Can I start off by saying just how good it feels to focus? I mean, to really focus! Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a dreamer and a visionary. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with either unless you are both without focus. And admittedly, I really had to focus on my focus.
I was trying to do everything – host kid events, do party planning, train and hire performers, build the business, keep a full time job, volunteer, do photography, help friends, be a mom, be a wife, be a caregiver, serve God… I was trying to accomplish way too much (and with little support)! Again, my focus needed more focus.
Soon, my health began to fail. I had a heart attack and ended up spending six days in the hospital! I’m still recovering, but one thing I am happy about is having the shifting of my focus as an outcome.
I’ve learned to say “NO” and not feel guilty about it. By saying no to certain things, I can now say “YES” to things that I really enjoy doing. When I focus on what brings me joy, I find it also keeps me healthy. My focus motivates me to KISS myself over and over and I love it! And by KISS I mean Keep It Simple Sweetheart.
Sometimes, all it takes is a paradigm shift, a different perspective, or a heart attack! LOL
I hope you enjoy the newly focused Girl Adored Parties & More, I know I sure do!
