Instead of a song today, I’m offering this wonderful, inspiring speech.
I realize that I missed my second post last week.
I apologize, my friendly blog reader, and hope that you will forgive me.
Our CreekFest event was a smashing success. (click the link to see more pictures.)We had 2000 people come through town. The Carnival, the exhibits, and all of the vendors were very well attended. After 9 months of planning, it was a great relief to see all of our hard work pay off for everyone.
By the time it was all over, I was happily exhausted and thrilled to have been a part of it all. But (and every year I have to remind myself) it takes real time, days in fact, to recuperate from the excitement of the event. No matter how much I feel like I need to get done, the simple fact is I can’t force myself to recover.
I’m in the process of trying to figure out what I really need to be spending my time doing, while letting go of the things that don’t matter so much. After my talk with my lady friends, it’s been an ever present thought in my mind.
So between recuperating and re-assessing my priorities, I’m working on getting back to my essence, the core of who I am.
I’ll be back later this week with the inspirational word of the week……..essence.
