If you're paying attention to the dates on these prompts. you've realized that I am oh, so hopelessly behind, and that I'm not following any particular order.
I'm so not starting at point A, moving next to point B, and then on to C.
Nope. I'm hop, skipping, and jumping all over the place.
I'm doing what appeals to me, and I'm doing them when I have the time, and when I'm in the mood.
Guess what? The world has not ended. I'm doing what I can, when I can, and it's "good enough."
My home is just now starting to look like Christmas. I love Christmas, and I've always wanted to get my act together sooner. I can sit and wander through December magazines for hours. It's like making art - all the colors, the textures, etc.
But, I will absolutely, without a doubt, drive myself nuts if I attempt to recreate what I'm seeing.
There won't be any wonderfully crafted ornaments adorning the tree You know...those gorgeous ones made out of old sheets of music. There will be ornaments collected over the years, ornaments full of memories that make me grin. Some decorations aren't even going to see the light of day. I don't have the time or the inclination for them. But, you know what? It's all "good enough!"
I want to do it all, you know? Whether it's school, or my art, or my home. I want it to look like the pictures in the magazine, or in the newest art journal that everyone's raving over.
But, none of that...the pics in the magazine or the newest journaling style are quite me.
That test may not get completely rewritten, but some of it does, and it's an improvement. And, it's "good enough."
I didn't get my coworkers' gifts completely bought before today. So, instead, they'll get a present in January, something better suited to them rather than something bought to meet a self imposed deadline. Neither was mad, and both are looking forward to January. Good enough!
Most packages find their way into gift bags, or a quickly wrapped box. Some get the special treatment because I take time to play with what I have...to wrap ribbon, lace, and who knows what to make it lovely. I enjoy it, but I just can't do them all this way. So, I enjoy the process of the few that get some extra attention, and I call it "good enough."
I haven't created my calendars for 2011 yet, but they'll get done over Christmas break, and they'll get to everyone early in January. Good enough!
The world hasn't ended. No one's mad. And, I'm not driving myself completely nuts. My blood pressure's where it needs to be. Good enough!
If I'm doing my best, it's "good enough."
Not perfect, but "good enough!"
