Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. ~Carl Sandburg
There never seems to be enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do. It’s as if the Great Magician waves a wand and the day disappears with much still undone. Yes, I do run a business full time, and I’m tired at the end of the day. And yes, I do have a lot of ongoing projects. And yes again, I actually do get a lot accomplished….but there’s so much more I want to do! I just need more time.
We just don’t know when time will run out. I wish someone had emphasized that when I was younger. They probably did but in my youth I thought I had all the time in the world. I had no idea how quickly it would slip away. Now, I realize the importance of prioritizing, nourishing my soul, resting my body, and spending time enjoying the company of the ones I love.
I haven’t been posting as often because I haven’t had much to say. I’m still working (slowly!) on my novel. I am quilting like there’s no tomorrow. This weekend, I cleaned out my fabric stash and shopped with a friend to replenish it. I’ve started an online fiber arts class. I figure you guys are probably a bit tired of seeing posts of my creative endeavors so I set up a fiber arts blog. I know, like I need one more thing to do! Anyway, the title of my fiber arts blog is The Renegade Stitcher. I haven’t posted anything yet, but I will soon.
How I wish I’d had the same interests years ago so I could have started my creative journey earlier. I’ve come to the realization I might never do all I really want to do, so I must fast forward to those things most important. The problem is after all these years I still haven’t decided what I want to be when I grow up…
