“Eat a live frog every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”
How cool is that?! Yes, I know, it's not stamping related, and I STILL haven't finished my card organiser, but I'm not feeling at all guilty about it. SORRY! I've just had a wonderful evening with my Sister, and others from the SOS team (First Level). Very cool - laughing, talking & sharing funny stories. Mostly about kids, of course! Then I got home, intending to post something, but got a little carried away looking at other people's blogs, and being amazed by how creative people are. You know, I don't feel creative at all. I LOVE making things, but don't feel I got the creative gene - I can just copy, change & occasionally come up with something totally new that surprises me. It doesn't mean I don't enjoy it, but sometimes I WISH I was really clever, creatively speaking! Anyway, back to the blogs - I checked out Sarah Klass's Blog, and found the post on 2nd January, that really spoke to me. Funny - it seems like a long time ago, but the middle of last year, I had the same feelings - everything was spinning a little to fast for me to try and keep up with, and I felt overwhelmed at just the idea of getting out of bed, let alone making lunches or breakfast. Simplify! That's what I had to do - and stop beating myself up for not doing everything I thought I should be doing, and actually stop doing some things that just were not important. It was great to read of Sarah's feelings, made me feel better in a funny way. Odd huh!? Anyway, just wanted to start off the year saying that if any of you feel a little overwhelmed, or anxious about things then check out Sarah's posting - she's listed some other blogs & books that helped her, and I know that I could have done with something like this when I was feeling really stink. Thanks Sarah - for your honesty and open-ness. It will help lots of other people, and I wish you the very best to come this year.
Have a great night, and you may see a post from me sometime really soon. Maybe.
Take care, and if you're still reading, THANKS for sticking with my rambling.
