You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

So Far....So Good


As a lifelong procrastinator I have enjoyed little success with keeping  New Year's Resolutions. Try as I may,  by the middle of January I am already feeling the sting of disappointment as another promise "withers and dies."  I am an optimist at heart and despite my grim failures I journey on. I have hope. On December 31, 2018  I resolved to read more books;  two per month to be exact. I am happy to report, SO FAR! SO GOOD! Earlier this month I read 

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, 

by Gail Honeyman


and yesterday I finished 

The Woman In The Window, 

by A.J. Finn




I loved them both.  Feeling a bit self righteous today I settled down with my February selection and began to read.  A page or two in I remember the unfinished knitted booties I had started and left undone.  The  supposedly "quick gift"  I was making for a friend who is expecting her first baby. I began  knitting them over 7 months ago and she is due to deliver any day now. Oh well, book down and needles up.




Maybe I don't have a procrastination problem after all. Maybe I have a time management problem,  either way...

 something's got to give.

 PEACE AND LOVE
