the one thing


Once upon a time, in a land called Manhattan, I was feeling out of control and overwhelmed by life in general. I was dating a wonderful and wise man, whom I'll refer to as MMB. A fellow Gemini, MMB knew that trying to accomplish everything at once would inevitably lead to giving up and doing nothing; avoidance was a road well traveled by the both of us. "Take care of the little things first," MMB advised.

He was right. Baby steps lead to huge leaps of faith. Accomplishing smaller goals builds confidence needed to take on larger tasks.

I was reminded of this very recently when it occurred to me that trying to win games of Poker Superstars Online was not a minor goal, but was in fact a form of avoidance behavior. And losing just as many games of Poker Superstars Online was not going to help pay the hospital bills that had me feeling so overwhelmed in the first place.

Remembering MMB's words of wisdom, I said to myself, "Gemini, take stock. What, exactly, are you juggling?" I made a mental list and accomplished my first goal by getting out of bed. YAY! Rather than reward myself by going back to bed, as a deterrent, I removed the sheets and washed the laundry that was threatening to overtake my closet. I was on a roll. After some more light housekeeping, I felt ready to move on to something bigger. But it had to be fun, so I finished the painting my friend commissioned at the end of November. It turned out really well and gave me a huge boost, especially considering the minor boost my checking account will receive. I think it'll be dry enough to ship later this week. I hope he likes it.

Yesterday continued the trend of creative motivation, and I finished rewriting the opening to TJB Book Five. Hopefully, one of us will come up with a better working title that won't reveal anything to our readers, but for now, Book Five will have to do. Today I emailed the opening to Jim and crossed off another task on the mental checklist. It feels good.

Now I think I'm ready to finally edit and ship that partial to Alyson. Next up, the hardware store. That bathroom floor will be finished by the end of the month, damn it.

Hopefully, somewhere out there, MMB is having a run of really good karma for continuing to affect my life in positive ways without even knowing it.
