“Advice-Given and Received”

Standard
Advice-Given and Received

At the beginning of the new year I made a commitment to myself that this would be the year I’d finish writing my story. I’ve been working on it for more than half my life, picking it up and putting it down. There isn’t any better time in my life to finish it then right now. However, I let everything else get in the way, and think of all the projects I have to do first.

Today in talking with a friend she reminded me of the advice I once gave her. To cut out a few hours a day of uninterrupted time to accomplish your most important goals. It’s the second time in the past two weeks that I’ve heard the same advice. I already know how to do this, but I let my mind become clouded by other things. What I’m really doing is procrastinating. Have you ever done that when you’re at the start of a big project. It seems overwhelming, but it only seems that way until we get started.

So I thank my friend and my son-in-law for the reminder. I have no shame in admitting that I have such good advice to give others, but sometimes can’t find the answers for myself. Like a boomerang what we put out there eventually comes back. I’m grateful that others ask my advice, and I’m honored when they are able to give it back.IMG_0998

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
