This blog has always been intended to share my art with you as well as my thoughts.  The two cross paths all the time.  Business has been slow for me but there is no lack in things to do.  So I thought I would share 3 ways I stay busy.

1) So you find that your business is slow.  You have time on your hands. Time is precious.  Spend it with someone.  You can talk a walk, talk, encourage, share experiences and spend time talking about the great things in life.  Even in these difficult times we have so much to be thankful for.  Share it with others.

2) I just bet there has been something on your plate you have wanted to do,volunteer, research, put into action, but you’ve been busy in the past.  What better time than now!  Maybe you wanted to be creative, paint, write, or join a group.  Do it!  Sitting around worrying about what is going to happen isn’t doing anything but clouding up your mind and heart with despair.  Start something!  You just might inspire others and wouldn’t that be a great thing!

3) What are you doing with what you do have?  Instead of wasting time thinking about what you don’t have, look at what you do have.  What can you do with it?  Clean out the old stuff, rearrange the furniture, give away something you love to someone who needs a lift, plant something, get your hands dirty, go take someone’s dog for a walk, offer to help a neighbor with chores.  I could go on but I think you get the point.

We have become a society that wants instant gratification, or wants to blame someone for our situation, or wants someone to just drop happiness in our lap.  Maybe now we might start thinking about getting back to basics.  

We were not created to be remote islands.  We were created to love.  Just go ahead and put in on!  Then get out there and share it!

Who is Busy?

Okay, so I went to the Doctor the other day.  They did all this blood work.  It seems, as always, everything looks good.  No not just good, great!  I should be thrilled right?  Yeah, well then what the heck is wrong with me?  40 somethingitis?  Doc is suppose to call me back, we gotta talk.  Ugh!  I can’t stand feeling this way.

Today I went to the grocery store.  That’s loads of fun.  Spent too much on too little.  Bet you know what I mean.  I thought I would try 5 days of protein shakes, salads and veges.  Maybe that will do something for me.  I use to do that a lot, but the last two years have been….well……….busy.

That’s crap too.  Busy?  How ya doing Carla,  oh just fine, busy.  Busy?  Doing what?  Oh you know, taken care of everybody and everything and working on reaching that goal and trying to get in God’s will and and and and……..

I could not have a job for two weeks and I’d be busy being busy.

Okay, enough!  Pity party complete!  It’s time to pick myself up from my bootstraps, or filp flops, er a slippers and get on with it.  Right after my mocha vodka valium latte.  

Anyone care to join me?maxine_in_color
