The book-project I can (and will!) finish. But. I doubt the basil will grow into a plant;) Oh dear. Luckily my whole household isn't cramped with unfinished projects. For years I had a large project called "complete all unfinished projects". So I completed my knitting projects, a few sweaters and socks. Completed a bag. Of some projects I thought, no, I don't feel like completing them, so I undid a few knitting projects and gave the thread to charity.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to complete the chair-project:(
I was in the middle of renovating my apartment, moving and in the middle of a divorce. Most people never noticed it (the back of the chair was undone). I never sat in it. I found it really hard to even think of starting work on the chair. And it ate me because I seldom leave things half-way or undone. Until one day last month, I decided that I do not want the chair. It had a negative feel to it. And the reason is that it was my therapy chair, when my life was about to fall apart and I needed something to do in my sparetime (there wasn't very much of that) so that I wouldn't fall apart myself.
Getting rid of the chair really made a difference. First of all, it isn't there anymore to remind me DAILY of what a lousy person I am who cannot complete a project. Which isn't true, so I don't need to take that sort of attitude from a chair! And secondly, the chair is filled with sorrow and sadness and longing and hurting. Of course I don't want to sit in it!
This must be fengshui?
