Lol, i had a placeholder blog here this morning that just said “Merry Christmas Blog”, I meant to set it to post later in the afternoon at 1pm, but i think i goofed and had it set to 1am!
Christmas this year has been really hectic and busy, mostly because we’ve been trying to create so much with very few hands and sometimes no idea about what the next step is and what the next “thing” is that we need to put into place… It kinda reminds me of a Rubix Cube.
Speaking of Rubix cubes, i found myself playing with one this morning for several hours. A very fun christmas morning indeed!
This cube… it really is an ingenious “toy”, if you could call it that. The object of course to try and solve the puzzle by matching all of the sides up together. Something I didn’t know until this morning, that the first side is actually somewhat easy to get.
When you’re only focusing on one side, you don’t care about all of the other pieces, and you can put full care and regard into getting this one face…
As soon as you start to incorporate a second face into it, you have to break everything you had in order to make them work together. So far I can’t get past 1 face complete… granted I’ve only been playing with it for a little bit, so i’ll write more when I know more.
It’s funny, this whole philosophy is what’s been making balancing all of our projects a challenge. Not a bad thing, just hard, we’ve never done it before… and there’s a lot of “faces” to it. There’s the social media aspects, the video editing content, the web programming, the mental-emotional connections between all of us that keeps us on the same page and brings us close together and more in sync.
It’s like a large scale version of a rubix cube for everything that’s going on in your lives.. and once you have one face done, then something else has to break in order to move forward and get the second one… but pay attention, you want to be able to bring the first face back..
Or maybe it’s about doing everything all at once, having an awareness of where every single block is at the same time, and move them all in relationship to each other so that at the end, everything just slides into place…
Oh boy… i’ve got some practicing to do.
Maybe solving a Rubix Cube will lead to the understanding of how to solve problems in real life a little easier too… I like to think so It’s an exersize of the brain in so many ways.
And of course, obligatory christmas message:
Christmas is not about the thing you get, but the connections and love between each other. The things are simply representations of what that love and connection looks like.
Merry Christmas everyone <3
