Like I have said before I enjoy organizing.
Organizing things. The things in my house are organized.
I can organize things, stuff, doo dads etc. till the cows come home
and I'm pretty good at it if I do say so myself.
What I can't seem to get organized is my time.
I stink at time management.
Even at the wise ole age of 32 ;-)
I still think that I can cram a weeks worth of to-dos in one day!
I'll admit I'm a procrastinator at times but
I also have poor judgment on how long things will take.
And then you throw in the whole perfectionist thing and well...
it's not pretty.
A really nice lady I was chatting with at Joannes today summed it up perfectly, she said
"I've figured out that I am not as remarkable as I think I am."
So true, at least for me.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I think I can handle it
and EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I feel overwhelmed.
It's a daily battle.
For some reason this last week I've been losing. I have not been good at multitasking or well any kind of tasking. I felt like I had a million things to do but didn't even know where to start!
So I did a lot of time wasting because I felt so overwhelmed.
I just needed to stop and gather my thoughts.
Instead of working on my blog I have been doing some fun things like making a ton of to do lists, balancing the checkbook, writing up a budget for the livingroom redo, organizing and purging, getting this magical doo dad (that will hopefully help me simplify and organize my life)
I know how to party, right?! Whoo Hoo!!
My brain is starting to feel less cluttered.
I'm so glad I slowed down and took a step back instead of trying to do it all. It's another step in the right direction towards having more balance in my life and cutting myself some slack.
So today I feel victorious!
And tomorrow I will be back with a post about a really simple but makes a big statement party decoration.
Hope to see you then!
