I took last week off. I didn’t mean too and to be honest I don’t feel I’ve been working enough the last few weeks to “deserve” a vacation and by the looks of my to do list I sure as hell don’t deserve one BUT I took one anyways. I didn’t go anywhere glamorous but what I did do was unplug, watch a lot of Netflix, and think. I wanted to clear my head, recharge my batteries, and reset my focus for the rest of the year.
When I first woke up this morning I freaked out a little because my to do list had increased in size to an amount that I could imagine managing. Remember the Star Trek episode the Trouble with Tribbles where these cute little fuzzball things just multiplied and multiplied until they were out of control (I watched this with my dad growing up and while I wasn’t a fan I did like this episode as the darn things were cute). Then I realized it was silly to feel this way. I am always going to have a list and I must control the list rather than the list control me. So my focus was organization and making things manageable so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed and rather would be productive and feel accomplished. I would like to say I was successful today and even though it is almost 9:30pm and I am just writing this blog post that should have been posted hours ago I feel good about where I will start my day tomorrow. It reminds me that you can’t change the past but you can change tomorrow and make it what you want. So beware tomorrow…you’re going to be my bitch! How will you make it yours?
