I sit at my desk, thinking about beginnings and not sure where to begin.
Well, ironically, I am looking forward to the school year beginning so I will have more time to work uninterrupted on my various projects. As the Summer wears on, I feel less and less motivated to do anything much less my longer-term, more energy, more to clean up and put away and take out and put into place. So I don’t bother.
Speaking of which, I need to begin my chores on a more excited level, too.
I love all the school supplies on sale.
I am not looking forward, and I am, to Katherine’s semester in Scotland starting. I know she will have a blast. I am not sure how well I will endure.
I am excited to begin using my new antique desk. This desk has served me in its make shift way – though it is too high for a desk and since it has no drawers, I have ended up with stacks of stuff on the floor around me all the time. I just don’t like it. Argh.
AND I am excited to begin painting the exterior of my house with Katherine, which we will start once the little kids are back to school.
This is the longest five minutes ever!
I still have a minute and thirty one seconds left!
I am a believer in do-overs.
I feel like this school year includes plentiful “do-overs”. My choice lies in the willingness to accept what is and not judge myself for doing-over again.
I am excited about a massage I will get during the first week of school. My body wants to begin feeling like itself again!
I look forward to new beginnings with Writing Camp, too. I have lots of new ideas to implement and yesterday’s “A Time to Write” reminded me how much my work is valued. One woman who I knew but didn’t know very well until yesterday gave me an excited hug and said, “You make it all so easy! This class was so great!”
I loved the smiles.
I am grateful I was alert to them.
And now that I’m on a roll, the timer goes off! >> giggles <<
