I breathe deeply, attempting to meditate and relieve tension to quell the inner storm. My task taunts me: I should have this to a science. The way is clear, but I falter and play a game of “what if?” I sigh, it’s just never as simple as it looks. This should be a walk in the park. Instead, I find myself walking a fine line. If I veer off one way I run the risk of utter failure; the other way is a failure disguised as a success. Both actually have merit, if you can believe that! I could plan my failure and be done with it, but I want the line. True success lies at the end of that perfectly straight line up the middle. I need to start soon, or failure will catch up to me anyway. My choices: deficiency, enough, and abundance. I want enough, but will likely end up with one of the other options, and they both lead to more work. I sigh again and get started. Enough is a pie-in-the-sky sort of dream for the home economist, and I won’t let them leave the table hungry. I begin, and hope I will find a use for the leftovers.
I bow down to you.
Stopping in from the A to Z Challenge to say hello! I have a similar theme called the Goldilocks Zone, where Earth is in a habitable zone that is not too little, not too much, but just right.
Awesome. I’ll try and check it out. 🙂
