I've postponed my April art show. I've been struggling to see this as a fierce move and it's hard. It feels like failure. Here's the deal: I don't have enough energy to battle the stress of a show on top of the stress of an mystery illness on top the the brain power required for a restricted diet on top of a busy tribe on top of a husbands's busy season. On top of scarily sore hands. I just don't. So rather than kill myself with a perfect storm of expectations - I'm bowing out. Which really feels like admitting defeat... but it's not. It's saving energy for the battles that need fighting.
Someone wise once told me that saying NO to something is saying YES to something else.
I'm recording my fierce moves of 2012 - when they happen. Why? Because I forget. And when I forget about stuff like that I start to leak courage. I forget that I've got it in me. I've tried gratitude + inspiraton journals and let me tell you THEY WORK. They cultivate gratitude + inspiration like a grow-op. SO. Every once in a while I might share a FIERCE MOVE here so I remember that I am very capable of being fierce.
Are you fierce, too? Share some fierce moves of your own...
Today: I have some art to photograph and some big changes to make over at LINKwithlove. Yes. Coffee, please.
