I. I had a Journal Jam today and it WAS A BEAUTIFUL DISASTER. I had to restart three times and send out links THREE TIMES and omg. But I powered through and we did it and it was WONDERFUL.
The prompts + the steps I took to tend it are listed in the description below the replay.
II. I don’t plan on doing ten things again today, because that would be a lot, but I really love numbering these things. It lets me write about all the things that are top of mind without having to create a post that segues from one subject to the other. The number is the segue. I also love reading lists like this, and Renee is absolutely amazing at it, so go find her.
III. I am still scrambling, and I am still content, but I am aware that I really need to take tomorrow and Wednesday off if my mental health is going to hold, which means some things might be late butandalso my people always get it if that has to happen. I have one thing that has to be done asap so I don’t give a cherished friend an anxiety attack (Life Book taster! Get in there!) and then A Year Of Mary and then a full moon live for Moonshine and then a lesson for Book of Days and then putting together the guest artist lessons for Book Of Days and….
….I just overwhelmed myself.
IV. I fully own that the trauma of the last few years (decades?) has turned me into someone who fills her time with work because work WORKS for me. It feels good. It’s a dopamine hit. It’s connection. It pays my rent. It gives me a sense of purpose. It fulfills me. BUT. The way I fill my time with work means that one wrong move, one emergency, one quick trip to go look after family, one little thing means I’m in dire straits.
So that’s gotta change.
V. I will be celebrating my birthday with people this year. That is guaranteed and I am very excited about it.
And that’s it for today, love. I’m going to collapseyheap now that I’m only one post behind my desired thirty for this month.
P.S. I fucking LOVE Beautiful Disaster, which is why my Journal Jam cards are made on this deck of playing cards. I am not an affiliate. I just love everything they do and I own a bunch of their clothing.
