"Slow and steady wins the race." -Aesop, The Hare and the Tortoise
So here we are, fourth day of the year and the excitement of a fresh, clean start is already being replaced by the mental clutter of all I want to accomplish in this new year. But I need to remember slow and steady wins the race, right? Ali Edwards offered this gentle reminder to all of her One Little Word students over at BPS. Have I mentioned I am taking this class? I know, I know...what am I thinking? I am supposed to be clearing stuff off my list, not adding more, right? Well I am so happy I decided to add this class to my To Do list. The class spans the entire year, at the end of which we'll have an album celebrating our word and the journey it takes us on. So far the class content and projects are simple, doable, and inspiring. And I love seeing all the other students' words and pages. It just feels good to get to know my word, embrace it's meaning, and be inspired to make art again (the holidays really stole me away from making art). Now I haven't completed anything from class just yet, but yesterday I was inspired to make a little art piece to celebrate my word.
Now I am still doing my best to keep up with the organizing challenge, too. But it is truly becoming a challenge, and it's only Day #3. Day #3 is the kitchen cabinet with all our tupperware--which I seem to organize over and over, but it still stays a mess. I'll have to see what I can get done today when I get home. Every little bit helps, right? Slow and steady!
