Or how the Universe said “Stay Muddy”.
My life has been feeling a bit out of balance lately. I am driving hard to get my coaching business off the ground and that isn’t leaving much time for clay. For a time I was even thinking of giving up my rented studio space. Really, why pay rent if I’m never there. But wow, could I really hang up my sponge and chamois?
I was pondering this for several weeks. The guilt of not getting into the studio was weighing on me. But every time I thought about throwing it in, I got sad. And then I got an email message out of the blue. “Did I do conferences?” When I realized that this was a clay conference and not a wellness conference, I laughed. “Ok, Ok, I get it universe. I’m not abandoning clay.”
After a few email exchanges over rates, dates and details, I am now booked to present slides and demo at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Clay Conference in May.
I couldn’t help but wonder, why me? Nancilee Bodine, the energetic organizer was looking for someone who wood-fires. But she was also intrigued by my health struggles and the effect that has had on my life and work. Again, I had to laugh. As much as I think of my life in compartments – “I have to give up clay to coach,” Nancilee showed me that there is no need to balance these aspects of myself – they are all me.
