It’s been a while, I know, I have no excuses, I just get caught up in the ‘Busy’.
Well I’m back and here are a few things that have kicked me up the butt, and are getting my plans, and work, back on track.
Winter is always the busiest time for Indigosky2Knit, it’s something I hope to change over the next 12 months so that my summer orders equal my winter ones, but for now, yes people surprisingly want more knitted goodness in winter. With that influx of orders comes my hibernation, my not leaving the house because I have all these lovely things to create, and Christmas is looming (along with Small and Teeny girl’s birthdays) and I want to make them all the things too. I put unnecessary pressure on myself, I curl up in my ‘Troll Cave’ and stay there for days (quite literally).
Last week I realised something had coincided with this, this year. I generally avoid eating wheat for my own well being. I feel it makes me feel sluggish, tired and not to mention the havoc it reaps on my digestion. I generally try to eat intuitively, so if I’m feeling like eating some buttery toast, like the real stuff not gluten free, then I will. And a few weeks ago I did that, and basically haven’t stopped. I’ve kept saying to myself, well I really want it, so I’ll eat it. The amount increases and before I know it I’m eating bread with every meal, nibbling the family biscuits and not really tuning in to whether I really want it, like deep down.
Five days ago, I stopped! I said no more! I started to listen to more than my instant desire for the toast and started saying no! I already feel better inside myself. I have been able to get up earlier, I have been able to focus more and I have been more productive, not just in the creative side of my work, but in the networking, promoting and being open to working out how to accomplish my new ideas. In hand with this I stop self sabotaging all the awesome progress I have made in the last 3 or 4 months and am continuing on my path forward! Of course I will still get to eat cake 😉
One more thing I am determined to achieve, and today is a good day to start, is regularly maintain my journalling. Journal writing is a great way to find focus, clarity and to move forward, past emotional, mental, spiritual or even physical obstacles. I’ve realised a few things that have stopped me wanting to do this in the past, part of it my perfectionist ego, part of it fear and worry, but a fabulous Coach and Mentor, who I happen to personally know, has started an Intuitive Journal course for the next 7 days. I’ve started on that and will find the motivation past that time to keep on.
So, I’m back, and I’m moving forward <3
Much love and happiness.
