Ok, sometimes in the past I have made the same mistakes repeatedly. And, well, what do you know, I’ve done it again. I guess my Mom is right, I am stubborn. Who knew? 😉 Ok, me. I knew.
Several weeks ago there was a lull in my industry – the real estate appraisal industry, not the brokerage. Anyway, I looked at chats where appraisers were getting concerned with the slowing of orders. I was not concerned. I have had a to-do list miles long with things that just kept getting pushed back. I made a good dent in that list! Then the appraisals picked back up.
I overscheduled myself again. AGAIN! I have systems in place to try safe-guard against myself. But I didn’t follow the systems.
And although I do take a lot of things in stride, I should acknowledge that we are renovating a home and moving; then sprucing up our current home and selling. And I have taken over complete responsibility for home-schooling this year. Last year the hubster was helping – it was a joint decision for things to change this year.
I am thankful for the part of my brain that doesn’t stress out when I have a lot to do. But I sometimes it would be better if that part of my brain stopped and sent out warning flairs instead of just rolling with the day!
So here I am again, choosing to be thankful that God never runs out of second chances. Seriously, I would be so mad at myself right now if I didn’t know how to pray and have help forgiving myself. I am so thankful for God’s patience and love; and that he helps us have patience and love when we are running low – in this case I need those things for myself again!
I was going to write that I’ll get this right some day. But I can see that has been my problem specifically . . the “I” part of that sentence. This time around, I’m going to work even more intentionally on praying first and walking forward with God instead of my normal run straight-in to everything nature.
And, here’s a picture of me and Halloween Shrek that I saw at Lowes today. It has absolutely nothing to do with this blog . . . but I saw this blow up Shrek, so I took a selfie with him 🙂
