I like to make lists – dont you? Big or small, notebooks, post-it’s, mini journals, on my phone note app, whatever you choose to write on. It makes me feel efficient. I start out the day so optimistic. Today my list took up two pages. Hmmmm that could be an issue. This photo above was shot at 6:30 am. It’s now 2:40 as I begin to write and only half of the list is done. I’m getting tired, its Friday and ugggggg they are calling for rain so that means no car wash (whew) Besides I could really use a nap. Naps are just the best!
So I’m rethinking my moring list practice and figure I will to go back to my old ways of making my lists. I need to start by writing a weekly if not a monthly list than a realistic daily list. I like to win big or small things and each little check mark is its own little victory. Is that weird of me?
As I said I got more than 1/2 done. So not to bad and as usual the important one checked off first. I met Amanda and ordered new uniform samples for TR http://www.trrestaurant.com and decided on a light fixture film to address the horrible LED light situaition over the bar. (Thanks Amanda for holding them up for me to get a better view).We got our new patio table put together, (when I say we I mean I supervised as Mike did it) I did some photo editing, (so need new external hard drive now Best Buy on list for tomorrow) kitchen cabinets are clean etc…. but now I need to quiet my mind. Some days start out great and then a certain something just swoops in and suddenly your whole mood and day are on a different path. The wind knocked outta your sails. Today thats jsut what happened to me. None of it in my control but affected me greatly just the same. So my list while not complete will have to carry over till Monday. I will get the bike ride in however that’s my “zone out” space.I try not to beat myself up too much – I have done that a lot in the past. Like I felt the need to look just so, act just right, house clean at a moment’s notice, relationships all working good or I get in my head – like I failed or what’s wrong with me or what did I do wrong. Thank goodness that negative mind chatter has become less and less so to I am deciding while writing this post that today is done – work wise and a nap is fully approved! You should take one too!
Enjoy your weekend everyone – make your lists but remember first and foremost on the very top it should read “self-love and acceptance” Look for my next post review on the Quirk Hotel Richmond, VA
