It’s time for a life overhaul
Would I love to overhaul my entire life?
But sadly, I cannot.
I can overhaul my closet, clothing, shoes, jewellery and accessories.
I can overhaul my business to try and make it easier for me and less expensive in the long run.
I can overhaul my music collection (which I did in 2014) and my stationery collection and my other collections. Thank God there’s few and far between Nancy Drew stuff these days so that has slowed down.
I can try and overhaul the small things in the hope it helps to overhaul the big things.
My health is slowly getting there but there’s nothing I can do about that. I cannot speed it up, nor change it, nor stop it.
My career is meandering along like a small mossy brook where the water bubbles along at its own pace and next year will be ten years since I wrote my first novel and twenty-six years since I made my first piece of jewellery.
But while I’m changing the small things, there is currently no way for me to change the big things. And those big things are so incredibly important and yet so freakin far away. In fact, at this point, they seem non-existent. That they will never happen, regardless of how hard I hope and wish and dream.
I would love to overhaul my entire life but at this stage of my life, I simply cannot. So it is best to go for the small things I can do, and see whether the big things I can’t do sort themselves out.
I was struck by this line in your post: “I can try and overhaul the small things in the hope it helps to overhaul the big things”. Truer words were never spoken (or, in this case written), and knowing that is half the battle.
