Ignoring the dirty dishes in the sink and the laundry that needs to be put into the dryer and taking some ME time to share the bliss. I have just...
1. Run my first 5K in 33 minutes this past Sunday!!! Totally happy about this and LOVE running now!!! I used to ski this distance a ton, but something about being 36 and running it was BIG for me! I've also lost 13 pounds and counting along the way so...YAY! I'm a RUNNER!
2. I registered for my first Squam Online Workshop. I can't make it to Squam Arts Retreat (Squam Lake, NH) because I'll be teaching, soooooo I treated myself to an online workshop taught by Alena Hennessy, who has done work for Target and ABC Studios (to name a few). This is a limited workshop and I got in! Loving it! I can't wait to start! Can ya sense my excitement? I have my supply list ready to shop at C.C. Lowell. :)
3. Will be meeting with a published children's author for a small workshop at the end of the month. I get to bring my supplies and pick brains and all that fun stuff!
I'm not writing this to brag, so please take heart. I have had my up's and down's along the way and sometimes I felt like I was just going around in a circle...see pic. above! The same path over and over. It tends to happen to right brained people. But, when the time is right and in odd ways that I can't describe, all of the pieces start to fall into place. I say let the spirit move you and do what you love! Take a class and learn something new. Treat yourself, be aware and go with it.
Now to the dishes, don't love those...ARG!!!
