Ti-i-i-ime is on my side…yes, it is.
A few months ago my office was burglarized. Besides just my feelings of comfort & security, my MAC was also taken.
At that time; among other projects… I was designing a 256 page book, and I was nearly done. But this incident caused a major delay in getting it to the printer.
At the same time, we’re dealing with extremely difficult medical issues with my husband and a new job for me. (I usually hold a part-time position while illustrating part-time…now I have a full-time position while still illustrating…which is a little tougher, but still do-able.)
So, unlike Mick Jagger, “ti-i-i-ime was not on my side…no, it wasn’t.”
I know that we all feel like this sometime; the feeling of getting up just to get knocked down again.
Understandably, I did have a few extra things on my plate…a new fuller schedule, and I had to re-format a new MAC, and I had to finish a book that ended up taking so much extra time. (not without some wrist/arm/shoulder complications and making my clients wait!) I also had to change every password…and close and open new accounts….the list goes on…I’m sure you can imagine, or maybe you’ve been thru similar.
Consistent Baby Steps
With a lot of help from my husband, family, & friends…I’ve spent the past few months reorganizing, re-prioritizing, rebuilding, reformatting …and now…I am even blogging again. Just a little at a time…but, being CONSISTENT with those little baby steps, ya know?
Side note: The book I was working on is: Be Your Finest Art (J. Miller & D. McHugh).
I’ll write about it in the next few weeks… it’s a wonderful book…very encouraging, inspiring and just beautiful to hold in your hands while paging through.
