Taking the Next Step

If you have been keeping up with my blog, you know how my mind is all over the place. I think that even without fibromyalgia....and even if I were 20 years would be impossible to
to all the things I want to do. As I told a friend, it's as if I had been shown a box of crayons and asked to choose my favorite colors. "They ALL are my favorites" I cried as I grabbed the entire

To say "yes" to every interest and to every possibility of adventure will make one very, very well stressed. All those things can't possibly be important, or even fun for me. I took

Apparently, I am not so good at being accountable to myself.

My coach is Sheri Gaynor, and I recommend her to anyone who is feeling lost and in need of
finding clear direction. I tried to copy her newsletter to my blog, but that didn't work.
Here is her link:

I have come to realize it is this accountability that allows me to get things, ART, done. If I am not accountable to someone, forget it. I just spent some time writing about this. I need to set up someone, like a coach, to be this person for me. What a coincidence that you are writing about this.

I am sure you have heard "There are no co-incidents!". I hate those types of remarks, as to me they are a sign of "not thinking".

Thanks for getting me to your site Mai-Liis -- This is Susie Monday in Pipe Creek, near Bandera and San Antonio. I think your assemblage, collage and doll works are quite distinitive in voice, and your web site is beautiful. I know how hard it is to make choices when all 64 (or 120) crayons seem just too tempting. I will add a link to your site on my blog!
