Unbalanced Day

Today was an unbalanced day. I wish I did a better job of sticking to the plan: God's plan for my day. Instead I get caught up in so many things that don't matter. I forget what's important so quickly. I wish I was one of "those people" who knew how to stick to the plan. They spend time doing the most important stuff and letting the rest go. Me: I try to do everything. I try to squeeze it all into one day. I'd put a month into one day if time allowed. The ridiculous part is that the busyness doesn't satisfy me. It's the good stuff that satisfies me: a good book, a page written in my journal, a long walk, some time in prayer, meditating on some scripture, watching the snow fall, spending some cuddle time with my kids and leaving an hour at the end of my day to be with my husband. That's the stuff that keeps me in balance. That's the stuff that satisfies me. Tomorrow I need to remember today. I need to remember how I feel now- at the end of my unbalanced day: depleated. Lucky for me that tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow I can choose again and remember what's really important. When my head hits the pillow tomorrow night I'm going to be satisfied. If you're reading this please say a prayer for me. Pray that I'll choose the good stuff and let the rest go. I'll pray for you too, if you need help finding balance also. We could help each other have a better tomorrow.

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.

Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
