In a private Facebook group the Administrator brought up about working on something on your “Wanna-Do” pile instead of your “To-Do” pile today. That got me thinking. My Wanna-Do list is the first list I tackle each day. I have the luxury of being self-employed and therefore I can work around my daily tasks.
I have lost 2 sons, a sister and many others in my life. I lost all my house and 99% of my “stuff” in Hurricane Sandy (I am grateful we lost no people). I have learned the hard way that tomorrow isn’t promised.
I’ve had times in my life where I was seriously depressed and agoraphobic and have had serious health issues.
I take each day as a new slate to create a new reality and do what I “wanna-do” that will make memories for me and my family (I have a daughter and grandson.) I encourage my daughter to do things she can’t really afford because tomorrow isn’t promised. Do what you are driven to do and not what you “have” to do.
I’m not self-indulgent or hurt others. I make enough time for the “have to-do” but I make sure I do the “wanna-do” every day.
Today I have a long to-do list, as I do every day. When you are self employed the to-do list never goes away. But today I will take my camera and go for a long walk. Because daylight hours are for fun in my world and the dark hours are when you “work”.
Unless you are outside gazing at the stars.
