Coming to terms

It is 9:20 a.m. on a Saturday.  I have been up and at'em since 6:45 a.m.  In those roughly 2 1/2 hours I have fed Addi her oatmeal, made breakfast burritos for the rest of the gang, gotten my Silhouette machine out along with the 500 pieces that goes along with it, spent approximately 10 minutes trying to figure it out for the 2nd time in the 8 months that I've owned it, then proceeded to pack it all back up (nice and neatly) then feeling down but not out, I got out my Photoshop book and spent the next ten minutes trying to fix another picure.  The photoshop book is now put away, and not a single picture is changed.  In these last 2 1/2 hours I have had an epiphany.  It's major, prepare yourselves , I have finally come to terms with what the rest of my family already knew, and truth be told I knew it too, but was really holding out hope that it wasn't true.  Here it is ...My  "aha" moment for the day....   I AM NEVER , EVER AS LONG AS I LIVE, GOING TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE PHOTOSHOP OR MY SILHOUETTE MACHINE!!!!!!   Ahhh, I feel much better now.  That burden has been lifted.  Some people may call me a quitter, and honestly I am okay with that!!!  I don't think that I am a quitter, I did try to get it, really I did.  Some people are better at some things,and other people are better at other things. Life is too short to spend so much time stressing over it.  I am going to stick with what I know I can do,and become better at those things, and add new ideas along the way. I can make bows, I can make flower arrangements, I can browse Craigslist like no other,  I probably could decorate cakes. I am a creative person, I however am most definitely not the type of person that can use Silhouette machines or Photoshop.  Thank you, now back to your regularly scheduled programming.....
