Our house is up for sale and that means I have to prepare to move. I hate moving although I have done it too many times to count. I should be an expert but I am not. I hate packing because it reminds me of all the junk that I hold onto for no reason other than, "I plan on finishing that project soon!" I have come to realize - ok, I have always known that I am great at starting things. I have thousands of ideas, some crazy, some not so crazy, creating chaos in my brain. I am very good at thinking up ideas but not so great at the follow through. If I were to take a look in my garage I would find the following:
A) lots of stamps, paper and gizmos for making cards, etc.
B) lots of jewelry that I tried to sell at home parties
C) lots of home decorative items that I also tried to sell at home parties
D) lots of crafty items that were purchase because I had a great idea to make something fabulous
E) lots of candles because I just can't resist good smelling things
F) lots of note cards, thank you cards and stationary because I am always having good intentions of sending little cards to people
G) lots of things to make my own jewelry
The list could go on and on. I get started on an idea and I rush out and get whatever I need to accomplish the task but usually lose interest before things are finished. I am not proud that I am like this, it's just a fact, a crazy part of me, like it or not.
In my own defense I can finish some things. I started, stopped, started, stopped, started, stopped, started and finally finished school. I now have my official diploma for my Masters degree to hang on my wall with my Bachelor's degree. They look nice together and they are a great reminder to me to keep pushing on the important things no matter how long they take. Now, if they would just help me get a job!
