One of my favorite quotes

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."

~ Earl Nightingale

    I get overwhelmed with projects sometimes.... our house is a monsterous project and we happen to have a rental unit too... and a family cottage.... and kids's projects.... I often am afraid to tackle one to the detriment of everything else. But in the end everything gets done or progress is towards getting them done. All of course being ongoing and never finished before there is something new.

I remember walking the Rideau Trail which took me 5 years. I'd mark on the map how far I had gone and at first it seemed like nothing at all. But I finished it. Now every time I drive that distance I am so impressed that I took on such a huge mission.

The alternative is to feel like we can't do anything. Such a shame. Yes, time will pass anyways, but so much better to look back and see accomplishments rather than hours spent.... watching TV ... or playing computer games. Time with people or doing things we are passioinate about, or getting done what we are responsible for... all good.
