This week has been pretty full on for me.
If you know me at all you will know that I like to have irons in the fire, or fingers in pies, or whatever other metaphor you choose to use for staying busy. It just so happens that this week involved a number of those different fires or pies burning me.
That’s not to say that anything bad happened, just that I had an awful lot on, more than usual. It will all hopefully reveal itself in time.
What I have come to realise, and this is where the longest lesson part comes in, is that my thoughts of how bad it is going to be are always far worse than the reality of the task or the problem.
I sat down on Saturday with a daunting headline ahead of me, and thoughts of what I would do if I didn’t make it and whether there was any room to manoeuvre within, but for the week before I had been building it up, along with everything else to make it seem an awful lot harder than it actually turned out to be.
I suppose what I am trying to say is that the longest lesson, and one I am still learning is, it doesn’t matter how hard something may seem or how much work there is to be done, you can do it. Stop thinking about how hard it is going to be and get along.
You’ll find that the tasks can soon be knocked down if you just have the power to stand up.
