, is to live a beautiful life. It is my mission.  With this in mind, my blog is back in action – a soft reappearance.  Join me on my path of reducing expectation, with it’s resulting disappointment and increasing presence and  joy. There are bound to be significant changes along the way.

My first hurdle is realizing my inability to successfully run three businesses, stay healthy, and have a beautiful life –

Got some thinking to do, come along and lets see where we find ourselves.

What can you change in your life to add joy and diminish disappointment?

    I love this! Deeply here with you. I spent the last year doing a lot of outer things- traveling, running a business, working on a renovation- and now all those plans are playing out and I am living them with a long and big to do list. And I just want to go in. I want to hibernate a little, get at my center- find peace and balance. I am right there with you sister! I have a lot of thinking to do and a lot of clearing, letting go and not thinking.

    Crispina, I totally get where you’re coming from. You’ve done so much for so many, and for so long, it’s not surprising that you might feel stretched kinda thin. There’s nothing wrong with taking a breather! We artisans and entrepreneurs seem to have a hard time giving ourselves a break. It’s so important to take a step back and take a look at all we’ve accomplished (in spite of the crazy expectations we place on ourselves), and give ourselves a pat on the back. Have yourself a foofy coffee drink or a really great glass (or three) of wine, and have a beautiful day today! It’s raining like crazy here in Beverly, and I’m going to do whatever I feel like doing…all day long. <3

    You are definitely NOT alone!! I am also searching for balance in my life. I expect so much of myself and can no longer accomplish what I used to… all in a day’s work. The heart and mind say ‘YES’, but, the body is not so willing! I am wishing you the best and eager to make this journey with you!!
