I promised my sister garden photos...I did not do that last night-by the time I got home, changed, glanced at the mail, returned a phone call, number crunched something that had to be done yesterday with a follow up call on the results-watered and took out the trash-well, it was too dark to take photos! yeah, that's my story and I am sticking to it. Each day as I drive home from work, I look at my "to do" list and make a choice of what I will tackle when I pull into the driveway. Of course all that can change with a phone call or a suggestion from my sweetie. However, this morning I chose to stitch binding instead of going to the gym. I got all the way around to the part where I want to put the label. Now, that is a perfect stopping point for the morning. I can play around with word ideas for the label during breaks at work. If I remember to take any of course. I tend to rather get engrossed and before I know it-the day is gone. Yesterday I had a dentist appointment and then fit in a visit to our local ups store-sending off two packages -check that off the "to do" list-yes!...arriving at work later than norm. Thus, my day ran longer-and we all know that shift of everything running later as a result of that choice.
I am choosing to post rather than get to work a bit earlier-I already did the prep for a big meeting this morning-and I will still have time to pull it out and give it a once over prior anyway.
I think a lot about the freedom I have of making choices-and accepting that I chose to do one thing over another-and NOT do other things...and really I feel pretty happy with most of my choices, most of the time. Of course I wish there were more hours in the day-but that is beyond my ability to chose - rather I aim for feeling good about what I have done in those hours by the end of the day. What are you going to chose to do with your day? whatever choices you make-I hope you enjoy them!
