Day 3 of 100 Days of Good Karma.
I didn’t get my To Do list done today.
I know, who cares, right?
I care a lot.
It seems like there’s very little I can control right now. That lack of control is hard to accept. Being able to cross things off of my To Do list makes me feel better. Like I managed to do something.
I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke up at 1:30am after a bad dream about falling over the edge of a cliff. I don’t need Freud to explain the meaning of that one to me. I got back to sleep around 3:30am, but it wasn’t a good sleep.
Being tired today was a double edged sword. It made me both overly emotional and my To Do list overly ambitious.
I was frustrated by the end of the day because nothing seemed to fall into line. I finally declared the day a loss when I found a load of wet clothes in the dryer. From yesterday.
If there’s anything I hate more than not finishing something it’s inefficiency.
I gave up, poured a glass of wine and sat down on the couch to watch Teen Beach Movie with my daughter. It was the smartest thing I did all day.
Today’s silver lining: accepting that some days are going to be better than others.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments.
