A Distracted Visionary

Friday, February 6, 2015

I am obsessed with cleanliness and organization. I love white space, clean lines, labels, and all things neat and pretty.

I love these things because I don't have them.

I crave them.

...but I have ADHD  (the ADD kind, not the hyperactive kind) or at least I am pretty sure I do.  I am in the process of diagnosis but every book I have read (and there have been many) explains why keeping focus in school and work has always been a struggle, why my desk and home can never be organized for long, and why I jump from one hobby to the next back to the last one on to the next one ...or why I can't remember ANYTHING.   My brain stays on 100 at all times. I currently have a 7 tabs open on the top of my page which is the least amount I probably ever have open. Usually there are so many tabs you can't read what they are and I don't even know until I click them.  I have 4 apps to give me reminders, alerts, and keep me on schedule and I am still late for most things.

For those of you who have been following this blog you knew it as Everything Under the Moon and while I loved writing it and crafting, cooking, and sharing projects, I had to accept my reality. I work full-time and I am a single mom and with all my many loves, it took way too much discipline and focus to maintain that style of blog. I love writing and blogging so I needed some time to refocus and decide what I wanted to blog about, which is everything, of course. So with this blog there is no rhyme or reason, or special days, or obligations. I am just sharing what I want to share.  I'm just sharing my life.

I am a photographer.  I do both fashion and creative portraits. I am working on launching my business and so you will probably hear lots about that here.  I will share with you the techniques that I learn to stay organized and timely and be successful in my business. The good thing that comes with this brain of mine is creativity and I am in love with anything artsy and innovative and beautiful. This is the catalyst for my photography work.

I love Jesus and I always have but I am just now starting to get a handle on my walk with him and understand myself better through him and so I will share those things as well.


I will walk you through my journey of taking my old childhood home with all of it's memory-filled clutter and making it ADHD friendly and organized while balancing being a full-time working, single mom to my angel of a daughter who is my all, while also growing in Christ and launching a new creative business.

Starry-Eyed is my open journal.
