Life is hard and wonderful; I guess that's how it goes for most folks. This running a business thing is an incredible opportunity for growth - to realize where my strengths are, or, more importantly, aren't. This past week was challenging. I think it was Sunday night that I was so stressed out I couldn't do anything but lay over the couch and throw a blanket over my head, like Linus, only without the Christmas cheer.
And this week is busy, too, but I'm reminding myself that for the most part these lows are met with some pretty great highs. And that where there is no failure, there is no growth. And that if all else fails Whole Foods makes some really great chocolate products in their bakery section.
I took some time a couple of days ago to take some photos just for me. Nothing fancy, just trying a couple new things, going out before sunset and waiting for that perfect light as my breath fogged around me. It's therapeutic, snapping the shutter with no one else around, (save for a few bunny rabbits scurrying around the weeds). I think it's okay to give myself a time out and do things that fill my well. I may not understand why it makes me feel better to write in my journal and take pictures of myself even with a bad haircut, but it does, so I do.
