With so many demands of my time lately and my decision last week to prioritize I am confronted with what actually has to go. In an effort to protect my yearly goals, anything that does not fall in those goals are on the chopping block.
First thing is, I must say no to things so that I can preserve my family and art time. It is very hard for me because I am a people pleaser. I have to remind myself that people who ask favors are my friends or family and can handle it if I don’t have time right now to help them. In all actuality it is offensive to them for me to think I need to do these favors to please them. I am doing them a favor by saying no and allowing them to be a friend, that’s what I am telling myself anyway.
The next obstacle brings me to the title of my blog. There is a saying that goes something like, “jack of all trades and master of none.” This takes me back to the no fear blog I wrote, “You Make Me Brave”. Since I feel like I can do anything I have a lengthy to do list of things that need to be fixed or made. My time can be leached away all in the name of saving money on a repair bill. I put it to action this week when instead of working on my husband’s chainsaw I found a repairman. We mostly heat with wood so this was very important. If I had not done that and fallen into my previous state of stubborn mentality I will do it all, I would not be finishing my project.
If you have been following my blog I have been teasing you about this project I started about 4 years ago. I had not worked on it for several years but have been hard at it since the new year and blogging began. I will be putting some finishing touches on it tonight and only have one thing holding me back. I am patiently waiting on a part to arrive and can’t wait to finally reveal the product to you next week.
