It's OK to Take a Break
I am back. Finally!
I know I have been absent from posting on my blog for a few weeks. And thanks to so many of you that reached out looking for me. I have just been buried with commissions and a new focus and unfortunately this blog was the one thing that was put on the back burner. I am sorry it happened but I needed to free up some time in my day for a few new projects.
I am sorry that some of you weren't happy with me. The important thing to remember is that it is ok to take a break. We all need to shuffle things around and change our priorities from time to time. In fact I encourage you all to challenge yourselves. Stop for a minute and evaluate how you spend your day. Are all of your priorities aligned? More specifically, are you spending your time doing the things that are most important to you? If not, maybe you need to make some changes.
That doesn't mean you need to give up anything. Maybe you just need to change how much time you spend on your daily tasks. I am not giving up this blog, rather I am going to commit to posting here three days a week, instead of five. I have a lot to share with all of you and I just need to get a little better at how I spend my time here. You would be shocked if I told you how long it takes me to write a blog post. It's way longer than you think!
So no more long breaks. I promise. I am here to stay. Because my life as a working artist is more crazy than ever. Go figure.

I knew you would return, you stay commited, thats who you are. I too have learned to focus more on the present, recovering from surgery makes that happen.
So glad you are back, was concerned about your welfare. So sorry you received negative comments. I'm just thankful you are back. I agree you do need to set your priorities in line with what works for you. 3 times a week is awesome but I would be grateful even if you could only post 1 per week. So glad you are back and that you are setting your priorities, this encourages me to keep my priorities in line too!

Girl! I am so glad to know that even YOU take breaks!! I know you work harder (and smarter) than anyone I know. So I'm quite relieved to know that you are willing to shuffle some priorities to make the important things happen. I know it will be golden in the long run!! It's been fascinating to see your other projects steaming right along - I just imagine you've got something fabulous coming up! Cheers, dear one!
