I know, that was a scary subject line. But the car accident I was in earlier this year is really where I have to start.
Maybe you've noticed (most likely you haven't) I've been missing from your inbox for a little while. These quasi-regular newsletter/pen-pal updates haven't been happening quasi-regularly. No videos, no blogs, very few updates on the biz Facebook Page...not since May 24th.
The strange symptoms started happening a week or so after the accident...and started to change my relationship with...stuff.
Do you ever feel like your life is just this constant amassing pile of stuff? Stuff to do, stuff to organize, stuff to figure out, stuff to take to Goodwill, stuff to clean, stuff to make, stuff to schedule, and stuff to be sure not to forget???
And somewhere along the line you start to feel like all of the things you have to do to maintain all this stuff has you feeling like a hamster on a wheel, just putting one foot in front of the other, but truly never getting very far?
And does this stuff even MATTER?
And somewhere in the midst of juggling all the stuff you feel like you've lost focus of what's REALLY important to you and how you REALLY want to feel because juggling stuff takes so much energy that you just don't have time for one more frappin' thing...especially self-actualization.
Yeah, it happens to all of us. Getting of track is usually slow and sneaky. If it weren't, we might not let it happen so much.
And then, something big happens: a hurt, a loss, a betrayal, a big change, a car accident - and it forces us to shift our focus and energy onto the things that are most important, because we just don't have the energy for much else. We have to drop some stuff.
Will the guilt and shame sneak in? Will you ever be who you used to be? Will you continue to kick your own behind for not continuing to juggle all of the stuff?
These parts are up to you.
In my latest article (link below) I tell you more about my car accident, all of the stuff, how getting back on track, most of the time, doesn't look like what we think it should, and talk more about procrastination, percolation, and picnic tables (what the ???).
It's good to be back,
THE CHEEPS! Our backyard chickens.

TRIBE. A RETREAT FOR MOMS. CREATED BY MOMS.
Moms (and people who know Moms...this would be a GREAT Mother's Day gift) it's COMING!! Still ironing out some details for next Spring's retreat (April 27-29, 2018) so stay tuned to these emails to get in on the EARLY BIRD PRICING ;-)
Procrastination, Percolation...and Picnic Tables? I was in a car accident May 24th on I-170. You know that section of highway heading south that's 2 lanes, no shoulder, and WALLS on either side? And you have to choose between 40 E or 40 W? Right there.
I was chugging along at 60 MPH getting ready to head west on 40 when I realized, up ahead, the left lane heading east was at a complete standstill and the guy in the lane next to me, about a car-and-a-half length ahead, was plowing right for the stopped line of cars.
