I am back with this week's Linger Question (oh! and a new 'do!") This question revolves taking an inventory on the emotions that are "motivating" you to move forward into a particular goal you have.
AND the question holds a challenge:
Are the emotions that you are using for fuel REALLY ABLE to sustain you for the long haul?
I look forward to hearing what you think. Leave your answer in the comments below OR post the answer on your blog and I will pop by for a visit.
"From now on I hope always to stay alert, to educate myself as best I can. But lacking this, in future I will relaxedly turn back to my secret mind to see what it has observed when I thought I was sitting this one out. We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff."

It has been a little over 2 months since our month from Colorado. The dust is settling and I can see that we were indeed meant to come back to Arizona; it is home to us.
These pics are some quirky little views that we saw on the walk to my girl's school...
This view always fascinated me. The neighbor had an old gas pump which is kind of funny because my girl did not know what it was.

Welcome to this week's Linger Question:
Where in your life do you need to burn the boats?

We are settling into our home in Arizona with the heat and with catching up with friends who have been so supportive of our all the moving we have done over the years. We try to make it a point on the weekends to explore the beautiful museums around town and this weekend we ventured over to the Superstition Mountain museum.
On the agenda of me this week: I am creating a couple of PDF that I am excited to present to you in the next few weeks. All those on my mailing from today forward will automatically get the PDF in their inbox.

Hello and welcome to The Linger Series
My hope is to add a vlog with the questions each week. I hope you will benefit from MY answers to these questions. This also a chance to see my style as a life coach.
Here is the question:
What idea are you afraid to share with the world because you do not think it is good enough? Is there someone in your group that you can share this idea who will give you loving honest feedback?
P.S. the video cut off!

You have a choice. You have a choice as to who you let speak into your life. You have a choice as to who you spend your precious time with. You have a choice to say whether or not something in your life no longer serves the greater good which is to be at peace within yourself and with the world. You have a choice to say when a relationship is hurting you. You have choices.

Yes I am back and playing with video again. Isn't it funny how you suddenly get mesmerized with an activity? So kind of a silly confession but I did not realize that my camera could take video! And now I could just kick myself for all the months overseas and in Colorado where I could have been stockpiling beautiful video. Oh well... you start where you are, right?

Here is the beginning of what I hope to be a weekly series on this blog. I am thinking about doing the Linger series in a vlog format where I can even have guests come on and answer the Linger questions this week. Let me know if you would be interested in being a guest by commenting below this post.
In the meantime, here is a look into what's going on at the studio.

Did you know I have a website filled with articles to help you with your small business? On that blog I took the time to answer Danielle LaPorte's Series of Questions (YOU KNOW how I love a good question!).
Here is one from the archives:
This is my submission to Danielle LaPorte's Burning Question:
What's one dumb thing you used to believe?

The last few weeks have been filled with preparing as a family to have a son in the military. My oldest came to stay with us for his last two weeks before boot camp. It was an interesting time for he and I since he moved out when he was 18. Now at 23 both he and I have changed quite a bit. The person he knows now as his mother is incredibly different from the one he grew up with. I was in no way exercising my creative life in the way I am now. So we spent much of the time trying to figure out how to find some common ground on which to communicate. There were moments where it seemed too hard to find the space and it would have been so easy to think why try since he is leaving in a matter of days. But if you know me, you know that was not a viable option.
So one went off to boot camp last week and one is off to first grade this week. It has been such a challenge to find a way to be a mama in two different developmental stages. I credit healthy living, an open heart and prayer filled expectancy as reasons I am even able to give my all when it feels like there is not much left to give.
