Thoughtful/Thankful Thursday: Quote

"You can get anywhere if you simply go one step at a time."

I find that I don't like to take things one step at a time. I like it all done at once. I am not a patient person, and I admit it. I like to have more than one thing on my plate at one time. Multiple projects at the same time. Multiple goals at the same time. I get so board with one thing, that I often have to have many. The problem comes when I feel overwhelmed and then I quit many of my projects and then shut down.

My addiction to many projects drives Matt nuts. He wants me to finish up all of my old/forgotten projects before I start anymore. He likes me to use up a lot of my supplies before I go buy more of what I don't really need. I always feel like the stores are going to quit carrying what ever it is. Matt agrees with the quote from the Dave Ramsey classes that says something to the effect of "If it has to be now then the answer is no." I can understand where he comes from but I also like instant gratification.

Because I have a lack of patience, my kids often suffer. I don't have a lot of patience for when they're acting up. I can honestly say I am the one who needs the timeouts. I am not saying that it is all me, but I can admit that I do overreact. I need to go one step at a time with what I expect them to be capable of, they are still little. With all of Kody's issues I need to be a little more patient with him.

I want all of our debts paid off like yesterday. In my mind it is unfortunate that I have to go so slow with this. I wish I could go back to work to get to the debt free point of my life sooner. It is better however if I stay home with the babies while they are so little. Matt and I disagree with me going back to work after the kids are in school full time. I want to work, and he would rather see me go back to school and finally get a degree.

I have a lot of things to work on and I guess we will see how things turn out the closer we get to other things happening.
