When people say to me: "How do you do so many things?" I often answer them, without meaning to be cruel: "How do you do so little?" It seems to me that people have vast potential. Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever.~Philip Adams
This quote is appropriate because I got mad at myself last night. I was perturbed due to the fact that once I got home from work yesterday, I sat on the couch, and basically, my butt got glued to the cushions. I don't know how on earth it happened since my to-do list is 10 miles long right now!?! I should be making final preparations for the trip, and I should be tidying up the house - so that we don't have to come home to a pig-sty...........Why?! I asked myself did I just sit there, and do nothing!. I remember complaining quite frequently about how there isn't enough time in the day to do all of the things I wish to accomplish, but who's to blame when I am wasting perfectly beautiful sunlight to sit on my rumpuss.....ME, that's who.....no one else.....ME.
I'm just being extra hard on myself right now, I don't do it all the time. I'm just attempting to keep myself motivated so our trip doesn't creep up on us like they usually do. I am a notorious procrastinator, and it really stresses me out when I allow that to happen. Okay, so, I'm stressing about low-stress........how the heck does that work?! Breathe in......Breathe out........I suppose a freak out on top of excitement is a weird combination of feelings, but it keeps things interesting, don't you think?! Enough about that.
The artcard above was made about 2 weeks ago, although I added the black and thin blue border after the fact - FYI. I really like the message this one conveys, simple yet powerful. Sometimes it takes people longer to find what's hidden beneath layer upon layer, it may be years, possibly decades before you realize a true passion or hobby or (fill in the blank)......the story I shared with you about what I've been through a few posts ago, was a heartfelt message that I was deeply compelled to share......within my story were twists and turns that I didn't expect. As some mentioned in comments, there's a silver lining and I truly do feel that everything happens for a reason.
Without climbing in the picture, I reawakened the passion that I have had for photography in an all new way. Here I am taking photos like mad, and getting positive feedback from what I produce. Even though this is not where I intended to be initially, this is where I am, and I am pleased with where I've ended up so far........as the title suggests, "You Never Know What's In Store."
What are your hobbies or passions? And did they happen by accident or.....
