Walking the Walk

Monday, April 11, 2011

Well, I did it. Today was the day. I said I was going to simplify my life, and I did just that. So, on top of what I said yesterday- I quit on 3 different projects today. And it sucked. Bailing on people is the WORST feeling in the world. I had sweaty palms and DEFCON 1 Anxiety (which is in fact the highest, not the lowest in case you were wondering. But I'm sure you weren't. Please just disregard) the whole time I was writing my stupid "bowing out" emails & text messages. Blegh, it was horrible. Because I do want to do all those things, but I just can't do everything. There I said it. I won't do it to myself. I made a decision and I'm sticking to it, even though it makes me feel like such a schmuck.

These little quotes really help me out when I'm feeling uncomfortable - they give me that little extra bit of courage to just suck it up and do it. Plus, thank you all so so so much for your kind words about my last post. I cry every time I read all of them. Even though I don't know some of you or I haven't seen you in a while- it really makes me feel like I made the right decision. And that means so much to me.

On a lighter note: Our Frannie Dog is in heat and it is a flipping nightmare. Our Rottweiler Capone is going ape-crazy with all these hormones going around, and keeping them separated is just ridiculous. How's your day going?


  1. Faring well, I think. I just bowed out of sewing for others for the rest of the year....that sucked. Sigh. But when I read the above, I know I, too, can do hard things. Congratulations! You made it through the worst day...the first. Shall we commence with wine-thirty and meet back here tomorrow?

  2. Yes! Except I think it's gonna be Margarita-Thirty & pie over here. Congrats to you Theresa, sewing for others is fun, but so so stressful. Totally understand sister.
