Life is just like a roller coaster! Sometimes you are up, sometimes down and sometimes just going round and round!
I did a PowerPoint presentation yesterday for my speaking engagement at Emerge Event 2014 where I am going to be presenting about starting and building our Poppie's business and lost it. I started redoing it again last night and got to the 3rd slide and my screen froze. I couldn't even use the escape command. I had to hard restart. I only lost one slide that time, but I am not feeling the inspiration to do it again yet today.
As I sat trying to convince myself to get with the program I realized that life really is like a roller coaster for sure. You never know what is beyond you a few feet. You may feel like you are going to come crashing down and scream your lungs out, or you may have the thrill of a life time just waiting around the bend. Then there are times when are going through something like me and my presentation right now, when you are just doing things over and over again.
These times are very frustrating I certainly agree. It seems like it may never end. I was having a hard time getting my inspiration back for the creation of this piece. And you know me, I am the Chief Creative Officer, so it is my job to stay inspired right?
No wrong! I have to admit that life is far easier for me when I am inspired, but the bottom line is that every day might not be inspirational. This is something I have had to learn as an Artist and Business woman, that the very times I feel like doing the least are the times I have to push through and "Just Do Something Anyway"
You may be experiencing these same things in your life and your business right now. Not knowing what to do next. You have a dream, but the dream seems like it is fading into the night. You feel like you are losing that passion and spark, not only for your work, but also for life in general, because you just keep going round and round. I totally understand I have been there more times then I care to admit, but the bottom line is that sometimes we just have to hold on tight and go around one more time.
Even when we are feeling at the lowest point of the ride we have to "Just do Something Anyway". It is amazing how you can instantly change your state by picking up a paintbrush, writing a blog or editing a few pics to add to your Facebook page. It instantly transforms my state when I follow my own advice and do something that will bring me forward in my life or business by a tiny small action.
So my friends when you are feeling like you are going round and round and round and can not see the end in site, just stay the course, and "Just Do Something Anyway" and the thrill of your life may be waiting around the bend. But you will never know if you get off the ride, quit and give up.
