April Goal: An Exercise in PatienceSunday, April 3, 2016
Anyway, it's really easy to get antsy with these kinds of things, which is why I chose my April goal to be that of patience. Because, truly, even if everything goes well, it's still going to be another month or more before we can close, and after that, we'll have to deal with painting, moving, and an obligatory trip to Ikea to get new matching things. Of course I am excited! But all of this is a light year away, so it's time to take a deep, calming breath, and wait.
I am not good at waiting, if I am being honest (and I always try to be!). When I have plans I like to get them done right away and progress with my life. This is partly because I am not commonly motivated to get stuff done, so when I do I go into beast mode. Naturally, this tendency of mine is eating me up inside. Can I choose paint colors now? What about getting some new rugs, can we do that right now?
No, we really, really can't. As in, it's physically impossible, so shut up, Liz, and sit down.
