The last few weeks have been intense.
Wait. Strike that. The last few YEARS have been intense.
Hold on a sec….. when hasn’t life been intense? And if it wasn’t intense, what kind of life would that even be?
I do not like being still for too long. I’m no good at watching TV (it generally puts me right to sleep). If I spend too much time on social media, I get super agitated. If I’m in the house for longer than approximately 18 hours, I become foul-tempered.
My mind and body and heart and soul require LIVING.
I don’t think I’m alone in this. In fact, I think I landed smack-dab in the middle of drag racing because this particular corner of the world speaks to the intensity that I carry alongside the “sweetness” that has somehow become a signature personality trait.
I think you can be a kind person and be intense at the same time. I think you SHOULD be all the things that you really are. Unless you’re mean. Don’t be mean.

I walked into my office yesterday to this slightly askew stack of notebooks. I do not like stacks. I am angered by the stacks left by others. So seeing this stack and knowing that it was my own doing caused me to pause and ponder. It really has been an intense few weeks.
The U.S. Nationals and everything beautiful that comes with it, working my tail off to grow my business in the right direction, newborn babies and pregnancy announcements (my daughters! Not me!), trying to be a good and present nana and momma and wife and friend, all while making big, big plans…….
It’s a lot. But it’s supposed to be. And I don’t know how to do this any other way – nor would I truly want to.
P.S. These notebooks are:
1. Daily to-do lists (top)
2. In-venue planning & notes
3. Notes from classes & podcasts
5. Media guide
6. Major project notes/plans, book 1
7. Major project notes/plans, book 2
