I'm here.


I'm here.
But not all the way.
I'm in a comfortable, dreamy place which is proving pleasurable and yet I'm also going forward in the areas that feel important to me. For 2009 I'm really wanting to stay connected to enjoyment, fun, and pleasure. I am in the habit of putting many "should's" before pausing to enjoy, so I am trying a different way! I'm slowing down the voice in my head, and prioritizing enjoying my life. I believe myself to be thorough, timely, and on-top-of-it so I'm pretty sure I will accomplish the things I want to. Hopefully with more joy and relaxation.

Deep, deep contented breath...
...and another...
