It’s a marathon, not a sprint
So, it’s Christmas Day and I may or may not have been drinking wine already but I have some thoughts I wanted to get out.
I’ve been realizing lately how I approach life can be a teensy bit helter skelter. New project? Head first, go! Next holiday to plan? Head first, go! Run, run, run, it’s a race my mind whispers. Well, it might indeed be a race but it’s a marathon and not a sprint.
I’ve been trying to remind myself of this and believe me, it hasn’t been easy. Especially when I see other lovely blog ladies who can hammer out projects in record time and I’m still re-threading my sewing machine.
But I’ve been feeling the need to plan things more carefully, not down to every tiny thing but just actually have a general plan in mind when I start, a cohesive vision. Maybe a goal or two, hell, why not? So that’s my mantra for the time ahead “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” This isn’t to say I don’t want to pour my heart and soul into my craft, because I do. I just want to have something to show for it at the end. Enjoy the race, peeps. Just remember it isn’t a sprint it’s a goddamn marathon.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
