There is just something about a long "to do" list that freezes me in my tracks, unable to perform said tasks. I have made several lists of things I need to do...but that was probably another effort to procrastinate. Blogging about procrastinating was not on that list either. I have listed them in order of priority (making aprons, frosting cookies and putting together the teacher gifts) all due before the weekend. Guess I should stop typing and change the baby...since she smells like a priority right now! Now that that's done...I wish I could just have a day to freeze time and accomplish all the things I need to get done and want to get done. Boy, I'm thinkin' Santa would be laughing his jolly head off about now!
I've been a relatively good girl this year...I've helped
friends, been kind to others, I've given money to those less fortunate.
I've really tried to do all I can. All I really want for Christmas is
a few minutes to do the things I don't ever have time for...
All this to say...NONE OF THESE THINGS THAT I HAVE TO DO ARE IMPORTANT! NONE OF THESE THINGS WILL CHANGE SOMEONE'S LIFE!
My "to do" list should read: 1. Spend time with my children (they are growing so fast) 2. Spend time with my husband (he's all I will have when the kids leave home, and if we don't have a good relationship now, there won't be one then). 3. Spend time with the people I love the most (my parents, my brother and Heather, friends and family) 4. Give of myself to those in need.
Here's a little video that I thought was appropriate to share.
No more procrastinating. Let's not use our time worrying about things that don't matter...let's use it to bless others.
