If you’re like me, you’re tempted to be a little disappointed if you can’t accomplish things you were planning.
Oh, I know we all talk about how important it is to set priorities, to schedule “me” time, and to live in the moment – but following through is the tough part.
Of course, there are periods when we’re able to get into a groove of putting our plans near the top of the list. It can even seem quite natural.
But then there are also times when life gets in the way. Family and friends need us and when they do – it seems much more natural to put our own plans aside.
Ok, Crystal. Sounds true enough, but is this going somewhere?
Why, yes it is! 😉
I’m talking about a light bulb that went on for me recently as I looked back over the past year. At first, it seemed as if I didn’t finish very much on the creative front. While re-organizing, I came across a bunch of supplies and patterns that I’d been so excited about initially, but had never had time to begin. I tried to remember what I actually had finished and, off the top of my head, I couldn’t come up with much.
Then, I went through some photos and was surprised to see that there was more than I thought.
A lot more than I thought.
I‘m including some of the photos to remind myself to focus on what was finished (not what was left undone), and also on whatever positive things I was able to accomplish for my family and friends over the course of the year.
We all know it, but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded . . .
There will always be things we wanted to do.
Far better to concentrate on the things we DID do!
When you look at it that way – it’s all good! 😀
