If there was one headlining takeaway for me from my time away, it's that my focus requires just as much thought, intentionality, machinery and precision as anything else that I craft. I learned that focus isn't fleeting, it's the result of a considerable amount of preparation and care.
How empowering it is to consider that I am only a victim to my feelings if I decide to be.
What have I decided to be or do today? tomorrow? the next day? in light of where I am going.
What have you decided?
The last few seasons, I have put my all into every endeavor I could dream of or join in to. And while some were fruitful, most failed and failed hard. So there is also the element of learning to trust myself and keep trusting myself. There are many more failures to come. How do I know? Because I'm overflowing with ideas! Thus, beauty of PROCESS!
