If you are a dreamer, come in

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

a hope-er a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...

If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.

Come in! Come in!

Breathe!

Aw the New Year, a chance to breathe after all those hectic holiday's.

It's time to relax, settle into the New year with all those resolution you know your not going to keep the moment you write them down. Time to sit out on your porch in the chill morning air, a nice cup of french blend coffee in one hand and a chocolate covered croissant in the other; a pen tucked behind your ear and a notepad on your lap. All the time in the world to do what ever you want to....
Did anyone have that kind of a New Year?!



Or was your New Year exactly like mine? Rush, rush, rush and just in case you didn't catch it the first three times RUSH! Christmas is over time to clean up the mess, its the New Year here is list of all the new things we're going to do and they have to be done immediately; don't ask me why! but they do!!
I barely managed to get an hour in to write my story, I barely managed to snag a computer to write this post. Not to mention my sis and I have blog together (we started the blog to document your journey into movie making...we haven't made any movies yet) and she is now starting college so I have to take care of the blog almost by myself. I realize recently that I know too many people who own a blog and want me to contribute! My poor fingers can only type so much!
Majorly STRESSED!


Phew!
After the first two weeks of the year people around me finally started to see things the way I do. It's just another year not the end of the world, things don't have to be done within the first month....at last things have settled and I now have some breathing room...and writing space.
That was a close one. So for the sake of keeping this blog post short I'll get to the moral of the story. "Don't have a heart attack with all this rushing!!"

Just Breathe.
Xoxo

P.S how is your New Year going?

  10. wow. Absolutely love the design of your blog - so pretty!!

    BTW Thank you for the amazing advice on my blog, you are completely right. This is what caused my WB in first place, i picked up some writing books which were all about outlining being the only way and it totally freaked me out and stiffled me.

    My NY was rushed too, so close to xmas you feel you barely recovered lol. So i agree 'just breathe' is great advice :)

  14. I'm really with you on this. Inspiration and resolutions are not limited to a one time of the year, are they? But a croissant and a pen behind the ear... Always good! Sabine x

  15. I'm with you sweetie on the rush, rush, rush. It's the worst. I'm thankful though that my resolution last year was to stop bring busy - and I think I accomplished it. It feels good to just stop sometimes. :)

  19. Definitely that was how mine felt. But since New Year I have been so so lazy, and not felt like doing anything. I think I am slowly getting my motivation back, but at this time of year it seriously takes a beating!!
