If you are the type of person who is a visionary, highly creative, yet, at times, a one person team, this blog will speak to you.
I love, love, LOVE big projects. For anyone who knows me, I also love tea. The other night, I had a dream about my current big project, a fundraiser which includes a tea, a fashion show and vendors. Most people know that these are THREE SEPARATE HIGHLY TIME CONSUMING EVENTS. But, oh no, not me. I've rolled them into one big event.
So, the other night, I had a dream about my event. In my dream, I called a team meeting to get an update on how each person was coming along with their assigned tasks.
I became quite frustrated in the dream because whenever I called on a team member for their report, no one would respond. I actually became so frustrated, that I began talking in my sleep. I heard myself, "Rita, let's hear your report. Rita? Rita, why aren't you responding? Well, ok. Fran, are you ready with your report? Fran? Fran, why aren't you responding?"
No matter what name I called out, NO ONE RESPONDED. Then, I heard myself laughing.
I woke myself up, cracking up. I was laughing so loudly that YOU should have been able to hear me WHEREVER you were. Would you like to know why no one responded when I called their name? BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A TEAM!
Yep, I'm one of those who plans big, really big events. I told you that I'm a visionary! When I ask most folks for help, (I rarely do), they seem overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. But praise God, I have a few ride or die buddies who hang in there with me. No matter the enormity of the project, everything always comes out just fine.
So, if you're reading this blog, live in the Twin Cities and would like to help a sister out, inbox me.
By the way, this is going to be a fun event, a great fundraiser for a good cause. This event will help to raise funds for women who have been victims of domestic abuse, and women who have experienced other kinds of trauma and need inner healing, but can't afford it.
Only a few weeks away now. The date is April 28th. And...most of the work is already done.
Hope you come and join us. For tickets or to become a vendor go to www.drpeggyelliott.com under the heading Bettye Anne's Spring Tea.
I wonder what I'll dream about tonight!
