I’m not sure who decreed that there shall only be twenty-four hours in a day, but at the moment I need to have a serious talk with that person. I mean…there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done. Housework. Cooking. Shopping. Errands. Pre-school field trips. Playground adventures. Writing. Lessons to teach. Reading. Family stuff. Friends. Etc… Etc… Etc…
This week I’ve felt the lack of time more keenly than any other. With one set of type set pages needing to be proofed and two other manuscript needing copyedited along with lots of writing to be done, blogs to write, a tot to race after, a holiday to shop for and enjoy family during…..there just isn’t enough time in the day.
What’s a girl to do?
During weeks like these I find myself wishing that I was addicted to chocolate. Instead, I find that I keep reminding myself to breathe. In. Out. This is where my singing training comes in handy. If there is one thing I am good at it is deep breathing. Then I instruct myself to remember that I can only do one thing at a time. Like many of the Stilettos, I have taken to making lists and I am telling myself that if I cross one thing off the list in a day the day is a success.
So today, I mail back the copy edits to THE TESTING. I will cross that item off my list and call today a success.
How about you? What item on your list have you or are you planning on crossing off today? Let’s celebrate these victories together!
