Digi Scrapping All Night Long

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Wow its been a while....

As you can probably tell I decided not to go back to designing and really focused on getting my education finished. I can happily report that I am now a graduate with a Master Degree in Business Administration Management. Now I just have to find a job. LOL

I am still scrapbooking and have started to look at CT positions that have some leniency in them. Meaning I don't want to have to create a layout everyday and submit it to 20 galleries in order to partake in the CT ya know. I want to be able to commit my time without worrying about committing my time. I want to enjoy the process of being part of a CT not stress over it. I enjoy scrapping, it is my outlet, my way of getting away from the stresses of the world. I certainly don't want to make it a stressful situation as well. I think that would be defeating the purpose. I want to be able to get a job and still know that I have the time to commit to the CT. I guess that is called responsibility. I have a strong sense of it. I believe that if you commit to something you need to commit whole heartily or not do so at all.

Sort of like my new commitment to health. While I am certainly not becoming a health guru, I just want to loose some weight, tone and form myself back into what I see as a healthy individual. I am not looking at becoming a size 0 again like I was in high school and when I got married, I would be happy getting to an 8. I just want to feel good again and be capable of taking a long walk or walking up a mountain side without feeling like I am going to pass out from the exertion of the activity. Wish me luck and patience as I am not good with patience. When I workout hard, I really would like to see immediate results and that just isnt going to happen for me in this endeavor. I think slow and steady will win the war certainly is true here but can I keep to that slow and steady pace? It certainly has not been true in the past, I tend to hit the road running and then run until I'm about to pass out and quit. So patience will be my goal with this stage in my life.

Speaking of goals, I have taken on the goal of finding my word for the year. Have you ever really thought about this? Okay so maybe I was way to into the book "Eat Pray Love" because I was about to head to Italy when it was released and I was so excited, but I truly believe there are a lot of life lessons within the pages of this tale. One of the things spoken about was words that describe. Such as the word for Italy was Sex, the word for Sweden was conformity, the main character was asked what her word was. She was unable to come up with a word that described her in a way other then writer, wife, girlfriend, friend. What she needed was a word that described her personal journey in life not what she did for a living or what she was to others around her. It made me think about what my word would be and like the character in the book I am unable to locate that word. I have decided to attempt to find it. It must be hiding here somewhere in all this mess. I am sure I just stored it away somewhere and can no longer find it. You know how you put something somewhere for safe keeping and then forget where it is. I bet I will find it where I least expect it. Maybe I can try on a few words and see if they fit? Does it work that way? Can I try on a word like a pair of spectacular shoes or a great Coach purse? Lets say I like the word "spontaneous" or "energizing" maybe these are words I would like to be. Does it work that way or do I need to actually already be that word and not know it yet? I guess my journey is to find that out. Will this require that patience again that I spoke of before. Maybe I should try on the word patience......... We shall see.
