Finding Life Balance in the Mud

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.

For more information or to register, go to and maybe I will see you there on May 26th and 27th.

See you there!

    I’m so glad that the universe called. We would all be very sad if you gave up clay.
