I’ve often been told I need to focus. Now for someone who’s very ADD (attention deficit disorder), this mantra makes me want to scream.
I can’t focus.
It’s not possible. It’s not who I am or who I’m wired to be.
I want to do 50 things at once. I’m a wife and a Mom and a Grandma and a friend and a Christian. I wear 25 different titles at least and feel comfortable with all of them.
I’m a writer and an entrepreneur. For instance, I write 5 blogs. Everyone I know wants me to write one. I believe I write all 5 blogs pretty well. I can post and update all 5 in less than 1-1.5 hours a day, and that’s with doing research for fact checking. I’m a thrift store shopper and an interior decorator. I’m a product designer and a speaker.
So which would you choose me to be?
I want it all. I want to sit at the banquet table of life and partake of the feast. At 50, I still believe that we all can have it. So I’ve decided my inability to do one thing is a great gift and I’m going to use it to love life! I’ve quit listening to all the ‘focus’ talk and spend my time listening to God and my own soul.
