Today is the day that I have decided that I really need to start planning more and setting some realistic goals. I have found that I spend way too much time reading blogs and checking my Etsy store for sales. It is not in my nature to worry because frankly I have too much going on. I buckled down before and I learned how to knit in a couple of hours, I still have not picked up my crochet hook to start on a granny square for Hoppo Bumpo's granny-along. It is only one square I have the yarn, I have the hook and I have the time. What is wrong with you Mona?!?! (that is me yelling at myself) Which leads me to this question: What is exactly your problem? You have no plan when you wake up and you have abandoned your lists. I was once an avid list maker. I have a clipboard with several pens close by but I don't write on it anymore. However I am going to start, right now! You may be wondering what brought me to this realization. I was on Flickr and there is a group that I belong to called Pretty Organized and I saw a photo of an organized group of art supplies. I decided to investigate further into the Flickr member who posted the photo and she had a blog that I visited called Defining my Destiny and she had some wonderful quotes. I am going to share a few with you.
Ignorance is a voluntary tax!" - Unknown
"I can't have a crises next week, my schedule is already full." - Henry Kissinger
"You must act as if it is impossible to fail." - Ashanti Proverb
"This is nothing to me, difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week." - Jay-Z
And my favorite quote of all that she featured on her blog is this one below:
"Clutter is a sign that decisions need to be made."
When I read this quote I was like "Wow" It was definitely an Aha moment for me. I am going to have to find a way to curb the clutter in my home. This is not an easy task when you have 3 people in your home working against you everyday. When I clean my DH feels that I am hiding his things. However I work in my home and the atmosphere now is not conducive to my creativity or my well-being. It is a fact that I am internalizing my real feelings on the state of my home. My home is clean just not as organized as I want and need it to be. In my head it goes back to a quote of mines that I used and developed during my college years.
"Potential means nothing if you don't get off you butt and do something. "
You can have all the potential in the world but if you do not take any action to use your potential it is just a waste. I have a decision to be made and I won't let this clutter hold me back!
