YES to wonderful mess AND to focus!
I wish that I could focus on just one thing and do it for the rest of my life. I have soooo many things that spark my curiosity that some days I have trouble focusing at all. Just look at my Facebook page…it’s a mess. There are motivational quotes, pictures of our grand-twins, posts from articles I’ve read, snippets from my get healthy journey, likes of other people’s posts, and on and on!
In a recent conversation about redoing my Facebook page to focus on one thing, my media coach said, “Prosser, own who you are! You are all those wonderful things that you post. Focus on who you are!” Great advice! Patricia Ryan Madson, writing in Improv Wisdom: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up says, “Instead of preparing for an outcome, ready yourself for whatever is about to happen. Allow yourself to be surprised.

So, I’m not a mess or maybe I am! AND, I’m a combination of many wonderful things. I’m choosing to say “Yes…And!” to the many facets that combine to make me!

Are you saying “Yes…And!” to your wonderful mess or trying to fit your “square peg-ness” into a round hole??
