Some days, I feel like I’m spinning my wheels. I think I’m cruising along, but really I’m stuck in the mud.
It doesn’t matter how much we plan, or how fantastic an idea or project is, there is always that one missing piece of the puzzle preventing us from completing the task and calling it a success. Even when I accomplish something, one tiny part of me knows that it could have been better.
My current mud hole involves an inability to secure a particular item for a benefit that we are hosting, and an inability to secure a location for a production that we are putting together as our next benefit. In both cases, all of the other components are in place. There is no reason for either of these projects to fail, especially considering that any money raised from them will benefit the cystic fibrosis foundation. When it comes to charity, even if the event fails in your eyes, it is still a major win, because $1 raised is $1 more than they had five minutes ago. Even so, my heart is starting to weigh heavy and I know that something has to give.
I know that I will find a suitable location and negotiate reasonable terms for the production. And I know that I will secure the item for the current benefit. It’s just that the clock is ticking. I feel pressed for time and stress is seeping in. It’s times like this that I have to remind myself of the reason Walker Bait was created. Sometimes everyone needs that one final push to get them out of the mud and back on track. Each of us has something to offer and can give support and motivation as needed. We just have to be willing to get out and push.
