Tuesday Tips and Tasks: One Step at a Time

24 Sep

“In order to move forward, you will have to stumble along the way, but every falter in your stride just makes your next step even stronger.”
― Lindsay Chamberlin
My tip for today: Take it one step at a time.

I decided to tackle a little more unpacking and organizing my studio/craft room. After Zumba, I went to Home Depot and bought 3 large shelf units. It took quite a while to put them together, but well worth the effort. The problem was, I had to move a zillion boxes and bins already stacked to the ceiling against the wall where the shelves needed to go.

I also discovered, when attempting to get organized, sometimes you make a huge mess before it gets better. But, I’m going to take it…yes, you guessed it, one step at a time.


This will be an ongoing battle, and will not get done in a day or two. Maybe a month or two, or a year or two.

So, as not to put too much stress or pressure on myself, I worked about 5 hours, then took a break. By take a break, I mean, I went for a walk. It was a gorgeous night.

Tip number two: Take a break and take some pictures.

Here are a couple of pics from my walk.

A lovely sunset. I didn’t find any lucky feathers or pennies. I didn’t save the world by finding any construction nails in the road. BUT, I did bump into a rather large furry creature about the size of my hand.

Tip number three: Always know when to walk away and stay clear of certain furry friends.


I’ve stumbled along the way, but each step is getting stronger.

    Thank you for reminding me that even a little bit of progress is progress. 🙂 Also, I saw a similar furry friend out this last weekend… I wonder if it’s their season??

      Yes, a little progress is a good thing.,thanks! As for the large spider, I was just glad it was down the stree and not at my house. I’d probably never sleep again.
