I have no time to write this!

But I’m going to write it anyway.

Have you ever had so much to do that you just don’t know where to start? This has been the state of my life for what seems like months. The ‘to do’ pile never gets smaller. It has become so stressful that lately I have given up trying to conquer it.

Then today it occurred to me that giving up was exactly what I needed to do. I finally put the entire pile into perspective and realized that every individual ‘to do’ was actually not worth the stress. Not one job was urgent, high priority or life threatening.  I sorted the ‘must do’s’ from the ‘to do’s’ and found that I had a total of two jobs for the day.

Okay – so  we will be having an easy dinner tonight, and the floors may not get done – but is it worth stressing over ? – I just don’t think so.

So my advice for today – ABANDON THE PILE and enjoy life. Have that coffee break, make that call to a friend, and take time to smell the roses, because today is about today.
