Streamlining and the common thread

16 Nov

Yesterday, I bought a new purse. It’s cute and little, streamlined, and well, my other one broke. I picked up my purse and the strap flipped into my face, loose. Then my sunglasses broke two minutes later. Time to streamline and regroup in life too, I thought. So, now my blog has this new funky pink yummy look. Cool. It’s also organized and straightforward. Then this morning it was off to make changes on my website–add new classes, offer readings specials, and add a new fancy contact form. All streamlining again. Time to really focus in. I like this.

I’ve been too scattered. It has seemed if one thing was slow, I’d add another venue. In panic in slow times, I’d offer more venues to compensate, and be even more inundated. More scattered. Then, worse, I’d tell myself all that I did wasn’t enough! I needed to try harder, do more! It’s hard for creative, sensitive people. We are interested in so much. We get tons of ideas. But what I finally realized, through exploring and streamlining, is I always have this one common thread in whatever I do: sharing what I’ve learned in a creative way to help/teach others. Whether I am making essences, online fairy classes, or offering a workshop or book.

What in your life needs to bear down to its basic form? What is your basic thread? Be honest. What is the common love or purpose in your career that comes up over and over? Have fun exploring. And, by the way, it’s more than enough. 🙂

    Hi Ronni, love the look and feel of your blog. It’s so you. Thank you for all the fabulous advice and insight. The work that you did with our dogs was so valuable. I’ll never forget how right on you were with our old dog, who told you that he was an elder, not a child and that our son was his “boy”. And that he tolerated our new little girl dog, cause he remembered what it was like to be young. Thanks for all the good work that you do with our special friends.

    Ronni – Thank you for this insightful posting. It is so easy to get caught up in keeping up with things that I forget what is basic joy & purpose for me. I think that the basic thread for me is giving my free spiritual readings. I don’t have time to do many each week, but I love doing them since there are so many people out there struggling – especially now with people losing their jobs. However, now, for the rest of the day, I’m going to hold an image of people FINDING the most perfect job for them when it is needed.
