I stopped to make my bed...because I needed a break --LMAO-- and the quote came to mind: "The journey of one thousand miles begins with one step", or whatever it is. I laughed aloud as I thought: "The journey to China begins by packing...I feel so overwhelmed... I'll never get it all done!!..." those type of thoughts fleeing through my mind as I am fleeing the constraints of time!
The following thought was an epiphany -- LMAO again!!! -- of breaking down the tasks into smaller and smaller tasks; more and more manageable spurts of effort.
Then I realized: The journey to China begins by packing ONE -- and ONLY one -- box!!
Aaaah, sigh of relief! (dork!)
