My brain is constantly rotating with ideas. Ideas for books to write, ideas for photos, ideas for crafts, ideas for blogs, ideas for trips, ideas for cooking, ideas for – well, you get the idea. Then it clicks around to the things I need to be doing. For instance, cleaning my house, doing laundry, trimming the vines around the house, weeding the garden, it’s exhausting just thinking about it. I’m not lazy, but sometimes my brain tires me out before I can actually manage to do anything. Sleeping is out of the question. I close my eyes and the rotation starts spinning until I have tornadoes taking over my brain. I once had someone blurt out ” Stop talking about it and just do it.” Easier said than done. It’s hard to know where to start. I have a tendency to be so afraid of failing, that I won’t even try.
But since turning 40, I have made an expanded effort to turn those ideas into tangible things. I feel like I’ve wasted 40 years thinking about things. Now, I want to be doing. So, here I am procrastinating, talking about it and not doing it. Hah! I’m going to go do something.
