I'm a bit antsy about leaving the shop unmanned like the worrywart I am, but this is one of the things I'm working on. Letting go. If I had the chance, I'd just work and work. I did that as a doctor (oh, you so wouldn't have approved of my lifestyle & diet back then - on really bad days, it would be a meal a day, sometimes from the vending machine) and I still find myself slipping into old habits as an artist. I get so engrossed that I forget to eat or drink. Yes, a bit extreme, but I put it down to habits? Like I said, I'm quite bad at letting things go. They have to be done. As soon as possible. As best as possible. And funny enough, the day just disappears and I'm faced with trying to figure out what to cook for dinner again. I've forgotten that a few times before and had to deal with a very grumpy husband... oops!
So this vacation. It's more than just a vacation. It's a test and a challenge in letting go. Allowing myself to accept that the world will still be here when I get back, and that it's ok to send out any orders then. But I still feel bad. So you all get a discount on any orders placed while I'm gone. To make me feel a bit less guilty about ditching you guys :) Enjoy, and see you when we're back!
