I am one of those people that once I get something in my mind, everything else just sort of stops and I completely get engrossed in whatever it is. Some people would think that is a good thing, but it doesn’t always turn out that way.
There are a lot of problems with something like this… one of the things is that, as long as I am passionate and excited about whatever it is, I am all over it… but if for some reason I get bored, then guess what, it goes straight to the wayside… bam, like that. Whatever I spent the last six weeks or months passionate beyond belief about is just tossed away, and if it sits on a shelf unfinished, then so be it.
I have scrapbooks, craft projects, meal planners, you name it… all of them sitting around my house unfinished because I my passion fizzled out! Ugh it stresses me out that I can’t always follow through with things!
The other thing is that when I REALLY get into something, I lose focus on the other things in my life. My dishes go undone, clothes need washing, and we start eating a lot of peanut butter… I think it has to do with the fact that I am so scared I am going to lose my passion, so I work as fast as I can while it’s still there!
Passion is a good thing too though…. it makes me who I am, and for that I am grateful that I have it!
Okay, off to work on the book some more 🙂
