I read a quote the other day from Steven Covey’s book the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”: “The key is not to prioritize your schedule but schedule your priorities”. This quote really had me thinking about my priorities. Of course, family was my first priority, work had to be at the top of the list (I do like a regular paycheck), and then there is my schooling…but, is that it?
Was I doing my life justice by not making time to do the other things that I love to do? Card making used to be my stress reducer! Without it, is all my stress bottling up? Will I one day explode from all of that bottled up stress and loose my mind? Holy cow, this is getting scary! I am getting stressed while thinking about how not to be stressed!!
Well, if I take Mr. Covey’s advise, I need to schedule time for my card making. It’s a priority! I need to take charge and add it to my calendar with all of my other priorities. I can do this! I am woman! Ok, maybe that last bit was a little over the top.
But I did join a stamper’s Club through Stampin’ Up rep. Regina Moore. This once a month activity is a step in the right direction, right?!?! Maybe I will get moving on my card making again. Maybe my family will start getting their birthday greetings again. Maybe I will submit something for publication again. The inspiration is endless! Stamp Happy L
