Chasing Rabbits

Today was quite enlightening. I think I've been avoiding any sort of decision making in an effort to relax my mind. Unfortunately, it seems to be having the opposite effect. I went to my first team meeting for Pure Romance, and was struck by something another consultant said. We were challenged to write down our dreams for ourselves for the next month. Big and small. Someone said it was difficult to pin down exactly what those things would be because they seem to take the backseat to all of the everyday minutiae that we all seem to be consumed by. Then a girl said that she had not dreamed about what her life could be because she was afraid that if she put it into words that it could then be taken from her. FEAR. Ugh, it is such a force in inaction. Fear keeps us from doing so many things that we want to do, but we forget that it also keeps us from distancing ourselves from things that aren't good for us. When defining my goals another consultant said to me that goals are like rabbits, and it's hard to catch one when we run around after whatever rabbit is near. Focus on just one rabbit, and the chance of success increases. How does this relate to jewelry? Well, I love designing sparkly things and am glad that I've decided to sell my designs. Adding it to my list of jobs now puts me at 4! They are (in order of importance): mother

 sexuality educator

 jewelry designer

 cupcake maker

Somethings gotta give.
