Wish it were true that I could double myself up sometimes. Be able to tackle different tasks in different places. As you can see from this photo above, with today's high tech gadgets I can be in the same picture twice. But this is just simple trickery. Running from on side to the other when a panoramic photo is being taken. Lots of fun to do, but no practical use.
Do I really wish I could be two people at once? No, not really. Being one Ann is all I can handle! However, like most people I do have times when I wish there were more hours in a day. That there were ways in which I could stretch myself so that I could get more accomplished in said time. When these feelings come up, they don't last long, only a day or two. A simple reminder that no matter how hard I try, I can only do so much at one time. That I'm as much human as the next person. Falling short sometimes of goals set. Making endless to-do lists only to have to carry several items to the next to-do list. Realizing that being an over-achiever is not all its cracked up to be.
So I'll just go on making my to-do's, over loading my schedule, and committing to much all at once. This is just how I operate. Full speed ahead. Always optimistic that I am super woman.
Thank heavens for wisdom though. Because through life and lessons learned, I've come to balance my over-achieving ways with days of play and "do nothings"; of goof off time. I allow myself quiet moments throughout the day to recharge and recalibrate. I've stopped scolding myself when I feel I've let myself down. I'm kinder to me, to Ann.
I'm an idea person, a dreamer, motivator. This I do not wish to change. I'm also a structure hound, scheduler, and task master. This I do not wish to change either. Together these characteristics make the whole of me. The best of me.
