Reprogramming in Progress...
I’ve been a bit M.I.A. due to workload and recovering from my shoulder/arm being dislocated, but I’m most definitely still around. The couple of weeks spent recovering gave me a moment to realize that I need to focus on strengthening some newer good habits and breaking some old bad habits that are starting to creep back in before it’s too late. That meant it was time to reread ATOMIC HABITS by James Clear again. The first time I read this was three years ago when I was juggling taking care of my father and working on Doctor Aphra. The tips in this book helped me to stay relatively on track with pages and still chauffer my Dad back and forth to chemo and other cancer-related appointments. It was before I ultimately had to move into his house and take care of him full-time until he passed. Through reading the book I was also able to identify one of my greatest obstacles. Let’s just say chapter 11 of the book was speaking directly to me! Over the last three years I’ve been slowly putting the pieces of my life back and emerging from the fog of grief in bits and pieces. I won’t get into the details of the different ways my father’s passing has effected me over the course of these three years, but I will say that some pieces of myself died too and other’s evolved into something new. Needless to say, I’m a different person now than I was then and only in the last 4-6 months have I started to feel more….whole.
Now, with the formation of this new studio, I’m not only back working regularly, but I’ve got a full plate of projects in the works and I’m also in a leadership role again. Exciting times and with building anything new there will be growing pains and a little bit of struggle, but it’s SO worth it. At this point, we’re a bit like a baby trying to figure out walking. There is a LOT of falling! LOL! We’re getting there, though. So, it’s also super important to get your mind right. That said, a rereading of ATOMIC HABITS was a must for me. Especially since I started falling back into some old habits that do more harm than good. I want us to fly and produce as much content as we can and that starts with me. So, I’m addressing that by utilizing the tools and tips I learned in that book which brought me as close to the creator I’ve always wanted to be as I’d ever been. It’s going to be a fun ride. “Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward”. -John C. Maxwell
On that note, we’re currently working on things that I can’t share at this time, but as soon as I’m able to post some stuff I will not hesitate to share! I’ll also be attending Comic Con Revolution this weekend. If you’re headed there please stop by and say hello!
Until next time!
