I’ve been crazy busy lately, so the time has come to walk my talk, to slow down and conserve my energy for what’s important.
- Setting up my design site
- Setting up a facebook page for my designs and art
- Setting up my witchy site
- Setting up a facebook page for my witchy site

- Adjusting my about pages to better reflect who I help
- Hosting the October Creativity Challenge
And now I’ve got a cold. My body’s way to say enough is enough. So from now on, you won’t see as many marketing messages from me. I’ve decided to focus on speaking to people instead because that’s what I like to do. I’m also setting aside studio time for my artwork and forcing my husband to help with the housework 🙂 I’ll still be there when you need me. I’ll still be blogging, writing newsletters and all that. Just not as much as I have been the last few weeks.

Sounds like you do need to take a break, Linda – hope your cold’s better soon 🙂
Yes 🙂 I’m sure it’ll only be a couple of days (and it’s not that bad). I only get a cold or two per year, and they don’t last long or put me in bed.
I hope you’ll feel better soon! And good call for slowing down – funnily enough I’m in a similar spot right now, but then we’ve always had a lot in common 🙂 It’s great that we can rely on our own warning mechanisms these days, and there’s no danger of a complete burnout!
Yes we have 🙂 The problem usually is listening before it comes to this. It’s easy to ignore, especially when we have a lot to do
We have to take stock from time to time, and prioritize. Hope you’re feeling better soon!
Yes, we do. Thanks 🙂
Taking time for yourself is much needed. I did over the summer, and it was so refreshing! Hope you feel better soon.
Yes it is 🙂 I preach about it all the time. Thanks
Very nice, Linda. I can feel how deeply you’re breathing into this.
Wishing you a peaceful weekend. 🙂
Thanks 🙂 The same to you
I really hope you are feeling better soon. It never fails. Our bodies let us know when we need to slow down and take care of it. Its a little message its tired. = )

Thanks 🙂 That’s true. We just have to get a bit better at listening before it gets to this level 🙂
I also get colds or the flu…that’s my body’s way of telling me to slow down too. Little does it know though that I can’t slow down. I’ve driven the kids to school with a fever!
It sounds like you have some great projects in the works. I wish you all the best with all your projects and remember to take care of yourself in between!
Thanks for sharing this post with us! Hope you’re having a great weekend Linda!
Thanks Corina 🙂 And thanks for organizing the Every Woman Weekly
I am there with you chica! I was so exhausted last week I slept until 1030 am on Saturday morning! The one day I don’t try and wake for 5 am to hit the gym is when my body usually does it on Saturdays, but not this Saturday!
It’s great that you prioritize what’s vital to getting done. The rest you can get to later. Always listen to your body to! Getting sick is definitely a sign that you’re doing too much! Take care of yourself! (I need to listen to myself as well, you’re not alone!)
Thanks 🙂 I’m glad you got some sleep. Listening to your body is important. I just need to get better at doing it sooner 😀
