Sometimes I just need a little time
to get sorted in my mind
Some space away from the usual
to get into what I need to do
I love a change; I thrive on change
I also dread and procrastinate about change
but I really need change
to get me jump-started again.
What was overwhelming yesterday
now seems doable.
this is about dealing with my late mom (and living dad’s) household… I couldn’t bear the thought of even beginning yesterday, due to the immensity and seeming finality of the task, yet today it all seems possible, bit by incremental bit. On a whim I came here (with the younger kids in tow) just to finally view it, and now I find myself starting to actually deal with it (though I didn’t expect to be able to do that). I publish this by way of encouragement for anyone going through anything similar.
Nts: Start with the fringes of the “forest” (e.g. the closet full of old towels and sheets no one would want) if you can’t deal with the CPU (e.g. the memorabilia and/or file cabinets); a single “tree” is a start, and leads to a few.
