I continue to be surprised at how difficult SIMPLE can be sometimes. I worked on these two simple little eight inch squares over the course of five days. Seems like I should have been able to whip them out in one sitting. But, I couldn't.
The same applies to my trying to do an About Me spot on this blog. You'd think that would be simple... and quick. I've been mulling it over for six weeks.
I attribute some of that to the fact that my life has transitioned so much in the last decade... and I still haven't gotten comfortable with all the changes. The "I am..."s have changed. Most of the "I believe..."s have not.
I believe in God, in family and doing what's right... even when it is hard... and especially when no one else is watching. I believe that being nice matters... a lot. I believe that we are responsible for our own lives and our own happiness and that there are consequences to every choice we make... good or bad. I believe not making a choice is still making one.
I believe kindness spreads like ripples in a pond when it is tossed out... and so does mean-ness. I believe, if you're very lucky, some people in your life will love you no matter what... and, that some people won't... no matter what. I believe love needs to be appreciated and nurtured and arduously tended... and never taken for granted. Though sometimes I do.
And, there you have it... I am stuck again. Maybe, if I just move forward a bit at a time, I'll get this done. LOL! Or, maybe not. ;)
Hope your SIMPLE goes better this week...
