Missing this place and all of the people that are still there…digging down pretty deep these days to find the discipline and inspiration that I cultivated while I was in Scotland. I usually tend to want to run when I get overwhelmed and this year, this fall, there is nowhere to run and no need to run. For the first time, everything is right here in Door County- my amazing job, my family, my man and our puppy. It’s all here and I get to stay, which relieves me and also gets me feeling pretty antsy.
One thing and one day at a time…always pushing myself to take just a bit of time to take a moment and do something different- like go to the beach, ride my bike, and still explore a county I really have only worked in. I have to go back to the drawing board for Door Shakespeare and do it all again…build on 2013.
Goal List for Fall:
Saving, Riding, Reading, Writing, Cooking, More Saving, Dates, Less Sugar, More Cooking, Better Communicating, Staying In Touch, Traveling, and of course, Saving!
New mantra for the post-season. I can’t believe the theatre is all packed away for the winter and I am heading back to the drawing board to put together a 2014 season…to continue building, restructuring, and giving a new identity to this theatre that has so much potential.
The company is gone, the wedding weekend has come and gone…time to breathe, adjust to the county as it empties out…time to get on the bike and also to put on my running shoes…time to seriously start thinking about financial planning and what the winter will look like…time to read, write, and stay inspired…so much to do and it all requires a different type of discipline and endurance…discipline to choose joy and discipline to stay focused and choose Joy.
Let the off-season begin…
Gotta get back in gear… Wrapping up the final details of the season and searching for some restful, restorative balance!
