Yay! Saturday! First task of the day: Be lazy as hell and sleep past sunrise.
So I don’t need to tell ya that I was up at sunrise, right? So much to do and only so many hours in the day to do it.
It wasn’t until the end of the day that a dear friend of mine stated the absolute obvious in a way that I was finally willing to accept: “You have very high expectations of yourself, and you set very tight schedules as well. You need to save some kindness and understanding for yourself, you know.”
This came after hearing me whine about wanting to have so much done for the day and having so little to show for it despite all of my [heroic] efforts. He effectively said what the time-management seal has been pointing out.
I’m not putting myself first in my life.
The day almost ended in tears as I felt I was missing something very important. I actually pulled out the mini-book, traced the time-management seal, and asked [no one in particular] what was I forgetting to do. I was immediately reminded of the special task that could only be accomplished on a Saturday. I put the mini-book away, pulled out the tools for that task, and completed in twenty minutes what I had been anxious about all week.
I’ll make sure to place “Being lazy” higher up the priority list tomorrow. ;p
