I had a very interesting, and I must say, cathartic reading by my astrologer, Elizabeth Hermon, yesterday. She took one look at the list of everything that's going on in my life right now and told me that some things need to be put on hold and some things just need to be released. It's interesting that the things she highlighted are things I've been mulling over during the past few weeks. Things I've been ambivalent about for the past few months but just haven't stepped back long enough to evaluate objectively. There have been so many changes this year that I guess I haven't slowed down long enough to look at my life holistically. I just kept layering on more and more projects. As we talked through the different areas of my life, I started to really gain clarity around what's working, what isn't working, and what I want.
Spring 2013 marks the beginning of a 2-year cycle where I will basically restructure my entire life so it's time to really start managing my time better and focusing. No more side projects, no more tangents, no more chasing bright shiny objects, no more squirrels. Elizabeth was very clear about the fact that I need to devote more time and energy to my fiber / textile art. She was also very clear about the fact that I know everything I need to know and that the planets don't support participating in another mastermind group.
I woke up this morning and felt as though a huge weight had been lifted. Don't get me wrong, I still have way too much going on but the suggested changes will definitely start bringing my life back into some much needed balance.
