As much as I LOVE the internet and all the WONDERFUL things it has brought into my life (including YOU), I think it’s gotten into my head and has stirred up a
Between Facebook and Pinterest………
It’s kind of made me think I need to be perfect or at least try to be. With a click of a button I can see others, all over the world who appear to handle it all so much better than I can!
I see people committed to getting physically fit and I’m inspired by their transformation and dedication and wonder why I can’t quite get there myself. I try, but I get side-tracked and quite easily I might add.
Why can’t I find the time???
But I’d also like to find more time to paint! So many out there are creating, sharing, teaching, holding contests, making videos and hosting giveaways and I struggle to just keep a touch of freshness in my etsy shop!
I see beautiful photos that people have shared of their homes. Why do their homes seem so perfect and ….spotless? Then I look around and think I should spend more time cleaning and organizing my humble abode!
People share how fabulous the latest best seller was that they just finished. I used to read. Not a lot, but when I did, I really did enjoy it! I miss sitting down with a good book. I feel I should be reading more.
I should be walking my dog……every day. On top of the guilt I feel with everything else, he gives me these looks when I slack in HIS department.
There’s also the cooking and baking! I LOVE that too, but now that the kids are grown and on their own, I just don’t cook like I used to. When I see all the wonderful recipes and photos, I just wish I could find time for that too! But for now, I’ll just enjoy the many ‘how-to’ videos on youtube! They are fabulous, by the way!! Check some of them out!
While I’m at work, I’m all pumped and excited with huge plans of all I’ll accomplish once I get home, but as the day goes on…I… fizzle… out.
And finally… aren’t we all supposed to find time to pamper ourselves too? I mean, that’s important too, right? Yeah, well that rarely happens here!
There are SO many things I want to try, so many things I want to do better, but there comes a time when I need to just sit back, relax and slow down a bit.
I’m going to try very hard to learn to accept what and who I am.
Accept what I can do.
Realize and appreciate that I am doing just fine where I am at this time.
I will learn to accept that I am just fine as is.
I’m not perfect and thank GOD for that! Nobody likes being around perfection anyway!
