The Almighty List

We use lists for pretty much everything. The grocery list. The list of errands. The To-Do list. The various lists used when going on vacation – now that’s a big one, and there would likely be many things forgotten if we didn’t use that one!

Back to school list. Project lists. Honey Do list, aka known as the home repairs list. Christmas shopping list. The list for Santa!

The list of lists is endless. As long as there are things to be done, there will be lists.

My all time favourite time management tool is The List. There’s something about that feeling you get when you can tick an item off or cross it off. A sense of accomplishment. Continue reading “The Almighty List”

I Wish I Could….

What is something you want to do but doubt you can?

Think about it for a moment and come up with one thing, the one thing you want to do the most but you don’t think you have what it takes to do it.

Maybe it’s act in community theatre or teach a special interest class. Or maybe it’s run a marathon or maybe you want to build your own house. What’s something you really want to do?

Write it down.

Now write down all the reasons why you think you can’t do it. Nothing fancy, just a bulleted list of all the reasons why, written under that thing you want to do most.  Continue reading “I Wish I Could….”

Procrastination at its finest

I can’t stick with a schedule.

I love schedules! I love organization, in fact clutter and operating without direction or a plan just irks me! I love list making, I love crossing things off that list, I love planning, I love goal setting, all of those things! But sticking with a schedule? I fall off the organized people bandwagon time after time.

Why??

Does anyone else struggle with this? Continue reading “Procrastination at its finest”

I lost my way

I lost my way.

I took a detour that I thought was the right path, got caught up in the bright lights and whirlwind and then realized I was lost. I took the wrong turn. Or maybe it was the right turn at that point, but I stayed too long on that path.

After a long while I made my way back to the right path. Was it starting over? I don’t think so. Continue reading “I lost my way”

Your tribe

‘We can’t choose our family but we can choose our friends’. Isn’t that how the saying goes, or something close to that? I could argue that we can indeed choose our family, depending on how you want to define family, but that’s not the point of today’s post 😊 Rather, it’s about choosing our friends, our tribe.

Your life, your journey

How many of us live our lives unintentionally? Or we live our lives according to what society dictates. We conform to what our parents want for us, or to be like our friends. We model our lives after the ‘ideal’ even if it doesn’t make us happy. You know…following the career path that makes our life look good even though we force our way through each day, screaming on the inside but plastering a fake happy look on the outside.
