what are you asking for?

About a year ago I wrote a note and put it on my desk. It said

I want more work

YIKES

The next day I ran back to it and tore it in a million pieces and wrote a new note

I want more paid work 

Because, let’s face it- we likely all  have enough ‘work’.

Things began picking up. You may think it was the note and the (overused word) intention, you may think it was the extra work I did, you may think it was the attitude, you may think it was the moment of enlightenment I got when I read the value of a Starbucks customer over a lifetime is $27,000 and my ticket prices are much higher than that latte you are holding and perhaps I should take my good to great and treat every single customer like they are the beginning and the end. And be impeccable in my word. (oh how I love that phrase and I am working on it).

And you will be right no matter what you think.

Would you also believe I write notes to myself about my friendships, my whole family and the boy I wanted to come into my life?

What are you asking for?

can you see the forest for the trees?

Want to see some magic? Take a look. I am a lucky duck. Sometimes I even get to wear a bikini to the office in all this heat.

You think all I ever think about is art? I can’t live on that alone. There is chocolate too. Come here see what I mean.

Have a beautiful day. And write yourself a little note and see what happens. ( And maybe use spellcheck as I clearly did not)

  1. I keep a notepad with a big tin of magic markers and have notes like this all over my bathroom so I need to look at them every morning when I get up and every night before bed. It’s a great way to create mindfullness and (what Danielle LaPorte would say) manifest your core desires. #workslikeacharm and so much #fun (and now i love that my son is copying me and doing this too.)
