Getting in gear

You can tell from the infrequency of my posts, that I’m not getting around to this regularly. But I’m not giving up! There’s no quit in this gal (unless it comes to bad habits)!

After taking a little time to reassess my current situation, reevaluate my goals, and refocus my efforts, the priorities of life start to look a little differently to me. I used to want to follow my Id and allowed my Ego a really strong voice in that. Instead, I now breathe through my Egos’ “moments” and weigh the importance of my reactions against the long term goal of fulfilling my Id, thusly:

  1. Hi Love,

    Great personal quote from Seth Godin. And here are a couple of other similar ones:

    The day came when the risk it took to remain tightly closed in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom. – Anais Nin The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. — Albert Einstein

    But I don’t understand what you’re selling. Please help.

    Love, Dad
