Do you ever go through life thinking, “Please notice me.”
Not so much in a way to receive adulation.
But just for someone to be aware of what makes you unique and special.
Sometimes, I feel so much a part of a large invisible group
That I don’t get to enjoy being special for the things that make me unique.
But I stop to think about my specialness these days and realize
I’ve become something of a slug.
I don’t get out and do all the things I once did.
I’m not involved in people’s lives like I once was.
And I’m not sure I know how to get involved in this new setting. STOP
My other problem, which may not be related,
Is that I just can’t seem to get settled in this apartment.
We have too much stuff.
I am now officially overwhelmed with it all.
I have reached my moving quota for life…and passed it!
Now what do I do?
I feel about half moved in.
I’m stuck. There is no way I’m moving again!
Going through the rest of our stuff is one thing too many right now.
I need to follow my own advice.
“Take 1/2 hour each day doing a big job and you’ll soon have it done.”
I guess that’s what I need to do.
Persevere. Move forward.
Maybe I’ll notice the piles getting smaller
And the last of the boxes emptying.
Maybe I’ll be freed to serve others more
When I’m not so overwhelmed.
Or maybe I’m just horribly lazy?
Ah I’m sorry for that overwhelmed feeling. I can sympathize. Also for not being sure where you fit in your new “place” whether it’s work, church or wherever. You’re right, we wrote on the same topic last night. I will pray for you this weekend, that you can accomplish enough to deplete some of that overwhelming stack and that you can encounter a new friend! 🙂
thanks for your kind comment carol. i hope to make some progress on my to-do’s this weekend as well as upcoming ones.
as far as friends go. i think i have enough. i just haven’t spent enough time with them to get to know them well.
I can absolutely relate… it is far too late into the evening… or you could say it is way to early in the morning… but I too am overwhelmed with the list. Sigh.
But I like your approach – sit back and think about why and then tackle it. (And I love the tactic to tackle it 30 minutes at a time. I am implementing that one first thing tomorrow!)
G’night Five Minute Friday Neighbor – here’s to finished projects and accomplished goals!
