Today I choose serenity.
I admit it freely - I am focused, determined, not afraid to work hard. That also makes me obsessive and prone to over doing things, working myself into exhaustion.
So today I choose to let go of a few things. I am facing more health challenges, although initial appointments have given me hope for treatment, if not cure. I thank my lucky stars I am Canadian with our universal health care. Having medical care I can count on that won't bankrupt me (in spite of some American politicians who keep insisting Canadians flock to the US to 'steal' health care) means I can put my trust in my doctors although I do inform myself and advocate for my special snowflake-ness.
I have also chosen to let go of a few other things that were causing me stress and put my faith into the hands of some others I also trust.
I still have to work on the instructors/workshops/seminars, but after three days of concentrated focus on that, I feel I have crafted a well rounded list of instructors and topics. Of course not everyone will find something of interest - that is the nature of planning such a large event. But I have done my best, drawing on my decades of experience in the field, choosing people I feel will do good presentations - and be fun as well.
Because if we aren't having fun, I think we are missing the point.
