It Is, Indeed, A Mystery

Saturday, October 06, 2012

So I panicked today as a realized I had this quilting class to attend. I signed up for this class back in May or June, but it slipped my mind until my calendar reminder popped. I should not have ignored those e-mails from the Quilt Shop that I thought were merely advertisements of store happenings. They were, indeed, supply lists and information.

My point . . . because there is a point . . . is that the class is a "Mystery Quilt" class. You don't know what the quilt will look like. We don't have a design . . . we get a stack of fabric and you get instructions a month at a time over the next several months. I have no idea what it's supposed to look like, and I just have to follow the instructions and cut things the way they tell us to in the instructions. In six months or so, we will have all the pieces and will somehow put them together.

So it made me think about this weight loss journey. We work on this one day at a time, one month at a time, and it is so gradual. And the end result is a mystery! But if we follow the instructions, day in and day out, you should reach your goals.

And the mystery . . . what will I look like? How will I feel? What will my health be like? How will I maintain this?

Hmmm . . . something to think about for sure!

    I like that comparison. we just have to do 1 piece at a time putting together all we learned and what we do till we come up with the quilt that is our future.
