With the first of the Walking on Wednesday series
came a revelation.
Walking can clear the mind,
and allow for a fresh start.
It started out as a day with potential -
so much on the to-do list.
Listing new flowered Toekini's, making new ones,
finishing my inventory count
(so much inventory ~ I have so much to create!!).
|Yellow Rose Toekini's ~ sold within 1 hour of listing!|
Then, entering shipping receipts from January until now,
entering sales into a new spreadsheet.
I am now an editor for zibbeter.com,
need to write an article for IndieSmiles.com,
on and on.
This was starting to stress me.
Then I got notice the Toekini's I listed just sold!
Now to package, print shipping label, go to Post Office.
My list grew and grew.
Quickly, it became clear
that I was becoming overwhelmed.
And, for me,
too much to do means
nothing gets done.
So I abandoned everything,
got my loyal in house walking companion
and set off to just walk.

Walking started off with my mind racing,
organize workspace, then create, no then answer emails,
no, answer emails, promote shops for the Welcome Team Z group,
check Etsy Teams for upcoming shows,
NO - CREATE, then answer emails, oh, I don't know!
But then, I was out of breath ~ that hill was tough!
My mind was suddenly off my list.
Hey, what was that?
A big bird!
I too was suddenly interested in birds
like my walking companion.
And I noticed,
Bird nests were everywhere.
Or whatever this nest housed.
And this one, brilliantly built in our carport,
inside the hanging hose.

Purpose driven creativity.
To house new life, a fresh start.

My head became clear.
My mind focused.
Take the cue from nature,
and start fresh.
Walking can clear the mind...
now...what can I make for dinner?
and I gotta get that purple rose toekini listed....
and I never answered that email....
