I make lists for everything. To-do lists at work, to-do lists at home, lists of projects to accomplish and spaces to be cleaned, grocery lists, lists of upcoming expenses, etc. The list of lists goes on and on and on. Not surprising, eh?
Sometimes all these lists tend to run my life or at least my mind. They become a nagging reminder of all the things I just don’t have time to accomplish in a day’s time. This usually leaves me feeling like I’m constantly behind and will never get “caught up.” Do we ever really get “caught up,” though? Why must I choose to make so many lists? Maybe I just like the sensation of crossing items off the list when they’ve been completed…
Perhaps the lists are creating a false sense of urgency for less important things in my life. Or it could be the lists are adding unnecessary stress to my life where no stress is needed.
So, you know what? Sometimes you just have to say, screw it! Forget the lists and just relax!
Laughs and Love,
