Sometimes my creative visions get in the way of clearing the clutter, both in my mind and in my house. You see, I have these two changing tables leftover from baby days. I couldn’t simply get rid of them…I knew so much more could be done with them. A bar cart, a buffet table on the deck, laundry room shelves.
The problem with these great ideas of mine is that it takes me forever to do them leaving me with a neverending to do list. It weighs me down. My brain and home remain cluttered. It leaves me deflated with the fact that I still haven’t checked it off my list.
So when my sister texted me to ask if I had an extra changing table for my nephew to make a lemonade stand, I was more than happy to let it go. Pass the torch for yet another great idea….one for someone else to do!!!!
The lesson from this. I need to let it go. I don’t have to DO every idea that pops in my head. Know that something can find a new life in someone else’s home. I don’t have to reinvent everything. I need to make my to do list realistic so I can feel a sense of accomplishment rather than having the weight of 237 projects waiting and waiting to get checked off. It was so liberating to put that changing table in my car. A huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.
Good-bye Project #237!!!!
