Shift happens

When things SHIFT big time 

There's nothing to do but roll with it 

And see where it takes you.

I'm going through a massive shift in my business right now,

And I never thought I'd find myself here.

Sure...

It's exciting

And thrilling

The Second Best Time

There are times I'm really hard on myself.

Take the call or hang up

Picture the scene.

Lunch is finished.  Toys scattered.  Kids asleep.

This was when I would get out my computer or journal and work on whatever idea was evolving at the time.

You can't just completely ignore it.

And what I found was the more I picked up on whatever idea landed in my heart or in my head – the more they kept coming.

It was like I had a new best friend kept whispering in ear.

And sometimes the message wasn't meant for me.  Sometimes I was too busy.  But I always take time to answer the call.  Even if I put it on hold or hang up completely.

So, what ideas have been calling you lately -- and are you listening?
