Once again I got the urge to clean my office. Before I could resist, I had created an even bigger mess than I started with. One pile turned into many piles when I started sorting books, papers, and magazines. As the mess mushroomed, I lamented that I had even started. But there was no going back.
I have wished I was still the organized person I used to be. Many years ago before I went back to work and before I made the move to a house much smaller than the one I live in now, I was organized. Everything had it's place and I knew just where to find it
I've learned there are many things we cannot do, but there are also numerous things we can do, and do well. We shouldn't compare ourselves or our abilities and accomplishments with those of others or with things we used to do. Today is a new day and a new season in our lives. We need to be gentle in criticizing ourselves and others too.
We all have the right to make our own mistakes and learn from them. I'm on a mission to get things done around my house but I'm taking a 2nd look at just how I'm going to accomplish that. Whenever we set out to do something good, we shouldn’t be surprised when the situation gets worse before it gets better. This doesn’t prove that we’re doing the wrong thing; it just reminds us that we need time to accomplish everything
There is a season for everything under heaven. This fall is my season to adjust and accomplish things in a new way.
After a little attitude adjustment it'll be a merrier Monday here at my house
I hope your Monday is a MERRY one too!
