Some of you may already know, but most of you do not, that my dad had to have a double bypass during open heart surgery last week. I want to share with you, my family's experience and talk about the importance of knowing your body and selfcare. I hope my dad's story helps some of you.
We are gearing up for warmer weather and deciding what craft shows and festivals we will be participating in. Shows that were cancelled last year are moving forward with plans to welcome people this year. We will have booths at few select outdoor festivals and markets this year and it made me wonder how many of you will be getting out this summer to enjoy the warm weather, the sounds of crowds and carnival rides, the smells of fair food and baked goods? Or will you continue to stay home and use your computers and phones to bring some of those sights, sounds, and smells to you?
Have you ever thought about doing something and then though, I'm just to old to start something new? I feel like every time any major changes have occurred in my life, my first thought was, I am just too old for this. What have you missed out on because of similar thoughts? Let's change that way of thinking together and jump into the possibilities.
Have trouble getting a moment to yourself? Too much on your mind or too many things to do? Me too. So what do we do about it? I don't pretend to have all of the answers but I want to help you take a breath.
