Focusing

 

Focusing —–to concentrate attention or effort.

 

My multi tasking spirit has gotten me in over my head so many times it’s not funny.

The pride of thinking I can do it all now, is not realistic, but my fantasy world

forgets this.

 

Today I admitI can’t do it all!!!!!!

Prioritizing is a must. Some activities trump others. 

Time and energy does not permit me to do everything I want to do that pops in my head.

For instance time with family and friends is a must.

The last few weeks has been wonderful…. celebrating many birthdays and special occasions

with family and friends.

And then there was Easter where family and friends came together at my house.

Beautiful fellowship!

My dad requires time and attention to his daily needs.

We want to spend time with him, not just to help take care of him.

This takes two days a week.

 

As I said some activities trump others.

I have a big ole list of home improvements and decorating changes I want to do

and tell you about them.

Can’t focus on them now……but soon.

 

Focusing is power.

 

And although I can’t do it all now, I feel powerful.

I am spending precious time with the wonderful people in my life.

 

My home is fairly clean and I have time to focus on my passion of painting.

The upcoming month of May starts off with a wedding in the family.

 

And a vacation is planned for a few days getaway in May.

 

My camera and I will be focusing on getting some wonderful photos to post and/or paint.

 

I am focused on enjoying life and staying focused.

Focused on the things that are important to be focused on for this time.

 

What about you?

April

It’s not an April Fool’s joke….I’m really writing a blog post

after a month of laziness busyness.

 

Taking a deep breath here…. Do you ever have days and days in your life when it

seems there is  no time to breath ……..and savor the gift of life you’ve been given?

I don’t think I’m the only one.  Am I?

Just stuff happening, day in and day out and trying to catch up with yourself.

The faster you go, the faster the calendar pages turn  and when you finally remember to breath,

it’s another month.

Whew…..

 

My busyness during the month of March included  adding touches of spring… inside the house.

Outside, March was not a month to enjoy the beauty of spring.

April has started out to truly be a time of spring awakening. The tulips are finally brave enough to show

themselves.

 

Green Jadeite that was hidden in dining room china cabinet was moved to the small cabinet in breakfast room

where it can be seen. Green is my favorite spring color. Green says “life” and “growth.”

Green is balance and harmony.
