Yes, I have been MIA. Bad writer, Summer! Well, I do believe in writing daily as I think it is the most eye opening and healing process for mental well-being. For me, at least. So, while I didn’t post any blogs last week, I did write in the short windows I had available. I already brain dump enough on this blog and I’m sure you didn’t need my extra rants. Yes, my mind has been swimming!
I was in Utah at The Draw Shop HQ with our most fabulous team and the productivity was at an all time high. Erik and I have been praised frequently on our efficiencies, our roles and our ability to keep a team highly motivated and invested while also being able to start new ventures.
The reason: Mistakes from the past. Lots of them. Each of us had our fair experience of doing things the not so right way and if you’re smart, you learn from those. We’re not ones to make the same mistake twice.
And so with selling a house, getting ready to move, planning a wedding, launching a new venture and also starting another high-impact endeavor, the momentum of life continues. There are super energetic moments of life that require a lot of you and your power – whether good or bad and then there are the more quiet, relaxed flow moments when the answer to what’s new is not too much. For a while now, life has been fast paced. A day doesn’t go by that there isn’t something majorly propelling a project forward and it’s crazy good.
But, during those times, while the stress and pressure may be motivating and inspiring, there is still need for down time. Overwhelm can be bad but it can also be good and while I wouldn’t shoot any of it down, a recharge is needed. And I got plenty of that this weekend. Reconnection with me.
I took long hikes, I cooked, I organized, watched movies, caught up on reading, made dents in big projects and overall, I got lots of sh*t together so I could have a clear mind and stay ahead of all the big things coming up in the next months and even year and it felt really really good.
Will it last through Monday? Who knows…
