Either you let your life slip away by not doing the things you want to do or you get up and do them.
Roger von Oech
There are just too many wonderful things to do in this world! For more than a year now I have been chasing too many varied interests. I have thrown myself into writing, genealogy, tai chi, learning a musical instrument, cooking and on and on. Did you know that getting a book published takes more time than actually writing a book? That tai chi takes a lot of practice? Well, you get the idea why I have not been blogging. And, yes, I have been complaining that there is never enough time to do the things I really want to do...like painting and drawing. Having spent countless hours organizing my "projects" and reading books on how to "get your days organized" I decided it was time to make some new choices. #1 You can't do it all ~ some things have got to go. #2 Clean out your project closet right away. It was while following up on choice #2 that I came across this small needlepoint I completed about two years ago. Upon seeing it I suddenly realized I used to be better at making choices. The pattern for this project was in black and white so the color scheme was up to me. It probably took a little while to decide on the colors but I'm satisfied with how it turned out. I just may frame this and hang it above my desk as a constant reminder: If you're not happy about something in all likelihood it's because of some random choice quickly made. Admit you made a mistake and choose to change it.
