Diary of a Plate Spinner  

Friday, May 28, 2010

Remember that episode of Sesame Street where the guy did the act spinning plates on the top of sticks? It must have made an impression in me because that's the image that comes to mind at the beginning of every weekend.

I work my job. I make jewellery and work on our Etsy shop. I am writing a novel and frequently feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. And I'm trying to be healthier, using bribery to get myself to work out on a regular basis.

Plate 1 , jewellery - spinspinspin. Plate 2, novel - spinnyspin. Extra hours at work, exercise, trying to see friends - spin spin SPIN! Oh, first one slowing down, must spin ....

Everyone feels this way, right? Sometimes it feels like there is no down time and if I didn't love the crative parts so much I would feel I have no life at all. But it all goes back to the ultimate dream, the goal listed in our profile.

That house in the country where I will be able to work full time at writing and jewellery and the creative stuff that I love.

    I think we all feel that way at times. I hate the balancing act we have to perform everyday just to keep up, but that is life. Every once in awhile a plate drops so you sweep up the pieces and move on.

    Hope you have a Great Holiday Weekend..Do something fun just for yourself.

    As you both know, I love this analogy! (although I must've missed that episode of Sesame Street!) Ever since we first talked about this, I keep coming back to it. I find it really helps to keep me from getting overwhelmed - after all, you really only have to focus on spinning one at a time (as long as you keep moving!)
