After an amazing weekend at the World of Faeries Festival -
- I am so full of ideas and have the feeling of NEED in regards to getting my business into order. We are on a new path, one I never thought I'd do. One that has changed many things. Including what products I sell and which ones I need to provide.
I didn't think it was possible with the income I make, that it was possible for ME to handle! So many little things to get into order, so many people to give my energy to....but it was so F U N!! I felt satisfied with my work, like it served a purpose, aspiring little girls to be artists as they watched me paint, and then older adults sparked by inspiration to pick up the brush again. Wow, just wow! Did I mention the joy of little girls with fairy wings dancing about?? I couldn't help but walk around with a huge smile on my face. Pure joy.
So to the buzzing in my head I say this, I need to get you out.
I will be taking a time of leave, starting next week, and returning August 24th. I need to have time to sit and give my business some serious attention. I am always scattered in a million directions, and I am overwhelmed with this sense that I should just sit down, write it all out, and make a plan for the rest of the year. To do this I need my other busy bees to visit a different garden.
With the holidays right on the horizon, and with so many ideas to execute by then, including two more shows (Oy!), it hurts now, but will be well worth it later to take this time off. It's so scary to leave the social media for two weeks, processing orders, and connecting with my followers. A lot of "What ifs" begin to fill my head. Fear. Lots of fear that my business will suffer for it. But the doubt and fear only makes me want to do it more, as I know that is how it usually works.
The more I'm afraid of it, the more I want to go through it. Things will always be hard, things will always turn out unexpected, but if I just fly and keep my eyes on the light, I can not fail.
