pushing myself a lot lately. A few months ago I decided to work on
launching a new business that I already knew would demand a great deal of
time and energy from me. I knew that it would take extra effort on my part
to prioritize, organize and keep my focus as I learned new skills while
honoring my commitment to living a balanced and fulfilling life.
the inside looking out, its been a bumpy ride. Every time I get one task
accomplished, five more items instantly appear on my to-do list. Instead
of focusing on what is getting done, Im busy stressing about what isnt.
I find myself up against the relentless and cruel taskmaster
within who is never satisfied with my progress or accomplishments. Even
my dreams, lately, are filled with chaos and confusion making it clear
that its time for something to change.
head injury, my solution to challenges was to simply try harder.
That usually seemed to do the trick, until I exhausted all my
reserves of energy and ended up with a sinus infection, bronchitis or some
other ailment. I guess, in truth, trying harder was a short-term fix to a
deeper problem that was rooted in being an unrealistic perfectionist.
Quote of the Week:
"Where so many hours have been spent convincing myself that I am
right, is there not some reason to fear that I may be wrong?"
- Jane Austen
Where in your life are you trying to
convince yourself of something that you know in your heart is not true? What
are you so afraid of? How about letting go of that fear right now and seeing
"As I let go of my fears, life becomes much
simpler, and in turn, more joyful."

and Other Stories
by Barbara Kingsolver
Kingsolver manages to capture much of the very essence of the
human existence in our culturally and socially backward world (and country).
This is a collection of short stories that each deal with the
frustrations that average people face in their desire to lead normal, quiet,
decent lives. Frequently, her personages are 'different' in some way and
their frustrations are compounded in economic, social, cultural and
sometimes just personal ways. And the power of persistence, love, and
respect is frequently what combats those frustrations. None of these stories
are loud and angry, none are suspenseful or thrilling, but each is softly,
powerfully moving and thought provoking.
Kingsolver presents her characters in ways
that pull in the reader, leaving the reader as an ally, quietly rooting for
the protagonist. I always recommend Kingsolver to other readers because she
can enlighten you without you even knowing it!
