Enjoy the Process
Our new motto from our friend Enrique. When we're frustrated with wanting things to happen quickly, tired in the work, and ready for it all to be over, we remind ourselves to just "enjoy the process." I think it's a great motto for so many things, not to get bogged up in the details, but just enjoy the process that will one day result in a finished result!
I'm reminding myself of this today. I'm having doubts about the color we chose for the rather large living room. When we first started painting it looked pretty dark and "orangey" (we wanted tan), but we kept going with it and I even stayed up until 4am this morning finishing it up!
But I'm liking it less and less, instead of more. Steven describes it as "burnt orange" and we really don't like that connotation since it's the color of our college arch rival! He just told me we could repaint it, but I'm trying to decide if it's worth the effort, probably 5 or more hours of prep and painting. I can't believe I took off all the tape this morning (see it in the picture). Oh well, we'll update later on our decision but here is the room so far...you can see how it looks orangey in the 2nd picture :-/
Must remember, ENJOY THE PROCESS!!!
