What an insane weekend. Accomplished so much.
So the weekend just gone saw the local Belper Goes Green festival. A group of girls banded together to create a space to connect, share gratitude and meet local businesses. I sold books and touted myself as the Book Fairy. It was a lot of fun 🙂 All proceeds will go towards a new venture which I am growing quietly behind the scenes.
I began the weekend deciding that I would reduce my projects down and focus on just one. But watching the perks and the unfolding of the fruits that resulted from me being involved in one project, crossed over with another project, I realised that being involved in all of them carried more good than bad. I maybe just needed to refocus.
I sat down today and realised that I haven’t cut down commitments at all. I was yet again increasing them. But maybe I can’t cut down. Maybe I am incapable. Maybe some of the projects just need one shot of work on them and then they can become something that takes care of itself. Maybe it’s mere presence is enough. I don’t have to be massively active all of the time.
I also bought some new books… which totals to 7 in 2 weeks that I have purchased. Two are fiction (travel). I don’t normally read fiction but I felt this was a good choice for before bedtime. Non-fiction just wakes me up. I finally have ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’. I’ve got two new self development books. One about manipulative people that has been on my Amazon watchlist for a long time. I do love psychology. And one about instilling confidence in my creative expression. They all excite me. I’ve sat for twenty minutes staring at them, wishing I could split myself into five people that could speed read.
I have a growing task list in my head. And thankfully an impending emptier calendar. I need many hours to sit and process everything that’s happened. I have piles of leaflets from every local project that visited us over the weekend. I have requests from people who want to discuss their projects and my projects with me. I have requests from shops that want to display my crafts. I have online shops to photograph for and build. But all I really want to do is snuggle under a big blanket, and alternate between tea, snoozing and Big Bang Theory.
The curse of the multipotential creative.
