Have you ever wanted desperately to have a room in your home finished, but the small details — the finishing touches — just seem like mountains to you? In reality, they’re not a big deal, but they’ve gone unfinished for so long, in your mind you’ve made them into a huge obstacle.
And every day, you look at that unfinished thing, you try to convince yourself that it’s really not that big of a deal. You bargain with yourself and try to give yourself an ultimatum to finish. You think to yourself ‘If I could just just this.one.thing done, it’ll be smooth sailing to the finish line.’
But you look at it, you dread it, you put it off…
Until one day, you just decide that enough is enough. You get out your [insert name of required tool here] and you just go for it.
And after it takes you all of 45 minutes, you wonder why the heck you made such a big deal of it in your mind. Why did you put it off for so long? Why did you think that such a simple task was such a big deal?
Yeah. I’ve been there. 🙂
My quarter round trim is finally installed…after two years. Still needs to be painted, but that’s the easy (and fun) part!
Smooth sailing from here on out? That still remains to be seen.
So how are you coming on your projects? What small projects have you turned into mountains in your mind? Are you making progress on them? Let me know how it’s going!
(Shameless plug: I had intended to get lots more done on my kitchen and breakfast room this past weekend, but I spent my three-day weekend moving fellow bloggers from Blogger to WordPress. If you blog on Blogger, but would like to move to WordPress, I’d love to help you out! I promise, it’s relatively painless, and fairly inexpensive. 🙂 Just send me an e-mail at addicted2decorating[at]live[dot]com!)
