Dontcha love it when someone shoots straight with you?
Whether you're starting something new and don't know where to start...or you've got tasks looming over your head that you don't want to do, avoidance is not the answer. Can I get an amen?🙌 (Except we all do this, right? Like my folded laundry sitting in a basket in my closet right now just waiting for hangars.) 😉🤦 I heard a great acronym for handling your emails (and maybe a good way to handle other things we circle round and round without the satisfaction of accomplishment). It's OHIO. Only Handle It Once. It may not be perfectly applicable to everything, but a good thing to strive for.
So, I'm preaching to myself here too. Let's strap on a little Amelia Earhart and Nike mentality and just do it!
What do you need to stop thinking about and just start doing?
My Instagram family,
I've always been strong. I was born and raised in circumstances which forced me to be strong.
I'm usually the rock that people lean on in challenging times.
But today... I can't seem to find that strength. Today, my heart is completely shattered, seeing all the tragedies that are happening around the world. And my heart aches beyond my ability to process this much pain. I can't comprehend why so much suffering, and my heart can only feel every bit of it. Please allow me some time to process everything that's going on. I need to find my strength back. But my heart hurts deeply for so many people.
I'll be back to painting again. I just don't know when. I want to thank each one of you for being part of my life, at least through this space. I wish I could hug you all, and maybe... Just maybe, the pain would go away. The universe has explained to me why all these things are happening, and I understand that it's all part of our cleansing process. The cleansing of our planet, and humanity. My Indigo soul understands, but my human heart feels all the pain. The pain of an open heart that weeps the suffering of so many people.
I only ask the universe to give us all the strength, to keep going.
Meanwhile, do anything you can to help, wherever you are.
And wherever you are, my love is with you. -Liz 💜

Chef Justin Khanna, the new kid on the Seattle restaurant chopping block came to my attention through a network of social media and immediately I racked my brain as to how I was going to find myself in a kitchen with this mysterious chef.
The moment I met Justin, chef was not the immediate thought. Here before me stood a very hungry young man whose appetite was satisfied by you, the who, what, when, where, why and how you. With a calculated pop in his step...

Spring is heavy in the air and it feels exquisite.⠀⠀
I feel an inner unfurling, mojo returning, fire building, deep joy. Total yumminess.⠀⠀
And how cool is this image from Aleah Michele?! She's captured exactly how I feel. ⠀⠀

Writing the book is one thing (a BIG one thing) but marketing and selling it is a WHOLE different thing!
Not only do I love to help authors actually write their books, but I LOVE to help with the marketing aspect! I started a new series in my FB group where I interview experts to help you get the whole marketing and selling thing down pat.
A few days ago, I talked with @scatteredsasha allll about FB page growth and marketing. Did you watch that interview?
