My never-ending todo list…
□ donate the clothes I don’t wear
Its numerous items crawl into my head as I go to sleep and greet me first thing when I wake up.
□ clean the “junk” closet
There is an illusion, if only I can get the next big thing done, I will feel less restless.
□ finish the unfinished song
That there will be relief.
□ get together with a friend to talk about what’s going on because I know I can make a difference
That I will be able to focus on something more important.
□ figure out how I will contribute to saving the world
There will be a sense of completion or even maybe even accomplishment.
□ pay bills that fell through the cracks
That life will be lighter.
□ organize receipts
But it doesn’t work like that.
□ respond to long overdue emails
Today I am taking a day off. I won’t attempt to check-off any of these. Cheers to life without a todo list.
