Happy Sunday, friends!
I hope you all had as inspiring and relaxing of a weekend as I did, especially since my week seemed to speed by, and I didn’t feel like accomplished much when Friday rolled around.
I spent a lot of time this week working on a special offering that will be going out in the next newsletter, and writing and developing the e-course I’ll be launching next month. Working on the e-course has definitely been a labor of love. The more I add to it, the more I realize that I need to step away from the unrealistic ideal of perfection –it simply doesn’t exist. I know that just by working my hardest and creating something that I believe in, the product will be more than high quality.
Hard work is perfection, right?
This summer has definitely led me to a lot of passion projects. I get so excited when a new idea starts to take form and become something. A little too excited. Usually from a mix of nervous anxiety and pure, sheer joy. Sometimes, I reach the point where I can’t even sleep at night because I just want to jump up and work more. I’ve been trying to combat the overexcitement by forcing myself to stick to set work hours and get sleep! I’ve even been using this awesome rain/white noise app which knocks me out in minutes regardless of what’s going on in my head. Add a cup of steaming hot green tea –pure bliss.
