My thoughts this morning are centered around the craziness of my life. Sometimes, and very often on a Monday I am just sort of stunned by all that I have signed up for and perplexed by the task of trying to fit it in and still find time for meaningful quiet and reflection and simple family moments. Actually, I’ve gotten to the point where I understand that "my list" will never be all the way checked off, so I do allow myself the chance to slow down and soak it in and live in the now …
Then, Monday morning comes and I am reminded of the list and it’s back to the reality of to-dos and deadlines. Oddly enough, rather than jump right in on task #1, I do this weird thing where on a whim I decide to clean under my boys’ beds or sort/purge their drawers — hello? I don’t have time to do that and yet it just happens — so bizarre! I need to post sometime soon about my need for domesticity and how I use it to keep my grounded.
Anyway, on that completely unrelated note, I am excited about the June Kit of the Month. It’s a concept called A Penny For Your Thoughts and it’s designed to help you go back in time to capture thoughts about life-changing decisions and events and then revisit them with your current perspective. It’s cool. You can explore the details and listen to an audio message by clicking on "Idea Gallery & Images" at www.lisabearnson.com/kotm If you are so inclined, I’ve also developed a Projects Now class at BPS that will delve deeper into the creative process of putting all the elements together with your insights and stories. The only way you can take the class is by purchasing it when you purchase the kit. If you purchase both kit and class, your kit will ship with a unique access code stuck to the outside of your box. You can then use this code to register for the class. The classroom will remain open through the end of the 2008, so you will have plenty of time to work on the project.
Let me know what you think.
I’m off to jog, which always helps me mentally sort and prioritize.
I’m still answering Photo Freedom questions, so check back for that.
good luck with Monday.
MORE INFO on the class.
The class I’ve developed at BPS to accompany the kit, includes a welcome message, a downloadable instructional handout, a bonus project worksheet to help you track the information and pictures you need to gather, and a 30 minute presentation (a self-playing slide show) that walks you through the kit and shares tips and ideas on how to make the most of it.
The KOTM web page is acting rather funny (for me anyway) so if you are having trouble, start fresh and go to lisabearnson.com and then KOTM and then BUY NOW, you should see two options. Option one is class and kit, option two is just kit.
Hope this helps!!
