Jack Of All Trades

I'm a Pisces. Just like the fish, I can go in many different directions. In fact, those are the times that feel most natural for me. For years I've been fighting against it. I would love to be the kind of neat, organized, structured person that has everything in it's place and follows a color coordinated monthly family calendar. But, I'm not. I have a system and it works for me. A stranger would never be able to figure it out!
Not only can I go in different directions, but I can do a lot of different things-pretty well, if I may say so myself. I consider myself to be a "Jack of All Trades". I guess the one thing that connects most of my talents is my need to do something creative. Nothing is more satisfying to me than making something out of nothing. Collecting raw materials to create a floral arrangement, scrapbook page, gift or even ingredients for a recipe is so much fun for me. Sometimes, the process frustrates the hell out of me (I'm not very patient), and sometimes procrastination adds to the stress, but it's always rewarding to see the final product.
At my age, I really need to hone in on the one (or two) things that I do best. Being the "Jack of All Trades" is fine, but I should at least be the master of one, right?
