Everything I Need…

I’m working on a project…something that I’ve wanted to do for years…but just Everything You Needcouldn’t quite get it all together…didn’t know how to do bits and pieces of it…was totally overwhelmed by it…and…so…I did what I do best…I stuck it in the back of the closet…so to speak…and thought that was that…

Wrong…

See…it involves…Bertha…and…Bertha…is only willing to stay in the closet for so long…before she kicks the door down…and…escapes…she’s done it before when I thought I was giving up writing…and now…she’s doing it again…

So…Bertha…is talking up the project…and…I’m getting excited about it…the only thing is…I still don’t know how to do the bits and pieces…and…I’m still pretty much overwhelmed…but…the funny thing is…the more excited that I get…the more…helpful ideas…start floating through my mind…

Bertha…calls them…inspiration…and truly they are…people that I can call on for help come to mind…I call on them…and…they would be happy to help… then I start getting unrelated emails…about just what I need to know…and… more and more…ideas…pop into my mind…

Bertha…says…everything I need is everywhere I am…as long as I allow myself to get excited and start following my inspiration…it will lead me where I want to go…and…then some…

Elephants and Overwhelm…

Lately… I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed… school has started back… Jane Carrolland… for some reason… I seem to be taking on more writing projects… honestly… I have no idea how I’m going to do it all…

Bertha… laughed… as she reminded me… I’ll do it like eating an elephant… one bite at a time…

Yeah… I threw a shoe at her…

Then… she reminded me of a time when my girls were young… they were in two different school programs… two different dance classes… and… for some reason… I took on sewing smocked clothing for others… as well as smocking and sewing for my kids… I also worked part-time at a doctor’s office…

The funny thing is… I think I got the most done that year… that I ever did… I stayed organized… I stayed focused… and… I had some fun along the way…

Suddenly… I don’t feel so overwhelmed… just looking forward to the new opportunities…
