A Week in the Life

Have you ever had a week like this? Everything starts out smoothly, your guys give you flowers for Mother's Day...

and then make you a steak and shrimp dinner on the grill (yes, they made shrimp ka-bobs themselves!) to eat outside on your newly finished deck and patio furniture that you also got for Mother's Day...

But somehow, despite all of that, you end up like this by Wednesday...

Thankfully, Linda and I met last night for coffee and she talked me down a little. We meet at least once a month to make sure we are making progress on our goals, and we actually realized last night that we ARE!!! Yippee. So, now we have to make some more goals...mid-year goals...which is awesome, because by mid-year last year I had forgotten that I had ever made any goals to begin with! Hey - if you're an artist and you're trying to get to the point where you are showing your art on physical walls, as opposed to cyber ones, or to progress in your journey a little...I highly recommend you find a buddy. No, strike that...regardless of who you are or what you want to accomplish in life - find someone to journey with you. Someone giving and caring, but also able to smack you upside the head and challenge you a LOT (thanks, Linda).
We did something yesterday that was a major step for both of us, that I'm not quite ready to talk about yet...I'll talk about it on Tuesday...but I can almost guarantee that neither of us would have done it if we hadn't made the other do it. Good grief, that's a rambly sentence. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is we all need a true friend - a friend who isn't afraid to tell you something is a load of well, you know, when it is and who is able to encourage and motivate you through your moments of psychosis. And we need to be that kind of friend, too.
So - here's how I'm feeling today...

Yeah...I'm chillin'...
Peace...
