Progress and Projects

Rachel in the Pool

Today has been a wonderfully productive day for me!  I am a person of many projects.  I get excited about one thing, and go into it with all my heart… until I discover something that excites me more, and then I go into that full-fledged, and so on and so forth.  The result of this is that I end up with half-finished projects everywhere.  Half-finished stories, drawings, maps, I even have a half-finished cookbook (a compilation- not my own).  Today I woke up, looked around my room, decided that this would not do, and decided to get to it and start finishing things.

So.  What did I finish today?  Well, nothing, of course.  But I made progress, and that is important to me.  My bed-coverings have been washed, I exercised for 45-minutes (still not a bunch, but more than I was doing before), I wrote a piece of flash fiction (click here to read it!), I uploaded eight-days worth of Photo-of-the-Day (I am taking pictures every day, even if I don’t post them) and I nearly finished my In-And-Out-Of-Reality colored pencil drawing… the only thing left to do is Bullseye (yes, the horse, like from Toy Story) which I was going to do, but my mum needed the table for dinner.  I will probably color him tomorrow.  I also cleaned out my mp3 player and am presently reloading songs on to it.  All in all, I got quite a bit accomplished today (for me) and I feel great!  Usually when I push myself to do things, it feels like work, but not today.  And that’s totally awesome.

Tomorrow promises a picnic with Bryan (weather permitting) so this break from work is proving to be a nice respite thusfar.  I’m even excited to exercise more tomorrow!  If I get the opportunity, I may even jump on WiiFit again tonight (if I can get the tele).  I feel great, and it’s totally awesome.

something to think about

"You know, I don't know if you'll understand this or not, but sometimes, even when I'm feeling very low, I'll see some little thing that will somehow renew my faith. Something like that leaf, for instance - clinging to its tree despite wind and storm. You know, that makes me think that courage and tenacity are about the greatest values a man can have. Suddenly my old confidence is back and I know things aren't half as bad as I make them out to be. Suddenly I know that with the strength of his convictions a man can move mountains, and I can proceed with full confidence in the basic goodness of my fellow man. I know that now. I know it." ~ End of Act I in the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
