Do Women Do Too Much?
Are Women TOO Busy?
So tell me, do you take time out for yourself? Are you too busy or do you think things are great the way they are? Do you even have time to ask yourself these questions? Do you think you should? Do you feel guilty for thinking about "your" needs? Is there a story about YOU that you are neglecting? Do you cry alone?
So many questions hey? Well I think it is important to ask them of yourself... TODAY!
I confess that I go back and forth with it all. Some days I think I want to be lazy and so I am. Other days I know I must buckle down and get things done. The difference is being aware of who you are in each minute. Be aware of YOU and embrace yourself. Create goals and decide which ones are truly important to you. Create a 1-10 list. If some goals don't make a 10? Chuck them and choose to smell the roses instead. It is that simple.
Do you know what TODAY IS?
TODAY IS YOUR BEGINNING.

TURN ON SOME MUSIC FOR AMBIANCE
Take in a little serenity... breathe
VITAMINS ~ take 'em - Ladies~ be kind to YOU and take your vitamins!
Don't forget to take your vitamins!! There are tons to choose from with varying degrees of potency so be sure to check the bottle. Life Extension is a really good brand.
Minerals are very important! I really like the Life Extension brand too.
Do you have any hobbies?
I've been painting since I was a little girl and so I call myself an artist. It took me a long time to say that to people and I am not really sure why exactly. My hobby became my profession I guess. Art is great therapy so whether you draw or write or cook or whatever.. do it often!. Pictured is one of my paintings, "Love You As Much As i Do" 36x48 oil on canvas available in prints and giclees.
One step at a time right? We have to learn to pace ourselves. I finally figured out how to make my own UTubes so I have been posting them in my lenses. This YouTube is of my sculpture series "Bleeding Wings"

eBay is Great too for supporting each other as women
I usually add Ebay to promote women artists. These are BUSY women who are doing it all!
Be Who YOU REALLY Are
Don't pretend to be happy if you are not. Be honest with yourself so that you can begin to fix it!
Here is a poem I wrote about a women who said she was happy when she was not:
"I Captured Pictures of Eos Goddess of the Dawn and Saw That She Was Weeping"
I captured pictures of Eos
Goddess of the dawn.
I spied her
and despite what she might tell you
that she no longer frets for love
she was seen weeping
by my companion
In honor of romance
I slipped out of my clothes
and spread them on the sidewalk
chalk lines my missing presence
if you had not noticed.
I see pretenses
at least within my own measure
and that might be the cost of loving
I am a faery queen
and Eos knows me now.
In the afternoons I meet up with her
and I listen to her pining
this sacred goddess
longing to know
In honor of our friendship
I blessed our meeting on pieces of the sky.
I placed an alter among the sleeping clouds.
There I lined up rows of tiny boxes
placed a votive candle in each
and lit them with the flame of a dragons tongue.
Along the wispy vaporized path
I placed a thousand poems
to be understood by everyone
who has ever longed for love.
Within the sentiment of the night
I held a vial of blood
remembering days of yore
graves were meant for visiting.
Magic bares a special curtain
best selling Goddess tarot cards
tis not up to me to fold
or leave that hope open.
I will wait on the seashore
hope each passer by takes it in
as a dove meets the wire
no longer sleeping nor forlorn
meeting some sort of peace.
I am a fairy queen
I say it cause I want to be.
I breathe in the circumference of the moon
once in awhile
it smiles back at me.
Unlock the door to creativity
that's the goal of all artists.
Open the doors and let it fly
Find that world of fantasy
that was soo real when we were little.
Goddess of the Dawn
I spied her
and despite what she might tell you
there was love left under her pillow
as the clouds floated by.
