Okay, let's talk. I love reading your comments, they really do make me think. You've convinced me that I need to cut myself some slack. Why is it that we women expect so much more out of ourselves than we do others?
I would never dream of asking you why you've had nothing hanging over your sofa for over a year now. Nor would I point out that one of the drapery panels you made for the living room was hung with the pattern upside down. How about those frames you painted red above the mantel? I certainly wouldn't point out to you that they just aren't working for me anymore.
Yet, these are the things that can keep me from enjoying my cup of afternoon tea and a good book, if I'm not careful. My mind can wander to my to do list quicker than anything.
Taking the time to enjoy the life we are trying to create is so much more important than checking one more project off our to do list.
I say we give ourselves permission to take the weekend off and just relax...sit on the porch, have another cup of coffee, visit a friend, read a good book or even immerse ourselves in Lifetime or Hallmark channel for a movie or two. What is it that you would love to do, if you just didn't have so much to do? I say...let's just do it.
