The Pressure’s Really On…

That’s my horoscope today. “The pressure’s really on.”

It seems like a good start for my first post to this blog, since I feel like I have a hundred things all going on at the same time. And it’s better than my horoscope a few weeks ago, which said, “The list of things you’ve been meaning to do is getting pretty long.” I was kind of indignant about that one – after all, I don’t really need my horoscope to nag me.

But, horoscopes aside, there are so many exciting things going on that I don’t know where to start. In the book She: Understanding Feminine Psychology, Robert Johnson says that one of the psychological tasks women are called to master (or to mistress?) is to do one thing and do it well. If I understand him correctly, he’s talking about that ability to have a million things swirling around you and still be able to focus on the one thing that most needs doing. And to do that one thing well before you move on to the next.

I think I used to do that better than I do now. Now I can’t even pick one thing to focus on in this post!

Johnson says we need to take an eagle’s perspective before we focus in – step back far enough to get the whole picture, I think he means. When I step back, I see a kalidescope of events and activities, chores and challenges, that intersect and intertwine with each other.

So I just spent waaaay too much time trying to create a visual of that. Which is not my strong suit anyhow, and it didn’t turn out anything like I wanted. And now I can’t even get it to copy and paste here. Ok. Enough of this.

This was supposed to be a fabulous first post on my first blog, but really, it doesn’t matter, cause I haven’t told anyone I’m doing it!! So it is what it is. And it reflects what’s going on with me much better than if I’d done some great writing or succinctly explained one of my projects.

So I’ll be back…
