I'm back... in some form.

The migraine is still lingering, but today I'm going back to work, and I'm going to do my best to work through it. I've never had a migraine last more than a day and I hope this is a once in a lifetime occurance!
I have spent so much time in bed over the past two days that I thought I might go crazy. I'm not one to sit around, not one to put off creating. So, I'm back. And I have some work to do! I wrote an article on Balance, and it will be featured here sometime this morning. Please keep in mind that it was written in the midst of a migraine. But hopefully it has some good points.
I will be adding a links page to the right sometime today. Links to my radio interview, my articles, etc.
The migraine was a good reminder to me... of what happens when I internalize everything. When I stress and don't talk through it. It eats me up. So far, my one resolution was to be a do-er and not just a planner. So, now I add resolution #2... breathe, and talk through stressors, don't internalize them. Lesson learned. Now to apply it.
I do get caught up in being wonder woman. I think I need to do it all, be it all, and all with no help, no counsel. It's time to face it. I am not wonder woman. I can have help, even delegate if help is not immediately offered. I am not less if I ask for help, and I can talk things through. I learned by doing the Artist's Way that there are always people that you don't open up to (the crazymakers, remember?), but I do have a good sense of whom I can trust. Who I can just vent to without unloading my stress directly onto their shoulders. That's another aspect of it... I don't want to weigh someone else down.
So... two resolutions now. Yay for me :-). I'm so glad it's Friday. I have a lot of picture sorting to do this weekend. And I will take more photos. Always creating. Onward.

so glad to hear you are feeling a little better. I must tell you, i am so excited for you and your vision. You really have strarted an incredible journey and it's so enjoyable to be ale to come to your blog and share it with you. I hope you know, I am one of those peeps you spoke of. My door is always open.
Feel better- weekends always help. :--)
and the "asking for help" thing.. I was/am to a degree still guilty of that. Maybe we are not wonder woman, but i think we like things a certain way. I ask for what I dont mind being different, I still do the particulars. Does that makes sense??

im glad your feeling better too. i felt like we did not speak forever when you were in bed. you have inspired me to always take time for me and to never be afraid to ask for help. you have been my insperation to bring out who i am and to realize that i am not wonder woman. i finally realized that after being a mother and wife for 13 years. i am finally okay with asking and expecting help and come to realize that holding on to feelings with destroy you. i am so thankful for you and your brother who i can count on to listen to all my problems life throws my way. i have your package ready to go. i hope you enjoy my new hobby :)love you
