When was the last time you amazed YOURSELF?
Last week, I needed to start a new journal so I grabbed a notebook. (I use single subject spiral notebooks…because I’m the epitome of fancy.) But once I opened it I realized it wasn’t new. It was the journal I’d started….four months TO THE DAY before. (And no, I don’t start on the first of the month, because I’m haphazard like that, lol.)
You must excuse the terrible handwriting that’s only meant for me to see, but here’s what I wrote:
(The teachers who tortured me as a child about my handwriting would be bitterly disappointed in the mess I churn out and yet I’m still considered to be a functioning adult…most days.)
If you’d asked me at the beginning of last month, when I’d already been in my NC place for a week and a half, I would have told you that selling my place was taking forever and felt like a nearly impossible task (it took three contracts and three closing dates to actually complete a closing). It took four months from “it’s time to do this” to “done”.
Four months to arrange the sale that then fell apart on closing day, find a place to live in a state where I don’t really know anyone and a town where I didn’t know a soul, and to move, sight unseen (under threat of hurricane) HOPING my stuff would make it.
When I realized that, I was amazed by myself. (Not that it’s some huge, amazing feat, lol….perhaps I’m just easily impressed.)
Oh, and I managed to write and publish a few of books during that time…and to think I often consider myself to be a slacker, lol.
What can you do to amaze YOURSELF???
