Some things are worth doing....
It could be because it is summer and I am getting lazy.... It could be because I am tired of carrying every ball tossed into my playing field. I tend to be a leader just so that things actually do get done. And then, I naturally get tired when I pile too much on my plate. I have a list with 100's of items on it TO DO. At least 25 for each room of my home --and for each area of my professional and personal life.
In trying to analyze where my happy middle line is really at, I have been decluttering some more scrapbooking supplies, donating some knickknacks from around the house, and saying no to some unneeded commitments. I even booked time this weekend here at home--with myself. I could have gone to north with hubby to help move his brother, or I could have gone to a scrapping retreat. I could even ask a friend over to be artsy with me but you know I am kind of thinking I need more time to JUST DO the things on my lists that are worth doing.
Then maybe I will rip up the list and forget the rest. I want to save my energy for things that matter. I want to smile more, pray more, take my vitamins, walk and garden. I want to read good books and talk to my mom on the phone weekly. I want to USE those Tim Holtz goodies I have been buying (and love) Saving them with good intention isn't the same as using them and creating a piece that I will love. Some things are SO worth doing....
I will keep you posted! :)
In the meantime, what can YOU get rid of off your lists that isn't worth your time? And what will you substitute in for it that is truly worthwhile?
