Cate was always the me who did the different things, who pushed boundaries, who walked along the line of 'not normal' that I was always being told I should be closer to.
I don't deal well with the push backs... which is why Cate was perfect. But now I see that Cate's being subjected to the pushbacks that I didn't cope well with. And not surprisingly, I'm still not doing well with it! LOL!
I've curled into my shell and packed up. Not a great attitude for someone who wants to change the world, hey?
CATE, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!
Small steps to make changes, that's the way to go for me.
Here's my positive for the day:
I cleaned up a bean bag fom the local river over the last couple of days. I saw it there, torn, with those little styrofoam balls falling out. I went home for garbage bags but underestimated the number required. So after a couple of trips I've now got the bag and 95% of the balls removed.
Those tiny balls! OMG, they're so hard to pick up and put in a bag! They're electrostatically charged and have a mind of their own. They cling to the plastic rubbish bag, then leap away. They coat themselves in sand and vanish. I was like a crazy person trying to deal with them. So they're still mostly there, and I hope to go back again and have another attempt at collecting more of them.
Here are 2 of the 3 garbage bags required to get the bulk of it removed.
The best thing about this: I live in such a great place, that there is always someone doing a task like this, and I'm glad I got to have my turn tday.
What's your positive story for the day/week/month/year?
