In honor of Tuesday and to celebrate the excitement and sense of accomplishment we feel when we can ‘take things back’ from RA, I’m going to start writing about the things both large and small that I’m taking back into my control. I fully realize that there may be days where my biggest accomplishment may be just making it through the day but hey… let’s put it out there because it is what it is!
Without further adieu… my first Take It Back Tuesday is…I finally hung pictures and curtains in my bedroom.
Six months after I move in.
For six months, I’ve stood there looking at them lined up against the wall and thought of a variety of reasonable excuses. I’m too tired. I don’t feel comfortable on a ladder. I don’t feel comfortable on a ladder with a drill and hammer. It hurts my wrists to use a screwdriver repetitively.
You know the drill. See what I did there? Ha!
But my bedroom didn’t feel like home.
And you know what…after all those excuses, the ladder was fine, the tools weren’t heavy, the wrists are fine, and my room is almost the relaxing space I need it to be.
I always give myself less credit than i should with things such as this.
What are you taking back?
