Happy Sunday all! Beautiful day here in Raleigh, NC.
My handyman, Dave, has been on a mission trip this week. I decided to pick up a paint brush and work on staining the deck renovation myself. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL. Being outside AND accomplishing something is a the best feeling!.
I've been listening to old books on YouTube, mostly Deepak Chopra, while I work. It's kinda like a working meditation. Just me, nature, the brush and Deepak spilling his wisdom. I needed to hear a lot of what he has to say. I've been noticeably not writing for a few weeks. I became overwhelmed with the rules of successful blogging: write daily or 4 times a week, always include beautiful pictures, must have a catchy title, make it relevant but original, etc. etc. etc.
I love this quote from Deepak:
"If you focus on success, you'll have stress. But if you pursue excellence, success will be guaranteed."
Ever feel like your focus is disoriented? I do. I did. It is particularly difficult when I read so many of your great blogs.
I think my focus is sharpening.
I'm looking forward to posting next week.
Thanks for listening, folks!
I'm so blessed to have such a lovely community of friends.
