look at that stack of vacation photos, still sitting in the box from Costco since October…
Or this stack of photos from 2009 still waiting to be sorted into ‘scrap it’ and ‘store it’ on my desk. Shameful.
My sewing machine, unused this year so far. No fabric projects made, yet lots of fabric sits in the closet…
I have a point here and it’s not to point out any more shortcomings or chastise myself either. It’s this:
Love what you do with your free time and have fun.
If guilt and other negative feelings invade my personal time I’ve lost. Instead of wallowing in these things still on my ‘pending’ list. Instead of freaking out or turning on the TV because dealing with it all was too much I told guilt to go away. Thought about all the good things I’d done this last week and smiled. Then I made a hopeful list for this week, and approached it 1 thing at a time instead of overwhelming myself with the whole thing. I’ll have fun. Play. and ENJOY THE PROCESS every step.
Because at the end of the day it’s up to me to make the most of my time. I don’t want to be one of those “I don’t have time” or “I just can’t” negative girls. I want to be the happy girl. Yes, I choose happy.
I hope you join me in some happy creative time this week. Carve out 30minutes somewhere, and enjoy.
