After all these weeks of working on my cabinet and looking at stripes everywhere, I'm in the mood for something different. I want polka dots.
We're finishing up week 13 and I'm finding it more difficult to keep at bay the part of me who always wants what she wants.....mostly, to do things her way no matter the outcome. I keep thinking about what Laura said more than once: that this experience will be like a roller coaster. I never imagined it meant that I would have to continually struggle with myself, who I am versus who I want to be.
The phrase "I want"? Some friends will ask: "how's that working for you?" It isn't....not in the wood world nor in the real world. So it's time to borrow that "let go" phrase from my last post and let go of everything.
Except maybe those polka dots and stripes. I will be using that oak in my drawers......the bottom, where there are no rules.
