the busy blues

Every once in a while, sneaky little negative thoughts creep in making me feel a little blue. I've noticed that I've recently been complaining of being very busy, as I am working on lots of stuff right now. But, then I read an article on Lady Gaga that gave me a little perspective (albeit from someone who happens to be possibly the most famous person in the world right now.... and can someone please tell me why she is often covered in fake blood?)

ANYWAY, here is a Lady who while on tour around the world for 3 years, managed to ALSO produce a new album and partake in Lord knows what else along the way, including fashion shoots for Vogue, co-hosting events with Oprah Winfrey and the like...  and do you know what she said about feeling tired?

Lady Gaga

I love that. It reminded me that when you are doing stuff you love, you can't really stop. There is a feeling in your soul that you must do it, in fact, you don't really have a choice. You just feel you have to do it. Not because you HAVE to, but because you really want to.

Another bit of inspiration, coming from Holly Becker's podcast (from my BYW class)  says not to focus on the negative,  and that  “you have to push through the struggle” and “keep doing what you love”.  I believe this to be true. So, if I'm busy doing a bunch of things I love to do, than I shall no longer complain, but say THANK YOU. Thank you for all the great opportunities coming my way. Thank you for the creative ideas that keep me up at night. Thank you for new friends. Thank you for inspiring classes. Thank you for dreams. Just thank you.

I'll leave you with a song from my daughter's preschool class today, it goes, "Here comes the sun, Little Darling, Here comes the Sun, and I say, IT'S ALRIGHT".


  1. What an inspiring post! Although I'm fairly new to blogging (I actually found you through BYW) I've worked in TV for years so understand too well all the work you must be putting into your show right now. And i know when something is so creative and personal you really can get a little drained every so often. So like Holly said "keep doing what you love" and enjoy - Good Luck! xo
