Thinker or doer

I think to much. I dream to much. I analyze to much. I always have been a thinker and I think (!!!) I always will be a thinker. Or call it a dreamer (See this old post...).

It is a part of my nature and maybe that is why I procrastinate so much. Because the thinking process takes so much energy that there is no energy left over for the action. My lists are endless (Love writing lists!!!) but they hardly ever get ticked off. It is like living in a state of constant dreaming, wishing, fantasizing... Waiting...

So this Easter, after all your uplifting and sympathetic comments on my blog post about being overwhelmed and about facing change, I decided to get to action and think, dream and analyze a little bit less. And I have to say I am happily surprised at what I can get done if only put my mind to it, both fun things and not so fun things.

♥︎ Jay started the garden project and I helped him with the dreadful weeding and digging...

♥︎ I started a house detox by sorting, cleaning, throwing, organizing... One room at the time.

♥︎ We welcomed the cows in the back of our garden and picked the first wild flowers.

♥︎ I played Memory with Emmy Bo and got wowed by the beautiful apple blossoms.
♥︎ We had an Easter egg hunt and delicious dinners with friends.

I feel like I have accomplished a lot. It feels good and I am energized and motivated to keep going with my house detox... Nearly there. Half way through my big house. Next up will be my studio. That is a big one. I am so looking forward to have a crafty space to thrive in again once I have given it my detox treatment. And the best part is that after doing all this I feel so much better about dreaming away, thinking and analyzing. Because right now I am actually not only a thinker but a doer too.

  1. I'm a thinker too, addicted to lists and plans, but I also stall out before the actual doing. Congratulations on all you've accomplished! Remember to take a break and a breather now and then. Good luck with the rest of your house detox.

  3. Men du är inte ensam...!
    Man tänker för mycket rätt ofta!

    Här är en till som fick tummen ur och rensade ut i två klädkammare i påskhelgen. Utan stress och utan tjafs tog det bara två timmar allt som allt. Och jag som dragit på det projektet i ett halvår...
    Men det är ju så, alltid roligare att dra igång ett nytt virk eller göra klart det där varvet på stickningen och så ska nån ha mellanmål och hoppla, där var tvätten klar!

    Önskar dig en härlig vårdag!!

  6. Your pictures are gorgeous - you are clever.
    I am a doer rather than a thinker - I do make lots of list but have to get the chores done then crossed off, makes me feel like I have achieved something.

  7. In fact you have to hting before you do. So you're good, aren't you? We should say à dios to sad thoughts immediately. Or we should have like business hours for sad thoughts. Every office is closed for some hours a day. All the best. Regula p.s. There are cows on our neighbour's meadow that look like yours.

  8. I wish I could find the energy to give my little flat a dettox-it sure is in need of one! And how I wish I had your surroundings! It looks beautiful! I've always wanted to go to Switzerland and see the mountains.
    Kram,

  14. Lovely Annette thank you for an inspiring post - I badly and I mean badly need to detox our home as it is overflowing and I am not at all happy with it at the moment. I would be so pleased to hear how you went about planning your detox as I am in a complete muddle with ours - it sounds as if your detoxing has helped free your mind as well and set you free. Always a pleasure to pop in to see you Annette. Sending you big hugs and loves

  15. Oh my goodness! I'm in love with your pics!! The sunshine, the greenery, the cows, the flowers, the cake.
    I'm a thinker. I think think think and feel tired sometimes and again think why I'm doing this to myself.
    But I hope I become a doer like you soon :-) house detox sounds great !!
