Busy Busy Busy! And I LOVE it!

I wasn't able to spend a lot of time on here yesterday and I fell short of getting my points, but the day care is filling back up and we had 5 new kids start yesterday! WooHoo!! I am so excited to have the house almost full again; it makes the day fly by so much faster.
I have finally gotten into unpacking (since the move last NOVEMBER) all the day care crafts and misc and am getting it all organized so craft and activity time flows so much easier. It has taken me awhile to get enough book shelves and office shelving to get it all organized, but I am getting there and it is really looking awesome. I am so thankful for Thrift Stores!!!
It really amazes me what you can get done when you decide to carry a positive attitude. I have put this off for so long because it just seemed to be an overwhelming task. I hit it a little every day during the week and then really get into on my free weekends and I have accomplished more than I thought possible in such a small amount of time. (I have been in business 14 years and have way more stuff than I thought I did. lol)
Small steps; that's what I need to remember. I am the personality type that wants it all right now and I have a really bad habit of avoiding it if I can't accomplish it in one day. I am getting better and accepting that some things take time, but can be accomplished and there is no need to stress about what is still unfinished when it is time to call it a day. This is a big step for me. My one track mind has kept me stuck more often than not. I am learning that a long project drawn out over several days or even weeks, can be just as satisfying as those projects I start and finish in one day. This really excited me for gardening. I try to get it all done in one day's time and end up burning out, but realize now that I can slow down and enjoy the process of it.
So my message to you all today: SLOW DOWN and enjoy the process of all things in life. It isn't a race! Find the fun in everything you do or have to do. Makes life so much easier to live with! :)

    emoticon That's so true - getting a little done is better than not starting. I tend to think that way sometimes, too, but the weight loss journey has shown me to see the progress. Congratulations on your insight!

    Well said. I have the same problem. I want to tackle everything in one day!

    Awesome! You are on a roll, girl! I'm that way too with big projects so I know exactly what you mean. We are all learning. With each success, a little seed is planted that says "that wasn't so bad" so we will be more likely to do it again. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon
