I’m always wrong.
I present my most recent project as evidence.
I could easily fill five pages lamenting the physical, mental, financial and spiritual strain our kitchen remodel project has placed on us. I could tell you how a six month project became a four year nightmare. I could elicit your sympathy by detailing the heartbreaking and terrifying result of enduring a situation that seems utterly untenable. I could even go so far as to say that year two of kitchen-less-ness brought with it a profound doubt in my ability to complete anything – let alone the expansive home remodel I’d decided to embark upon.
But I won’t. I’ll keep this short.
Just know that, although I was incredibly mistaken in my projection, I did complete the task I’d set out to. And it only took 800% more commitment than I’d anticipated.
Now, if only novel completion were that easy!
