I just finished a semi-marathon of HGTV shows. I love watching the experts work their magic and then see the excitement and emotions of the home owners during the reveals.
I feel such inspiration and look around my home and imagine all of the cool things I can do. Heck, I've even imagined applying and getting on one of the shows for a home make-over of my very own.
Today, for whatever reason, it hit me that I do quite a bit of watching but not a whole lot of doing.
Then, I started going on mental tangents:
-"How much time have I wasted watching?"
-"What could have I had accomplished with all of the time I've spent watching the shows?"
-"Am I addicted to the happy feelings from the reveals?"
-"What am I avoiding?"
-"Am I avoiding anything?"
-"Am I thinking too much about this?"
Fortunately, I snapped out of it and cut myself some slack. However, I did take a look at my DVR queue and saw that over 2/3 of the shows I have set to record were HGTV shows. Perhaps cutting back might be a good idea.
So, today begins a "grand experiment." I'm going "cold turkey" on HGTV shows and start doing more doing.
Can't wait to see what shows up.
