I’m breaking away from my zip zip duties for a moment to bear witness to my own ‘BB Webb journey’.
I thought of something queer…odd. Of course every moment we experience is NEW, but I’ve been noticing how certain actions seem especially new. (I’ve not taken LSD, I’m merely noticing what has gone perhaps unnoticed or certainly not consciously recognized before).
Now, nothing earth shattering here….just moments seen a bit from the left instead of the right.
I noted that the other night I’d never made a turn in a certain way in my kitchen with my tea preparation just so, with my dogs surrounding me with an unusual glee usually reserved for when I’m preparing food or issuing out a ‘dog treat’. I merely noticed.
I noticed a new way I spoke with a team member and how my body felt in my clothes. I recognized a brief moment where and how I held a defense mechanism within myself back. I was merely noticing.
I noticed a definite fondness flood over me when considering certain possibilities of new work, new connections in my work. I just happened to notice it. Answers to challenging situations, creative ‘ahas’ encouraging me forward.
They are everywhere, these new things. I like noticing them. Moments.
I find that it’s usually around creating something fresh and new or meeting someone who might hold a mirror to myself in a good way or open a thought to a new possibility to a challenge. I’m exhilerated in those moments.
And I am meeting new people…folks to help this vision I am growing for developing the land behind my beautiful Carl House, people who augment the thoughts I have for my writing, speaking, the media work I am chomping at the bit to pursue as I am less in the day to day runnings of Carl House.And this week, I realized, (as we continue to have a handful of reactive moments in my business as we do some more growth filled moving about), I had misunderstood one of the alternative marketing opportunities with a bridal show we are participating in this weekend, Bridal Extravaganza. I realized on Tuesday that we were lined up to design a table top for 6-8 people…any theme, colors, flatwear, dishes, flowers, design trend….After the shock and working to adjust my already full schedule, (as I was eager to participate), an idea blossomed for a theme in moments and in short order, a trip to 5 stores in 3 hours, I had what I wanted and more.
And I aim for us to win, though that’s hardly the point. I was merely excited to get to create in a new way, different from my current day to day. I can’t divulge our theme or photos yet, but I hope you’ll stay tuned. I hear the competition is tough this year with MANY more participants than last year. Despite so few hours of rest this week, as I continue as ‘BB a go-go’….I am enthralled to have my fingers in so many tasty pies.
I considered…it’s the act of being creative that keeps my fire lit. It’s energizing, real, full, expansive and fun….working to execute the visions which keep knocking inside my head.
