I have trouble finishing what I start. More specifically, I lack commitment with projects that require steady, continual work. I can write on LoveSujeiry.com multiple times a day, creating comedic, reflective, and love inspired pieces on a whim. But what about publishing Love Trips the book? What about recording, editing, and posting The Love Rapidita every Monday? What about picking up the acoustic guitar that remains out of tune, collecting dust on my bedroom floor?
These long term projects remain unfinished, and I blame my fickle and sometimes impulsive Aries nature. Aries become excited quickly yet loose interest just as rapidly. It’s never intentional. Most of the time I simply forget to finish that screenplay or edit that comedic video.
I’ve tried battling my capricious demon. Like a true Capricorn Ascendant, I set deadlines and post to do lists on the eraser board that stands stuck on my wall. I create vision board after vision board to shake me from lethargy and remind myself of the future I am striving for. But here I am, still working through it.
So what can I and my fellow Aries hermanas and hermanos do to overcome our lack of follow through? Work with who we are. To no avail, I’ve tried to change my creative process numerous times. Now, I am accepting me for me, even if it means working on multiple project simultaneously and abandoning one or two along the way. It doesn’t mean I will not succeed. It just means I will get there differently and when the time is right.
My Aries optimism tells me not to fret and that I can accomplish anything. My deep seated Aries insecurities question how. One thing is certain. My Aries ambition and fire will never die. That would make me a Pisces. And so I begin a brand new day with a renewed confidence that I will create when my heart sees fit. It’s the only way to finish what I started.
