One Step Forward…Two Steps Back

I’m getting old.

There was a time when I was able to do whatever needed to be done when it needed to be done. I could easily keep up with the ebb and flow of dirt and clutter in the house and still have plenty of time to be creative and have fun.

Nowadays, I take one step forward and before I know it, I’m two steps back.

I need order!

Living in chaos feeds my depression. My creative nature is being deprived of oxygen.

There is no peace.

I would ask for help but am too embarrassed. I don’t want people to think I have no self-respect.

But I’ll keep at it. If I persevere, order will return. Eventually.

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.” — Samuel Johnson

  1. Found you via…about.me. I felt this myself. When I started blogging I had no idea what I was doing…having so long suppressed the creative aspect of me. Just wanted to encourage you to continue on…keep exploring…and remember each of our unique abilities adds beauty to this world!!! Blessings ~

    1. It’s been more than two years since you GENEROUSLY commented on my post. SO VERY SORRY! I have been distracted by LIFE and have ignored my “followers'” comments and suggestions. If you are offended, I completely understand and apologize for the sentiment. But, if not, I would appreciate any comments you might share about of my random thoughts. I’m still probing my personal opinions about and feelings about life’s consequences I have perpetuated. Truthfully, though, and this may turn you off, I believe in God, the Father of all things, and in His “Son”, Jesus of Nazareth. I hope you don’t leave me [i.e. my posts] but I do hope you at least consider my thoughts. Whatever you decide to do, thanks for listening.

  2. I sure do hear you! As a person who likes to think she is organized, the amount of work I have accumulated in the writing and publishing of my book and with marketing and social platforms, I am truly overwhelmed. I have read a lot about ‘virtual assistants’, perhaps it is time we look into one. 🙂

    1. This is such a stale reply so as to be considered ridiculous or, at least, comical and/or, more likely, offensive! Yet, I do appreciate your prior comments and ask that you consider not completely “blowing me off”? I would not blame you for ignoring me, but I would appreciate any comments that might come to mind about what the hell ever I may say in future. Is more than one year an acceptable request for a stay of execution?! FYI, I am a citizen of the USA, resident of the state of Georgia (“the South,” as some documents may refer), and feel completely misunderstood.
