Getting Ready for Change

     It's hard to believe that school starts next Thursday! It seems like my son Austin just got out of school and yet the whole summer has flown by. It has been a good roller coaster ride! Lots of travel- beach, Utah, San Antonio, Charleston, Charlotte, and lots of time visiting and learning new things. I have enjoyed the cook outs, eating watermelon, and spending time with family and friends. I have also enjoyed taking classes and learning new ways to market my business and new techniques to use in my art. Next week, we will go back to normal- whatever that is! I am both looking forward to having a schedule and sad to see free time go.
       As I prepare for these upcoming changes that next week will bring I am practicing not going into overwelm. It is a favorite crutch of mine! I gather a huge list of all the things I wanted to get done over the summer but didn't and then Boom! I go into overwhelm and freeze! This year I want to avoid all of that. I have accomplished a great deal this summer and I intend to celebrate that first. Then I will put all my new action steps onto small post a notes and add them to my action wall. This way I can prioritize and only look at one or two at a time. No panic. No overwhelm! I'll keep you posted with how well this works.
