Curve ball & a giveaway
Have you ever felt overwhelmed with life? Wondered just how on Earth you can get through a day? A week? A month? This has been my life this year. I've run from one thing to the next, trying to stay on top of it all. On top of my business (keeping up with blogging, staying up on orders, creating buzz, working on my identity, and my education, and my passions, bookkeeping, and on and on...), on top of my family calendar (soccer, dance, camps, musical theater, music lessons, and on and on...), my church volunteer position, my home, my marriage...the list goes on.
I went downstairs to get my two middle kiddos (4 and 5) for lunch on Saturday, and discovered that my 5 year old son had just cut off 8 inches of my 4 year old's hair. She cried when she realized that she no longer would get to wear braids, ponytails, or buns for ballet. But what I've realized more this year than ever before, is that life throws you curve balls. My pre-schooler's teacher uses a phrase, "You get what you get, and you don't throw a fit." I love this approach. When life is different or harder than you expect, you have to figure out a way to change things up and make them successful for you.
One of my biggest downfalls is organization. I'm just not good at it, as much as I'd like to believe I am. My life has started running me, rather than me running it, and so I've just been running around completely frazzled. :/ I decided it was time for a change. It was mandatory. I prayed about it, and I researched. And what happens upon me? The most incredible Mind Organization program. I have been looking over it for the last several days and just started implementing it, and I already feel so much relief. And lucky me, I have one extra program to giveaway to someone that could really use it. So if you are interested, send me an email at joannataylorphotography at gmail dot com. I am closing entries on 9/15/10. Put Mind Organization in the subject line to be entered!
So take that curve ball, change up your life, and rock it. Just like my sweet Lulu did. Isn't she adorable?
