Perfect timing on this article. My house feels overwhelming to me and it seems no matter how much I kill myself it looks the same. Truth is I’ve never been a great housekeeper and always thought it was because I didn’t have any room. Now I have a house and its the same. lol. Sad truth is…its not the space, it’s me! But I’ve been dying to get back to my crafts and feel guilty about it. So I feel like there is all work and no fun. This reminded me to just get over the house and have some fun, too. My crafts are home improvements and needful things and nothing to feel guilty about. Thanks for this timely reminder!!

That is so right, Jeanie! You’re not going to wake up one day and say, wow, I wish my house had been cleaner. But you might wake up one day and wish you’d done more things that you’d loved and that filled you with joy. Obviously we all have responsibilities, but we have to have some fun too!!

Great entry! And reminder… I was putting together a graphic piece just recently and I found this quote by Mike Ditka: “Success is never permanent, and failure is never fatal.” It moved me move on a decision to go after a dream of mine… Reading this thoughtful post was timely! Keep up the great work! Dawn

Hey Dawn! That is a great quote. Going to save that one. Thanks for stopping by!

Always timely. Never feel too sad about the impermanence of things. Reflect on the many people that have gone before us and their thoughts and desires. Think about what little blips in the history of mankind and the universe we really are. Make the most of what we have and the short time we have to do it. Above all, always love those closest to us. Hope this doesn’t sound too schmaltzy.

I LOVE it, Dad!! :-) Not schmaltzy, just truth. Thanks for your words and wisdom.

[…] and “pontificaty” that last paragraph was, and that’s fine. Mostly because it’s true.  I’ve written about it before and reserve the right to write about it […]
