Do you ever feel that there are some lessons in life that you have to learn over and over again?
For me, one lesson that I’m still learning is about time.
I’ve always been a procrastinator. And I always seem to rushing out of the door at the last minute.
We call it last-minute-itis in my family, and I seem to be a chronic sufferer.
There’s a quote that is so fitting for me, and that I’m trying to learn from:
The problem is, you think you have time.
I do seem to have this underlying feeling that there is plenty of time. And then time inevitably runs out, yet I’m always surprised when that happens!
Where am I going with this?
Well, it’s time for another post for the me and mine project. A project I’ve started but failed to complete for the last 2 years. The reason I keep letting the project slip is because I think I have time. Every month I think I have plenty of time to get my family out in front of the camera. But then the end of the month rolls around all too quickly, and it’s just not been done.
This month I was all geared up for taking photos this past weekend. But the weather had other ideas. It was wild out there. Really not the weather for a nice family photo!
In the past I’ve let this trip me up. I’ve abandoned the project all too easily.
But this year I want to see it through. So here we are. A last minute family photo. Me and mine.
It might not be the photo I wanted, or had in mind. But you know what, I still like it.
When I look back at it I’ll remember the wildness of that evening. Trying to get everyone on the bed and smiling, in between crazy swordfights and general before-bed mayhem.
I’m so glad we went for it, and I didn’t just give up on the project again, before it really got off the ground. I need to remember to always choose a less-than-perfect photo of my family over no photo at all!
