Wishcast Wednesday...


Dear Jamie has asked us a hard one today....What do you wish to complete? What don't I wish to complete. Well as today is my birthday I am gonna wish serious today..I think....hmmmmmm. Ok..got it..I wish to complete this holiday art season (Oct.-Dec.) with great sales. I wish to get organized enough that I am focused and consistent. That the time organizer I have started stays up to date so I can focus on what needs to get done every day.

Twelve years ago, before my divorce, I was selling a bit of art, teaching some art classes to women, selling Amway (I know) and homeschooling three kids. I had a large notebook that kept it all straight..I had time (somehow) to do it..I was streamlined and wickedly organized. Here I am twelve years later and I can't seem to make myself do the organizer thing..I need it..I really do if only to schedule time for myself to breathe. I have two kiddos in school, artwork everywhere, preschoolers and after school kiddos coming and going..mostly coming, a house, a husband, bills, groups I love, the blogs..you get the idea..I am scattered. I hate that. I am used to multitasking and getting it all done..I get alot done - I do..but some days I feel like I have let important things slide out of lack of focus. So...without sounding hard on myself..I wish to complete my organizer and keep it updated and used daily...I am good at this I really am...I just need to doooooo it!! So, there it is!!
What do you wish today? Namaste, Sarah

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for herself also.

I know when I'm organized, I feel relaxed and on top of things. Things seem to flow more naturally when I have a simple structure.

Design a beautiful organizer -- one that you will love using.

All the best!

Hi Sarah,

Pretty music! We're all trying to get organized, being told to get organized then simultaneously being told we must do this and that. It can be hard to hear our own voices in the non-stop chatter of what we have to do. I wish for you to fill your organizer with the things that call out from your artist's heart.

Giulietta, always musing

My all your Birthday Wishes come true! Here's to a super Happy Birthday! I'd sing for you but you'd have to plug your ears. Instead I'm sending you some Magic Birthday fairy dust. It's windy today so I know you'll get it! :) Becca

Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.
And I hope your wish comes true. Your artwork is beautiful. I know you can do it. It sounds like you are a bit like me, you work well under pressure, when you have to do it you can.
Good luck and again Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Sarah.

Organisation is something lacking in my life at the moment. I used to be very organised; then I got my camera, and everything else gets left lol

Happy Birthday to you... (imagine I am singing the song).
Well you know what. Yesterday I had the same thought. I used to use a to do list and for whatever reason it fell by the wayside. Yesterday I started again - with a ABCD prioritisation and you know what, I actually got through some stuff. It works... Take time and make time...
And, most importantly enjoy your birthday - put that at the top of the list!

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Happy Birthday dear Sarah.

If I had a magic wand, your organizer would be done - and since it would be magic and it is your birthday - anything else you wished for would be yours.

If only I possessed a magic wand.

Oh Sarah! Happy Birthday to a sister Libra (mine is 10/16). And your wishes are fabulous! How synchronistic is it that Wishcasting Wednesday falls on your birthday?

As Sarah powerfully wishes for herself, so I wish for her too!

As Sarah so clearly outlined for herself, and wishes for herself, so do I wish for this completion as well.

Lawendula said...

happy, happy birthday dear Sarah and many returns!

Hu, I really get dizzy just reading your blog. So many things, I really can imagine that. How do you manage that?
I think, you have to take a deep breath and just start. And give yourself small treats, whenever you can tic a thing off from your list.

LindaGJ said...

Happy Birthday for one!!! You are a Libra like me, right?
Also I wish I could keep up my energy and not have fibro. Also since my birthday wasn't long ago, I wish for myself to be able to come up with something that would make my sales much better! LOL! That's such a selfish wish, but it is a birthday wish. I have many wishes for the world and of course health and happiness for all.
Anyway, I still could not get through with that e-mail, so I'm giving you mine and maybe I could reply! Linga713@sbcglobal.net
Happy Birthday again and may all your dreams come true!
Linda :)
