Each morning as I run, I get all of these awesome thoughts about blogging and the things that I want to tell you about and then by the time I get done, in the car and back home, all of the dang thoughts and ideas along with the sweat has dripped away. Sorry, that was gross but true.
I do remember that I wanted to tell you that we just kicked of July with a new word for the Documented Faith class and the word is Authenticity.
Personally, living/working/creating via this blog, social media avenues and in live workshops, what you see is what you get with me. I strive to be authentic with my life and what I share but at the same time, I still have to remain respectful and maintain a certain amount of privacy for the sake of my children, family and friends. That sounds like there is some exciting sort of scandal, controversy and drama I am hiding, but there isn't. I mean, hey, we all have our personal & family junk but nothing you are going to hear about on TMZ or E!...
Anyways, as I was saying, staying authentic is a constant practice especially in the world we live in today. Between social media, television, advertisements and the media, if you don't have your ducks in a row, a certain amount of confidence and things pretty hunkered down, that is when crap happens. It will happen and it does happen and the best thing to do in situations like those is to identify it, claim it, figure it out and learn from it. It is hard, sometimes humiliating but necessary for a positive outcome. Staying focused, aligned and centered or your authentic self will feel more like being on a merry-go-round that is off its axis.
Now since I am being authentic, I must tell you that I have to go. I have 1001 things that I need to get to which includes a trip to Wal-Mart, the Eye Dr. because I CAN NOT SEE, laundry, meal made and froze for my family while I am gone, projects dropped off to Sizzix for the Summer Paper Arts Show and some very important and exciting things Fed Ex'd off so that they can be...
Dang, that is all that I can say BUT I am very excited and ready to share with you what I have been working on...For now, I must go take a shower because dang it, I stink.
Have a very authentic day!
