I lost my cool today.  I lost sight of the progress and got drawn into the big world of what’s left to do.  Sometimes it just seems like there is so much to be done and that I can’t keep up.

“How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.”

This old saying is true, but it’s hard to be encouraged by it when there is more than one elephant to deal with.

My house seems to be a mess.  My yard is huge and an overgrown mess.  I’ve started some necessary home improvement projects.  I want to reduce the clutter.  The list goes on and on.  When I lose focus on the positive, I start adding to the list until it seems impossible to handle.

One bite at a time.  I must prioritize and be grateful for the small wins.  Find joy in the improvements and remember, most of all, that I am doing it all to live a more intentional, simple, and happy life.

That being said, the studio re-do is done!  This stuff is gone.



My recipes are all sorted and organized.  From this
