Easy There, Slow and Steady Wins the Race


So, I’m in my moms’ group Bible study the other day and the question was raised, “What do you do to help you get away from stress and be yourself?” Of course, being the brown-noser that I am (hey, just kidding). I quickly responded, “I have to decorate. And then when I decorate something, I just go back and change it to decorate it again.”

I promise I’m not nuts and I know there are people out there just like me. My husband, Lamar runs. I mean like Forest Gump running. He’s way outta control with it, but that’s aarmoire whole different story.

Since I’m getting back in the saddle on my writing, I’m taking it easy and not delving too deep into big topics. No research, no interviews–yet. But, since I’ve been gone so long, I thought it was the perfect time to share an update to my healthy distraction post. The post was all about putting my attention on something creative to give me a rest from a crazy summer.

Voila! Look what can happen when you need to de-stress. I won’t go through the details of how I painted this dresser two other times before I armoire3finally fell in love with it like this. But I will proudly share that it took me about two years from the time I bought it to get it done. I’m happy about that because I truly believe the saying from the Tortoise and the Hare that ‘slow and steady wins the race.’

I’m winning the race against stress, busyness, tantrums and a host of other things we’d all rather not think about. There are so many projects in my house calling my name. Ohhh, I am going to be sooooo healthy when all is said and done.

    I have a dresser that I would love to paint and have never done it. Love the color you chose! I go and swim laps to destress. There is an Olympic size pool at Ronnie’s Seminary.

      Thanks Ashlie. I have fallen in love with light aqua and it is forcing me to change my décor all over the house. I think you need to go ahead and tackle that dresser–with the goal to simply finish. I know you are loving that pool and I’m glad to hear that you’ve got a good stress reliever.
