I am the first to admit I have a problem with projects. Usually I finish one, then add two... or heck! sometimes three. Ugh! That's been my pattern for most of my life. I am sure that somehow my self- esteem is tied to my accomplishments, but we can save that deep subject for another day. Lately, I am feeling different about how I want to spend my time which afterall, makes up my life... I keep thinking over & over in my head, is this how I want to spend my time? We have to pick and choose how we spend our time and I am thinking I would rather do family history or go fishing.
In our family room we have a jukebox that used to belong to my Dad, along with a gazillion 78albums. When we would visit, our girls would put dimes in and dance to the way oldie music. Fun times, not a family heirloom however.
Today, the records have a layer of 13 year old dust. My intentions were good, but no time. As I started to tackle the project of listening to records to see which ones to put in the jukebox, I felt so overwhelmed. That's when I had my aha moment. I DON'T HAVE TO KEEP THEM. It's not that I don't love them, but I would be ok without them, which would allow someone else to enjoy them. So I realize that it is okay to sell them and move on. Project done and I am a bit happier and feel a little more empowered :)
