projects: MAKE LIFE GOOD

  I attempted to keep my summer simple by only taking on 4 new projects.  I have a tendency to think I have all this time when the summer arrives, I try to accomplish 10 things, and ultimately they all crash and burn! This year, however, I learned from many years of mistakes and frustration! One of my four projects is an email marketing course that I began late this spring. It has been particularly challenging and has really stretched my brain! After a few weeks of the class, I felt like I was on to something good! For some reason when this happens, I go into procrastination overdrive, get really anxious, and basically experience a mini breakdown. After going a little nuts, I am able to start coming up with something! For me, the most challenging part of the class was figuring out what I truly value, and working forward from that. I kept thinking it was celebrating, celebrating life, celebrating the ordinary, celebrating what's different, etc. ... None of these felt completely right. I felt like what really mattered to me was floating outside my body, just out of reach. While driving to Starbucks one day, it popped into my head! "Make Life Good". My brain just flooded with inspiration. This is why I do what I do. This is why I love doing what I do. This is something I would love to talk about. Taking the ordinary, or even the bad and turning it around. Elevating everyday! With this in mind, I am very excited to share my inspirations, projects, what's new, and everyday life with you! This putting myself out there in this way is completely new and is something I've been wanting and needing, but honestly has me pretty freaked out! Wish me luck!!

Have a great day!
