This week, I worked 51.6 hours, even with Labor Day off. Today was my day of rest. So – what did I do?
I started removing wallpaper.
“Carole – are you crazy?”
Now, don’t get me wrong. I did sleep until I was ready to get up. I did lounge around on the beach for a couple of hours. I got the grocery shopping and laundry done. So, I started puttering. I didn’t intend to kill myself finishing the job in one day. I’m not that crazy! I just got it started.
Now most people would plop in front of the TV and not move. But I don’t know one single person who sits in front of the TV eating potato chips who is happy with their life.
I’m rarely bored or lonely. My life is very full. With this job – a little too full. I like to have more balance in my life. My life is seriously out of balance right now, and I don’t like it one little bit – but busy season will pass, and my kitchen will be half done. Writing the new decorating ebook has inspired me to get a few more things done around here. OK, that and a tree landing on my house. Hopefully the new windows will be here soon. Which will present another decorating dilemma. Sigh… one at a time…
And I’m not telling you this to brag. I am far from perfect. There are a bunch of other things I should have done instead of pulling down wallpaper.
I’m telling yout this in the hopes that it will inspire you to get off your duff and do things you like to do. Get out and live life.
Let people look at you and ask -“are you crazy?”
And tell them yes indeed!
