IS THERE SOMETHING HANGING OVER YOU?

The theme at the "Three Muses" challenge this week is "Choose your own theme but include a favourite quote".

Is there something you don't want to do but you know you should do it?
Is there something you know you want to do but you are hesitating?

Is there something hanging over you?



Before I started blogging, I hummed and hawed.
Would I have enough to blog about?
Would anyone read it if I did?
If they read it, would they find it interesting?
And so on.



I corresponded with two favourite bloggers, both blogging friends, 
one said
"Just do it"
and the other said
"Just do it" but in more words.



So one evening I was browsing the Web, and I thought,

I'll just do it
and I did
and it was done
just like that.

Do you have something that you have been putting off?

Like this flower with a pile of ironing?





Just do it, and it's done!

  2. Easier said than done. I am a terrible procrastinator. Even though I know I'll feel great when it's done and dusted.

  23. Hi Sheila I'm back to answer your question...My stair picture is infact a collage of 6 different stairways, the little girl adds a relatable human element to it. I love doing stairway collages because they mess with your mind. Thanks for asking.
