It's just one of my many self-proclaimed titles. I've had this one for a very long time. Sadly, it's gotten worse in the past few years. I know there are a lot of Golden Gate Bridge things in life. You know the type, you just get finished and you have to do it all over again? I get that. Dishes, laundry, cleaning house. Even if it's ever done, entropy hits, life happens, and it's a mess again. But that's not what I'm talking about.
If I were to go through my house and make a list of unfinished projects right now, I'd probably keel over dead from the overwhelmingly, shockingly long list of them. I'm terrific at getting started, being motivated, all gung-ho for a thing. But it's not long before I'm distracted or busy or uninterested or whatever, and the thing slips to the back burner. I see it, but just can't quite get back to it. Then one day, it just falls off the stove top. Usually next to the counter. So I can't see it at all any more. And being that I'm a visual person . . . well, out of sight, out of mind.
So I continue on with my little life, replicating this same scenario up to a dozen times a day. At times I think that I've learned to subliminally ignore all those undone tasks for self-preservation. But then there are those days. Those days when I'm acutely aware of them. I gaze over them, wishing I'd have dealt with them before, frustrated with the real estate they occupy in my home and mind.
How apropos - I began this post nearly two months ago. Not surprisingly, I didn't finish what I began. At least not when I began it. Ha! Ha! Back to your regularly scheduled post...
What's a girl to do? Put myself on a project fast, make a list and check things off, run away, or just resign myself to my shortcomings? Anyone have a brilliant, fool-proof method for dealing with such things? This is one case in which it is not good to be the Queen. LOL!
