Of course you have. This morning my “kick to my lazy self” was the familiar, why didn’t I save the pictures of previous works. to my new PC. “Cuz you are lazy, lazy, lazy” said the little voice. Sigh, I am, this is one of my lessons in life, .. the battle between the me that wants to do things “my way” and the me that then has to live with the me that doesn’t do something, BEEEE CUZ! (=^_^= a wee rant.. sorry)
I did motivate myself to go up to my husband’s lair and pack a few more bags to take away to the Goodwill. I am getting there. I am from the generation that doesn’t sit still long, we prefer being active/busy. However my body (as wee piglet pointed out) when off balance and needing rest, wants and needs REST. She may be little but she is feisty!
Work well with everyone regardless of their age or position. The opinion of those who are younger may lead to new solutions, and we can always learn from the accumulated experiences of our elders.
Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment. Waiting for the “plan” to come together, then find out days, weeks later that “by golly”, it is not done yet, or you’ve lost the thread of that “great” idea?”
The PL Day 12 Carry Out What you believe in..
Once you have prepared everything to the best of your ability, seize any opportunity that comes your way and take action without hesitation. Express yourself to the fullest.
There are times, when we can fool others, but try as we might, we cannot fool ourselves. Deep down, we know ourselves, even when we try to do otherwise… The truth is within.
When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly. Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)
Remember this from yesterday. I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it. To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is) Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.
I didn’t know that I was so hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it. The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.
Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new, I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it. I have an artistic bent as you all know. The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years. Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.
This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.
