I have to say, i thought i was going to be sunk this week with stress and deadlines and anxiety. With so much to juggle, i didn’t know how i was going to do it. But as I’ve put God first, and helping other people, it has been an incredible week. I start the day with Simple Abundance and scriptures, and writing in my journal. I’ve been able to be more focused when i’m working, so i’ve actually gotten more done in less time than i thought possible.
I got the chance for a girls’ trip down to Dallas with some awesome OKC ladies. I’ll post more about that soon. But i’ll just say for now that it was WONDERFUL.
The reason i’m blogging is something i heard said last night. Jasmine Star told us…
“If you’re losing passion for something, RUN the other way.”
I don’t think i could ever lose passion for shooting. I adore it. It’s my life-blood. It’s christmas morning every time i download my card.
But blogging has always felt like a “have-to,” just like laundry piling up…. it’s never done! And then it’s always hanging over me of something else i should be doing but i’m not. We all have too many of those already. But I love writing.
So here i am. I’m blogging. I am not running away from my mouse, but i’m running away from pretense. I’m running away from an unreal demand for perfection i impose upon myself.
I release myself.
To write as much, as little, as silly, or as random as comes out of the tips of my fingers.
Just pure me.
And it feels SOOooo good.
Happy Thankful Thursday everyone! 🙂 🙂 Hugs, amber
