be careful what you wish for…

be careful what you wish for, because it just might happen! so yesterday i found myself impatient. it was starting to feel like i was just waiting. waiting to move, waiting to hear about the artisan search. it started to feel like everything was a month away. so… i decided to kind of take the day off, at least in blog world. i was stuck in my blog, and i was stuck in the art journal i was trying to finish for the artisan search. and i was not getting any packing done either… one month seemed so far away.

deep breath…

i realized that i was trying to rush through my journal. so i decided to stop and take a deep breath. the reason i was getting so frustrated was because it was not a true reflection of me. i was simply trying to rush through the pages instead of taking the time to think and let it all sink in. art journaling requires that you are fully present, which is possibly why i love it so. i spent the day working on my journal and really thinking about the layout and what i wanted to say. it helped so much. i only got a page and half done, but i feel good about those pages, so i am happy! and i do still have until sept 13, so i am really focusing on what i want to do.

then…

later in the day, i found out that we actually might be moving sooner than i thought we were! what!?! yes, our landlord said we can move out at any time. soooooo… that means i seriously have to get my butt in gear now! finish my journal, plan for classes and start packing! talk about craziness. so i guess my impatience was not relevant. i just need to focus on what needs to get done and let everything else fall into place. be careful what you wish for…
