Problem Solving Patience?

So much for having a peaceful, restful weekend!

It’s not happening… my mind will not switch off and have a rest. I did try but ended up spending most of yesterday working on the WIP. I could have read a book, watched TV, or picked up my knitting. I did none of those things. Strangely, working on my book made me feel better. It also made me think more clearly than I have been lately.

So, what do I do now?

Time has become my enemy. I can see it now, lurking in the corner of my office, a sickly smile designed to make me feel useless and unable to cope. Yesterday proved to me that I can cope, but it has to be on my terms.

I have never been a clock watcher and have always taken my time, doing what I want to do. When did everything become so difficult?

I have thought long and hard about this. Something has changed, so is it me, or the jobs I do?

We all have jobs that we would prefer to leave on the table, but also some that we must do, no matter what. Then there are the jobs that we choose to do, even though we hate doing them. I think this may be where I will find what is causing me to lose my time and my patience.

Most of you would agree that marketing is the most frustrating and time consuming job of all, but I have to own up to not doing much of that lately. Then there is housework, but again, she says sheepishly, I haven’t been doing much of that lately either.

I feel better, knowing there is a reason. All I have to do now is find it and send it packing!

I sincerely hope your weekend brings you what you need… XXX

I am busy thinking!
