Hang the Picture

Today I did something amazing; I hung a poster I got for Christmas up in my office. It was pretty awesome.
I know it may not seem like as great an accomplishment as I’m making it out to be, but all jokes aside, it was a pretty big deal to me.
This poster is a framed posted from IKEA that I’ve wanted for a while now. It’s decently heavy, so I had to put an anchor in the wall to help support the weight. The poster has sat leaning against the wall for the last week mostly out of fear.
What if I put the anchor in and hang the poster only to need to rearrange my office?!? So I would just wait. Wait till I was 100% sure I wouldn’t be moving anything around. Wait till I had my office setup perfectly, then I would confidently drill that anchor into the drywall and hang that poster. It may not be for three or four years, but it would be perfect.
Then I stopped. I realized it would never be perfect. I had to evaluate what was holding me back from just hanging the damn poster.
I told myself even if I had to move the poster later I would just need to fill the hole I was about to make. I mean it’s not the most convenient thing in the world, but was it worth me never actually hanging this poster I’d wanted for so long?
So I did it. I hung that poster real good. And I love it!! My office looks awesome. And if I end up moving it, it’s ok. I can just patch the hole and move on with my life. I’m over a little patch work keeping me from taking chances.
