Analysis Paralysis

There are a number of things that I want to do at the same time and I cannot choose where to start,

nap (seeking relief)
look at art book
practice drawing
grocery list
make soup (still too hot)
pick up outside-too hot
pick up inside-too hot
read a book (seeking relief)
continue eating kisses-ditto

What I have done since driving home from Sat double duty mtg

wrote out amends (this happened 2 years ago) which will not be sent because leaving lover's house when they're upset is okay when it's the middle of the night and they are yelling at you and won't let you sleep, sometimes when compassion fails it is because assertiveness/self preservation has raised it's head

ate first tomato sandwich of the season

loved up dog and clipped fur mattedness off of him

checked out Meet Up website for Reiki one tomorrow that an acquaintance invited me to attend

also looked into Artist's Way meet ups of which there are none nearby

wrote my blog and tried to combat my feeling that I waste a lot of time.

There will always be more things that I am interested in than what I can accomplish. Could be ego taking over trying to convince me that the more I do, the bigger I am. Down ego, bad dog!

What's good about today is that the answer to almost everything is gratitude and acceptance. Neither require money, special equipment or planning. Just practice.


  1. Just sounds like a typical Alanon or Alcoholic to me...either that (how you are) or do NOTHING, and sit on pity pot. I like your way better.

  2. Practice keeps us moving along the path.

  3. and practice makes perfect.

    have a lovely week.
