This week dragged. Anyone else, or is the cheese standing alone on this one? I mean, I did manage to write + publish two (yes, folks, two) posts this week, by far the most I’ve done in a long time. And I had an interview on Wednesday for a position in the marketing department where I currently work, so I was pretty consumed with putting together my presentation for that. But not for nothin’, this was a long freakin’ week.
I did my nails this week, though, so that’s something!
I’ve been trying to make up my mind on a few different paths that I want to take and I’ve been dwelling pretty heavily on that. I tend to get stuck in analysis paralysis if I don’t just make a move and make it quick.
My car? I decided I liked it, wanted it, could afford it, and bought it in a matter of hours. What kind of planner I want for 2016? I’ve been belaboring over the perfect one (Emily Ley, Get to Workbook, DIY my own!) for months. Among other things I won’t get into now.
I feel like I can finally get back to helping other people. This summer was just…I don’t know, but I had no desire to blog. The freelance work I do was half-hearted. I made no progress in moving forward in a business of my own. But I finally feel like I can start helping other people again.
That’s what I really want to do: be a helper. Everyone has a beautiful story to tell and I want to help them share it with the world. And I want to help them share it with the world so they can make meaningful connections along the way. I want to share a story of a business in a way that people want to go there. Or introduce two people because person 1 has a need that I know person 2 can fulfill. Now they’re happy. Look, I made that happen!
That’s what I want to do.
That words are as powerful as the emotions behind them. I think a lot of people forget just how strong a weapon words are. Use it wisely and kindly.
From coffee to beer…which is probably why I’m getting so introspective right now. I’ve found I hit a very happy buzz and get all kinds of reflective after about half a beer if it’s been a few hours since I last ate anything. Mental note…use this to my advantage.
Also, I am not writing this on Sunday morning. I am out with my aunts doing an Ovarian-Cancer-benefit 5K. I love the magic of scheduling.
On lots of coffee.
