When a person itemizes the things on their check list, I tell them “slow down! Take time to enjoy life!” I feel that people who cannot be happy unless they are doing a million things are a little mental. Frankly, that’s “un burro hablando de orejas” as my family would say or the kettle calling the pot black in more understandable terms. I am one to add a few more things to my check list every time one leaves the list.
When I finished working on Celebrate Life Half Marathon, I started frantically working on the book, now that the book is done, I am trying to create another race knowing that soon I will have to start working on CL. The closest I come to relaxing is sipping some wine and having the laptop on my lap (if it’s a laptop it should be on my lap, shouldn’t it?) and either reading or writing something. If I take a walk in my property I lean constantly to remove weeds and then head home to get some garden snippers and of course, I must water the plants and maybe wash off the house façade and all of this in no order what’s so ever. I cannot do one thing at time. I must do them all.
Just know I turned my laptop off to purposely give myself some time to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, but then this post assaulted me and I had to write it so I turned the laptop back on. Of course, once I am up, I might as well throw some laundry in the washer and pick something to wear tomorrow. Maybe I can even clean the toilet.
