This list making was pretty necessary when I had a full-time job. I have a calendar, but the calendar gets a little crowded when you schedule the mundane things like - clean toilets - Wednesday - 8:14 a.m. The calendar is saved for things like: Gen - Bus Stop -Monday and Tuesday, 2:15 p.m.; Church supper - Sunday, 6:00 p.m.; VW Woman's Club - Thursday, 7:00 p.m.; Kids & grandkids over - Saturday, 5:00 p.m.; and TV.. American Pickers - Monday, 9:00 p.m. (can't miss that show). Now back to the list - finish chapter 4 in my book looks more like f
So, I'm finding the time to do the necessary things and ignoring the others? What does this mean? I have always been busy, busy, busy - even if I am just spinning my wheels which I often do. For the first time in my life, I think I am finally realizing that rarely does a person accomplish everything he sets out to do in life and I'm accepting that I may not finish my book until I'm 75, I may never clean out my attic (who's going to know anyway). Does this mean that I'm totally giving up on those things? No, it just means that from now on I'll be setting more realistic goals. I'll continue doing the important things as highlighted above. Maybe I'll stop stressing when I have to mark things off my list. Heck, I may not even make a list anymore. Ahhh....maybe this means that I'm finally realizing the meaning of retirement.
