I’ve been a little discouraged this week as I trudge my way through February and the silence of my empty nest. For some reason I thought I was further along in my 5000 keys project. I was even more discouraged this morning when my latest key checked in at #874…
I keep a page of numbered stickers to track my key progress (and to use when documenting the keys). I didn’t use the stickers for the Feel Good February keys because I photographed those keys in largish groups and, frankly, I was anxious to get them catalogued and out into the world.
When I started taking photos of the new Template 4 keys I went back to my handy page of pre-numbered stickers. Yes, the stickers I did not use on the Feel Good keys. Hence my thinking I was at key 874 when I was really at key 905.
I am working to shift my spirit into joy at having cracked the 900th key milestone and away from disappointment in myself at not noticing my errors and having to redo things. Again. I am taking the time to correct those errors; I suppose that’s something.
And 905 keys. I suppose that’s something else entirely.
note to self: “good job Kath, keep going”
Here are those latest keys – deleted from Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter; then renumbered; and – of course – rephotographed:
Here are the keys from Template 4 – I had to redo this photo too (don’t ask – just be glad it’s done – I know I am).
