I cannot stop myself

Our kitchen window with stained glass ornaments.

Sometimes I just cannot help myself. I tell myself that some idea I have is unnecessary and I won’t do it and then a day later I go and do it anyway. The impulse is there and I have to act on it. It is probably a smart thing to do as it would just eat away at me until I would do it. The good news is that these things are usually something simple. The bad news is that I am probably the only one who notices the issue that I need to correct.

My case in point is the kitchen window that I decorated with stained glass ornaments, as I always do each year as a part of holiday decorating. I put them up yesterday and I kept looking at them, wondering why I hadn’t placed the middle row in the actual middle. I resolved the issue yesterday by telling myself that nobody would ever know or notice. Today, I went for a glass of water and proceeded to change them.

I just cannot help myself.

Although I told myself that I would not put the containers back in the crawlspace, I have already decided that I am going to do it and pull out a few more Christmas containers for decorating.

My new Apple watch shows that whatever complaints I may have about my sometimes obsessive behavior, that it does, in fact, promote my well being because I seem to be doing quite well in the activity arena. I guess that perhaps I should not complain.

Okay, off to the crawlspace.
