Today, I felt frustrated because I just can’t seem to catch up with life. There is a constant struggle between the things that I want to accomplish for me personally and other responsibilities that always seem to win out in the priority battle.
There are times where I just want to life to neaten up and get organized so that I can do some of my want to’s, instead of focusing on all the have to’s.
And then I remember, life is never neat and organized. It’s always messy, unexpected and uncontrollable…it’s what makes life amazing.
Well, the medicine I required to bring me back into alignment was to complete something that I wanted to do and has been bugging me for a while. For me today, it was a pile of confidential paperwork that needed to be burned, and let’s face it, there’s no denying the therapy of an outdoor fire.
Finding myself with a pocket of time while DS cooked dinner, I took advantage and built myself a fire. At first, it was more smoke than flame. A really great fire requires patience which I didn’t have and reaped the consequences of my impatience…a face full of smoke. I then revamped the fire properly, burnt my paperwork and reveled in being outside in the sun getting something I wanted to get done completed.
Sometimes, I have to remember when it feels like I don’t have time to get anything done just narrowing the list to one item and giving it priority creates better attitude for all the other responsibilities in my day and the days following.
