Isn't this a beautiful bird?
I was inspired by Lisa Ricard Claro’s blog who wrote about a blue bird. I wanted to share my own bluish bird. I first searched on my blog because I thought I’d written about it. Not. I searched my computer. Nothing. I searched my external drive. Notta. I looked through many photos one by one when the search for “bird” or something with bird didn’t pop up. Husband overheard my moaning and groaning… “where is that bird?”
I finally went to bed. Husband said, “You’re obsessed.”
“No, I’m determined.”
“Determined! Do you think I’m obsessed when I’m doing my school work figuring out a program?”
I personally didn’t think so. But am I? What’s the difference? The ability to let go? I figure once I’ve exhausted all avenues of 1) trying to locate something or 2) solving a problem, then I’ll give up and let go. Until then, I must try all resources. Who else is going to look for something I’m missing? To husband’s credit, he’s searched for things for me and found them! Who’s going to solve my problem? If they did, what would I learn?
My best learning—what sticks—is by solving the problem myself. Whether or not I’m obsessed, is a matter of opinion, but I like to think I’m determined.
If I wasn’t obsessed or determined, you wouldn’t see this beautiful bird that knocked itself silly trying to fly into our window. I rescued him by putting him in a box, but when I went outside to check on him, he was gone. I was happy.
Are you determined or obsessed?
