Today was about getting things checked off my to-do list. I had an epiphany on my drive home from class yesterday. I was starting to get a little bit mopey and whiny about how much I have to do these days. I mean, I am literally onthegogogo from sunup to sundown. But I didn't like my attitude. It needed an adjustment. So, right there in the car, I decided I was just going to go ahead and be happy. I gave myself permission to be joyful and enjoy what I am doing. Why can't I be busy and jubilant at the same time? Why can't I be super grateful while I am sitting in class or doing tons of homework? Why can't I dance in the car, while I'm driving myself and everyone to everywhere we need to go? Why can't I laugh it off when dinner doesn't get served until 7:30pm? Why can't I just put down my task list and watch a movie, cuddled up with my kids?
Ya know, I don't have a good answer for any of those questions. Because the answer is that I can do all of those things. And since yesterday's attitude adjustment, I have been doing those things. Today, I have so much more energy and was able to accomplish so much. Most importantly, I was able to remain calm and sane and feel the awesomeness that comes along with accomplishing things. Tonight the kids and I are going to make dinner and watch a movie together. And I'm going to let myself relax and enjoy. :)
You should too.
