If We Were Having A Glass Of Wine…

  I would tell you my week has been emotional. But with the emotion, it has been good too I should say. I’m learning to balance two businesses so scheduling and time management has become super important. 

IF WE WERE HAVING A GLASS OF WINE I would tell you that grief is a funny feeling that will creep up on you in ways you don’t see coming. My mother celebrated her 89th birthday. We had cake and ice cream and gifts were given. I then took a photo with my mother, sister and niece and all was good I thought.  My sister and I rarely post family photos or our family business but living in this world 89 years deserve a little attention. So I thought I was fine looking at the photo but I wasn’t. The next morning I woke up crying. I could not stop. That photo was missing my middle sister that passed away  and all I saw was the empty space. It hit me right in the heart. But it showed me that even though I push myself doing work and filling my time with stuff, when grief hits it will stop you in your tracks. It threw my whole day. It was a hard and emotionally day for all my family. 

  
IF WE WERE HAVING A GLASS OF WINE I would tell you I decided to rest and enjoy the quiet moments because I am emotionally spent but this weekend I will do something that makes me smile and just relax. I may have to work because two companies require time and commitment. 

Happy Holidays and I will talk to you again soon.

If We Were Having Coffee…

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m doing some major changes for the new year. I want 2016 to be a good year for me and my family. This year has been hard on me and I’m just now moving ahead with what I need to do.

Beach imagesIf we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m tired and I need a vacation. But because I’m building a business, a vacation is not on my books right now, but I do plan to have a beach vacation in 2016. I feel I’m running on empty most of the time, but sacrifices have to be made to have two businesses.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m looking forward to some down time the last week of December. It is the only way I can start my new year with a fresh perspective. I have things I want to do, but in order those things to happen I have to be physically and emotionally fit. Christmas

If we were having coffee, I would wish all you a happy holiday and a great new year! I hope you have enjoyed our coffee time!

Day 3 of #NaBloPoMo

  Well I’m really struggling to get this challenge done. I need to get a plan and stop flying by the seat of my pants. I’m committed to the challenge and process so in the coming weeks I hope it gets better.

I work at a Coworking space called Orange Coworking. This is where I get work done and spend time around people. I’m going to spend time planning out my topics. Actually I started this “if we were having coffee…” I think I may just stick with that. 

I apologize for the rambling. See ya tomorrow!

Day 2:National Blog Posting Month 

  Okay so I missed day one. I had signed up for National Novel Writing Month but as the time got closer I could not decide on what I would write. On Saturday, I came across the NABLOPOMO and after chatting with another blogger, I decided this would work better for me.

Yesterday flew by before I new it day one was gone. Not sure what I will write but will most likely be about my day. Maybe. We’ll see everyone tomorrow.

If We Were Having A Glass Of Wine…

  I would tell you I had a good week but I’m feeling drained right now. I work at a co-working space called Orange Coworking! It is a wonderful place for me to meet people and get a lot of work done. They celebrated their six-month birthday with cake and prizes.

  I started off the week with our Monday Morning meetup at Orange. It is a group of entrepreneurs who discuss and brainstorm ideas or issues brought to the table. It is a great way to start the week. 

If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you that I’m balancing two businesses. It’s hard but I don’t have to return to a job I would not enjoy. I like controlling my day and being free to work the way I choose. So I’m not complaining just have to figure out my down time because I’m always working or thinking about work.

  
If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you I attended a E-Women Network Wisdoms Circle. I was a bit nervous at first because I didn’t know what to expect. But I learned a lot and I left with tools I can use to grow my business. The women were great and we were able to connect in the fact we all had one challenge we could get ideas to help us move ahead. What I like is you present the challenge then the other women give you ideas. You cannot speak during this time. You then take those ideas and use them as you see fit. I’ve got some work to do! But it’s all good.

  

If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you I think I’m finally relaxing on the radio show I do every Friday morning. It’s called the Breakfast Club. I have been a co-host for about at least four years but it takes me a while to feel comfortable in order to show my personality. I have to trust others and my surroundings. I live “on guard” all the time.

  
Well, I think I have drunk at least half of the bottle so I will see you next week. Have a great weekend!

Frustrated

  I’m writing this because I have whipped myself into a frustrated state. I have been on a art journey for the last two years. This morning I decided to sketch and I want to learn new things to draw besides flowers. I went on to google and put in the search “how to sketch a simple building” I do buildings but they are very kindergarten. I want to draw adult pictures.

I found a simple building but to save my life I could not see the shape visually to make it look close to the building. I wanted to cry. Still do. So I have taken a break and now I’m thinking what to do. I can’t afford classes so I got to make this happen myself. I know practice is the key but I could not see the building visually to practice.

  

  
Anyway I’m not giving up I was just surprise how much I worked myself up. What do you do when you get frustrated with something you are sketching or drawing?

Thanks for listening…

If We Were Having a Glass Of Wine…

  I would tell you I had a great week. I have started a new business so I’m focusing on building it and making it successful along with my first company. 

If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you about the fun celebration at my Coworking space called @OrangeCoworking. They celebrated their “half birt” with cake and good giveaways. Got to know people through the random factoid we all had to tell. Mine was how I wanted to be a motorcycle cop! It’s quite funny being I have never held a gun let alone shot one nor have I ever road a mototcylcle.  

 If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you I thought about my sister that I loss in January. She was my middle sister. Sometime the grief is overwhelming and lastly

If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you Ujima Magazine had a wonderful seven year celebration last month. We shared memories and stories about the magazine. Thanks to everyone that supports us. 

  
Well I think I have finished the bottle of wine so I will see you soon to share another great bottle of wine.
