Life Organizer

I ordered this book, The Life Organizer; A womans guide to a mindful year, before I had my epiphany on self care and it is amazing. Jennifer Louden has written a fantastic guide. I think tomorrow, the 15th will be the last day for this offer but if you buy the book from her website she throws in the DVD for free. If you are thinking of buying or have an interest its a great deal . go here to see more on the book.

Vision Boards

Monday night my women's group made vision boards. I decided to do one on this Angel book idea that I have. The whole board is just different kinds of Angels to inspire me to move forward on this. It has room, for more but its a good start.

About 15 years ago a psychic told me I would write and illustrate a children book. It kind of floored me at the time, I did not feel I had any artistic talent or writing ability either. So I have spent all this time taking art classes, exploring mediums, reading up on writing techniques but not really doing anything about it. Then I got the idea of using my daughters childhood drawing as the illustrations. Over the years I have been told by many about the book I am supposed to write. From one reading I even got some more information. I have also been told that the book has been written that I just have to let it in. Now its just conquering the fear. I don't know why I just don't write it. I was told the main character was a boy and I wanted it to be a girl so I have resisted that. I was even given an idea of what it might be about and I resisted that idea too. Th doubter in me wonders if the reader just gave her ideas and by focusing on that I am just not going anywhere. I know its a lot of blather and excuse. So I have pretty much decided this is the year I will tackle the fear and begin work on this. The vision board is the beginning.

I am trying out a new blood Pressure medicine and it hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday. It makes me so tired, I just want to sleep all the time. I hope that adjust itself to my system soon. I had another acupuncture treatment. I love how I feel so great after it, so relaxing. I go again next week and then I will wait awhile.

You should go for it. It's easier said then done. Going for writing. I know...but you should do what is in you to do. I hope the meds that you are on for blood pressure works and doesn't interfear with anything. *Hugs*

Good luck to you with your book - that's always been my dream, but I've always feared I don't have the talent, the whatever - but you do - and you have psychics telling you to - I hope you go for it Kate!

I feel I MUST write my book soon, or it will be too late. I have the safe fear of beginning...although I have begun several times and just stopped. How stupid is that? But so far, I just can't do it, yet.

Love you, Kate.

For YEARS Kate and I mean YEARS I have wanted to write and illustrate a children's book. When I was working all those years co-workers, bosses and friends were always telling me "you should be writing a children's book" response "I've ALWAYS wanted to but..." and I'd have these excuses. The real one was fear...fear of rejection and fear of failure and fear it wouldn't be good enough. I've allowed all of that to squelch something that has always meant a great deal to me. You are inspiring me to STOP and tackle my fears too...THANK YOU!
