Life… My Friday Situation
I have been away and I have missed writing about what’s happening with me in my life. Every day, as I think about writing a post, I decide “I will do it tomorrow.” Tomorrow comes and I don’t write.
I have been reading other blogs and thinking about my neglect of my own blog but my motivation has not been there. I had to create a social media plan for writing stories and doing videos as part of my business and decided why not add my personal blog to my calendar to ensure I get something out at least once a week. So here I am.
I’m not sure what you will read here, but I can tell you it will be about my life. Lately, I have had to adjust to taking care of my elderly mom with my sister, re-launching my business, manage my mental health, keep my marriage strong and find time to be me. I’ve been busy.
I will do my best to have something posted weekly. I’m going to spend some time researching topics and telling stories about my life. I should have enough content to share :). So hold on, I will be back and thanks for sticking around and reading my blog.

Be Creative Every Day
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!

Be Creative Everyday
I am a day behind in my posting. Yesterday I took a day to rest. I did not get on my computer or Ipad but to only check for any email that needed response. But I had to take a day to do nothing but sleep and relax, My week was busy and non-stop. Do you ever take time to just stop and say I’m not doing anything? I had plan to do some art but that even went out the window. I did my radio show and when I returned home I sat in my recliner and reclined.
We have to take care of ourselves as entrepreneurs because we will work ourselves to death. I’m learning that I can’t get burned out because my business is me. So I try to take my Fridays. But I want to review my week.
I am enjoying the blogathon, it is making me accountable and I need that in my life. This week I shared some art resources along with my personal art. The most important post for the week is the legacy post where I talked about my legacy and what I will leave behind. I watched the Dr. Maya Angelou memorial and it gave me the thoughts to do the post. I shared my mentoring experience as well as my thoughts when moving into a new position. I hope you have enjoyed my post but again I love this blogathon because I know now that I can be accountable to myself to get work done.
How was your week?
