Everything Will Be OK

I can't quite put my finger on it but something is making it difficult to blog, work or facebook.  :)
I move the keyboard and mouse over a little and Murdock moves over a little. lol I just love him.

It's been a while since I've updated.

It seems like things went so smoothly for the past couple of years and then in the last two months, it's been one whammy after another. Nothing disastrous or painful. Just a lot to digest and absorb.

I have realized this week how little art I've done over the past...oh probably year...and that has got to change. I can feel the extra stress in mind, body and soul that comes from the lack of creative release. I so want to find my niche and create things that would help us financially, as well as giving me some relief from stress and a spiritual release. I have a few thoughts brewing so hopefully soon, very soon, I will start creating again.

I've been pretty busy the past few weekends. A couple of Saturdays ago, I led a SoulCollage workshop. It went really well. There were about 13 folks there that were attending as part of the Healing Through Creativity Festival. We had a good time.

Last weekend we went to WV to visit my family. I hadn't been home in over a year! My cousin and I recently connected on Facebook and she had some days off work and wanted to meet me there. We hadn't seen each other in years and years. Aunts and uncles came, my brothers were there and of course Mom and Gary. It was truly wonderful. Such a fun weekend.

The past couple of weeks we've been launching a new product through our service and it's taken a lot of my time, learning it and executing it while still keeping up with the regular service. There were a few hiccups but we're slogging our way through.

Patrick and I have been regional managers (mostly Patrick but I fielded technical questions and listened to venting sometimes) for the past year. Last night, we got a call letting us know that the position (nationwide) is the end of the month. That means that we have to come up with a substantial amount of money every month to make up for the loss. The problem is, we just gave up that same substantial amount coming in last month we are again. It has almost become funny. We just laugh and say, "everything will be ok"  because we know it will be. 

It always is.

Hang in there! I know how you feel though, my life feels the same, like its trying to kick me out, (well at least Im moving!)
I also have to say that I am feeling the same about art, so I signed up for Willowings, free online art course art heart & healing, (check out my blog for the button. Figured a four week course where you create your own art would be helpful to get me back on track. Keep it up!

Faerie Sage, I was tempted to take Tam's class. How generous is that? She is such a love. Hmmm I'm even more tempted now. I'll head over and take a look. Thanks! Good luck with your move. I hope it all goes smoothly.

Winterwood, thanks so much for the hugs. Good way to start my day. :)

Dede said...

Hang in there Lisa it will get better! Wishing you a creative day!


Healing Woman said...


You and Patrick have a great attitude! Because of that attitude, things will change and...change is growth.


Lisa said...

Dede Thank you! A creative day is just what I need. ♥ Hugs are good, too. :)

Cheryl Thank you! I agree that change is growth. Who knows what could develop? :)

you are right - everything will be ok!

Love Leanne

Lisa said...

Thank you, Leanne. I'm so glad you left a comment. Besides being encouraging, it led me to your wonderful blog!

I think our cats have the right idea when they sprawl all over the place claiming everything as theirs. Take lots of nice cat naps, pamper yourself and breathe deeply. Everything WILL be alright, it just gets a little bumpy in the road sometimes. Ask Murdock1

Lisa said...

For sure, Wendy. I know Murdock's been through stuff we can't imagine. But life goes on and gets better, even for rescue cats! Yay! Thanks for this reminder. (and very timely as he just scratched (barely) and hissed at me for the first time while I was petting him)

Lisa, I hope you are able to create soon. Don't worry about the outcome of the creation...just do what you love and calls deepest from your soul. It will lead you exactly where you need to be. Blessings sister...and let your heart guide you.
