Too much thinking, not enough working, I guess

I sort of started this blog to chronicle my move from the West to the East.... altho, I haven't really written much about that, yet. Right now I'm in too much of a panic mode; trying to get the house tidied enough to be listed for sale and all that entails. The house of a "messy", that's a reason to panic. For some reason I keep being told "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." Which is supposed to encourage me, I know. But this morning, in a bout of tears, I was thinking this..... "Well, somewhere along the line, you get full. You have to stop eating, at least for awhile. Eventually, the elephant starts getting stinky. Then starts to rot. You can never, ever eat a whole elephant. So - there really are some jobs that are not humanly possible." Cleaning my home may be one of them.

  1. What a great analogy! I'm going to borrow that the next time I am being faced with a huge task. Eat an elephant one bite at a time...

    That's sort of like "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".

    Good luck with your journey!
