Who am I?… Where am I?…

By on September 18, 2012

There’s a part of me that has been wandering around saying this all summer in a slow, slightly southern accent for some reason. I suspect that at some point in my life I saw it in a movie, read it in a book or that it was part of a television show… Twilight Zone? Gilligan’s Island? Oh… maybe I Love Lucy!

At any rate… I’ve been confused, especially about what to do with blogging and my business/job/career.

It’s was a busy summer and really flew by. We finally got our house listed and it’s officially on the market.

The broad strokes… Em had a great summer. Swimming nearly every day and somehow managing to teach herself to stay afloat without ever putting her face under the water. (The floaties in this photo were gone for most of the summer.)

As for myself… I’m working on my Etsy store. I’m a total convert. I had my own online store and never really got any traffic, but on Etsy, it’s all built in. I had 4 sales in the first month and just got a custom order. Seriously, it makes a difference. I recommend it to anyone who’s been contemplating it. Do it now before the holidays and get some fans. Let me know if you do!! Or if you already have a store… Here’s mine: .etsy.com/shop/rockpapertree

This is one of the items in my store. I love making these.

While it’s difficult to be in between homes, I keep reminding myself that I don’t have to put everything on hold until I’m “settled”. Especially since I know by now that that elusive state will most likely never exist to my satisfaction.

I’ve wondered if I should stop blogging because I need to spend every extra moment and available brain cell on things that might lead to income. My productive time is limited of course.

In the end, I decided I didn’t want to give it up. There’s just too much of my self in it. I like this place I created and I don’t want it to disappear. It’s a sort of playground for me and a place for me to meet up with old friends, new friends, and friends I would have no other way of ever getting to know. I can’t imagine my life without the people I’ve met because of blogging.

And then those few people who said they looked forward to reading my posts or that they missed me, cinched the deal. Thank you for that, by the way.

I need and want to spend more time designing, creating and filling my Etsy store. Then I want to reclaim the part of me that can share light and love and healing energy in the world. I aim to start doing massage and energetic and shamanic healing work again. Not in any major way, just to do it.

I’ve set myself a challenge of not doing it for free. This is a big topic that I’m sure many of you can relate to. It’s hard in any kind of healing work and it’s hard as an artist. It’s important for so many reasons, but mostly it’s my way of sending a message to the Universe that I’m ready to receive. And although they don’t know it yet, I have a few sisters and friends I’m planning on asking (coercing…) to come to me, pay me and help me get the flow started. Oh, they’ll get a good deal.

Beyond all that, I’m writing a screenplay and getting fit.

So, I may not be sure who or where I am, but I have a very good idea of what I’m doing and that will just have to be enough for now.

    Hey, you:) Just today I was thinking about maybe doing a post myself. But the thought had passed by the time I got home from the grocery store!

    I am so excited to hear where all of these things take you, and I’m glad you’re choosing not to disappear from this space completely. I wouldn’t blame you if you did, of course, but it would be a loss for me. Love to you as you take these exciting steps!

    I’m so glad that you are keeping this space. I don’t think that there is one blogger that hasn’t thought of giving it up, I’m glad that for the bloggers I’ve fallen in love with it has turned out to be a passing thought and taking a break was all that was needed.
    “Especially since I know by now that that elusive state will most likely never exist to my satisfaction.” Ditto! And, how wise!

    I love the items in your etsy store- I wish I could afford something right now, but money is tight- someday though! I will someday! I love the sword pendants :)

      don’t I know it! I can’t buy anything either. I just keep favoriting things in other stores that I love. I’d love it if you just “heart” things you like anyway. It makes me happy and I think it’s good for business.
