Radishes are so fun, I love how they almost harvest themselves

I don’t know about you but I can’t believe how fast this year is going!  I intended to post every week this year and if you look at my log you can see how well that is going… My son told me it’s OK to post about whatever I’m up to, it doesn’t always have to be about quilting, so I will be posting more often but time will tell about what.

It seems everyone around me is working thru the same issues. We all seem to be finding it hard to focus in on the things that will bring us the most satisfaction in our lives.  As I was recovering from surgery I read an assortment of books on organization and time management but I am already pretty organized.  2 problems I have are; I spend too much of my time doing repetitious things that will never stay done and I try to do everything.  The book I found that best addressed those issues is 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done by Peter Bregman.  Peter reminds us there are only 24 hours in each day and 7 days in each week and it is not and never will be possible to get it ALL done.  So with Peter’s help I am focusing in on my 5 things for this year.  I’m saying NO to trauma drama derailing me from my goals.  Are you with me?  ARE YOU WITH ME!!! Roar, cheer, lets hear it for us and creativity!!!  OK , now go out and have fun.  Play with your toys and create something that makes you smile and have a great week!
