Busyness is not a reason for not getting other things done.
It is an excuse for not claiming your true priorities. — Alan Cohen, author
Sometimes this is easier said than done. Take this spring, for example. In the same month I had two separate (delightful) house guests. I had my day job. My community chorus was not only fervently rehearsing for our two spring concerts, but we were also in the process of interviewing prospective conductors to replace our beloved outgoing conductor. There were also my other ongoing commitments: My food coop shift. Farm share food to cook. Cleaning. Laundry. Feeding my neighbor’s cats twice a day while she was on vacation. Bills to pay. My yoga class. Art to create. Blogs to write. Social and cultural events to attend. And of course, sleep — which I desperately needed.
In the middle of all of this, I had to complete my work shifts for the artists’ cooperative I belong to, frame my artwork, and hang my show. And I did it! The spring show was my third show with BWAC and I am so proud of myself for managing to participate yet again. And this time, it didn’t take me as long to hang my artwork. I am making progress!
