Balancing is so difficult sometimes. So is feeling that I should be perfectly in balance all the time, that swaying temporarily X degrees in this or that direction.

And while I'm on what's difficult, another thing that's difficult to manage is my tendency to take on a project and then drop it and take up another project.

The projects currently sitting around my room in various states of undoneness:

  • installing various hardware, programs, and music CDs onto my computer
  • getting a new band for my watch
  • filing / weeding papers
  • opening the mail from the last 2 weeks
  • taping CDs for use in my car
  • putting away my clean laundry
  • clearing horizontal surfaces for work and craft use
  • setting up the synthesizer
  • getting a bookshelf to put the books in the laundry basket on
  • cleaning off the hard disk of my old computer
  • donating the box of stuff I no longer want
I am fortunate that I am interested in so many things and people and able to have so many things I want...but it does end up feeling at times like I am never going to catch up, and I'm going to be completely inundated with partially processed stuff.

Sing it Seebling. I got those same "Will I ever catch up and feel balanced blues."

I managed to feel better about the half-finished projects once somehow...I can't remember, though.

Maybe something like, um, separating my self-judgement from what I had accomplished? Like "these things are here for me, not me for them, and I can come and go from them as I please"? And when they get done, I feel good, but don't worry too much about the things that aren't done?

Or something. Gotta go! I have about a week's worth of chores to finish today!

these things are here for me, not me for them

That's good. Yeah, I've felt that way on occasion. Should add it to my "arguing back at myself" arsenal.

Yeah, but do they have to be so MESSY?
Hmm, I would say that's the definition of entropy, but it certain has applicability to life. :-)

Does the person who dies with the neatest room win?
...Well if they do, I win! :-) Seriously, I've been a bit obsessed with the appearance of my bedroom these last few months. I've redecorated and kept it very tidy.

Don't go dying on me now...
I can keep one room at a time tidy (although you might find that hard to believe :-), I just can't manage all of them at once...
