Easing Up a Bit, Every Once in a While…


I hate to admit it, but I can be my own worst enemy.  I have a lot of things I want to do – activities and projects I come up with – and once I set a plan in place it can be hard for me to deviate.  Partly because I like to keep my word, even if I’ve only entered into “an agreement” with myself, and partly because I like to see plans through.  (Please refer to this post where I mention that I have double-stubborn potential, being a Taurus born in the year of the Ox)

That said, every once in a while I do use my common sense and ease up on myself. This weekend is perfect example.  I was planning on spending most of Saturday out and about – taking photos and doing research for a feature I was going to post on Tuesday.  The problem?  A very busy week and an “off” sleep schedule left me wiped out by the time Friday rolled around.  Bull-Headed Melody would’ve stuck to the original plan and dragged through Saturday’s slated activities.  Thankfully, “Give Yourself a Wee Little Break” Melody prevailed.

I decided to re-arrange my blog post calendar a bit, and spent Saturday relaxing and spending time with hubby instead.  He certainly deserves an un-frazzled me, as do I.  The planned feature will still be completed, just a little later on.  And though I didn’t complete that which I’d originally planned I’m content, for I’ve taken one baby step towards something that will likely be a lifelong challenge for this “wanna do” gal: balance.

Warm regards,

p.s. In the interest of easing up a bit, I pulled this post’s photo from my files instead of scurrying to take something new.  The photo was taken last year at a friend’s house.  Thank you for setting a beautiful table, B.L.!
