exactly how I feel

This is exactly how I feel most of the time. Robert says it’s the only child in me. I don’t agree completely, but I do often find myself wanting to do it all and wanting to do it now.

I realize that I have a short attention span and get bored quite easily. My brain works by thinking of things I like to do… events I want to produce… things I want to create… places I want to visit… and somewhere in between I lose steam. I go a little cray cray and often end up with a big headache. These are the times where I need to remind myself to take a deep breath, step back, and reformulate my plans. Just because I decide to let something go doesn’t mean I am a failure.

“Everything has its worth and we owe it to ourselves to own it wholeheartedly” – anamu.

I couldn’t agree more. Have you also wanted to do it all and had a hard time saying no?

    This is me all over! Sometimes the ideas just overflow and I want to do everything at once and then get frustrated when I can’t, I too have to take a pause, just write everything down and then tackle things one step at a time…glad to know its not just me!x

    Ah, this is the story of my life. I feel your angst! It can be so hard to turn our whirling brains off sometimes too. Maybe we should meet for coffee and discuss! ;)

    Yes, yes, and yes! Like you, I see inspiration and projects and ideas everywhere. I want to learn everything, do everything, travel everywhere right now. Add in staying fit, time with the man and the girl, time with friends – overload!

    It all gets done and it is okay to drop some new project that isn’t working out, hard as that is!
