October Check-In and Summery Report

October Check-In and Summery Report

October was basically a month long struggle with anxiety. It is kind of ironic because it coincided with me releasing my Can You Really Have it All? Series. I think it ended up being a reminder and love note to myself. Sometimes while writing my blog posts I am really giving myself some much needed advice that I think can benefit other people going through the same things as well. I by no means have it all figured out. This whole work/life/kids thing is really fucking hard.

While going through the editing process of that 3 part series, especially the third part, I had the realization that I really needed to start slowing down and take care of myself. It isn’t really a work/life/kids balance if I don’t fit myself into the equation.

If they well is empty then you can’t fill other people up with the things they need.

The biggest and best thing I did for myself last month was to try floating in a sensory deprivation tank. It was glorious. 90 min of silence to let my thoughts just wander where they wanted to go. I would describe it as meditative but I have never really meditated so I can’t be sure. But I would recommend this to everyone--even it the thought makes you feel claustrophobic or afraid to be alone with your thoughts for an extended period of time.

Be Thankful It could always be worse and It's funny because its true letterpress printed greeting cards

I spent the bulk of my “work”  time last month dealing with house issues. (In, case you didn’t know, I am building a house from scratch and a few things that I thought I had solutions to kept popping up as issues I had to solve and resolve due to no fault of my own.) It’s probably why I was so stressed out. I hate fixing something only to have it keep reappearing. When I am done and have moved on, I don’t like to start over again. Give me new problems, and struggles to figure out any day, but never the same thing over and over again.

I did manage to get through a few things to keep my business goals going with all the other obligations and tasks I had on my plate last month. So here are the stats:

Plan for November (now that it is half way over!)

I have a new business idea that will become the umbrella company for Bunny Bear Press that I am playing around with. I am starting to figure out how to make it work and what I should focus my time on. I have one more semi-marketing mailer planned for this year which is a fun Holiday card. I am also still working on my Big Birthday Card release which is going to be happening after I move early next year!
