My Trip Around the Sun: Day 13

Today's Quote:
For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.~Lily Tomlin

This quote says a lot about the day I've had...there was a 'to do' list a mile long and I crossed off only a couple of things. To say I put 'slow' in my day is an understatement.

Slow feels good sometimes, though, and it feels especially good that the 'couple of things' I managed to cross off my list had been there for a while and it was frustrating that I couldn't get to them.

One thing that took its toll on my 'to do' list was the need to spend a couple of hours at my office...on a day when I wasn't supposed to be there at all. There was some mail that absolutely had to get to the post office and notices that needed to make the newspaper's publication deadline. Of course, once I got to the office people kept popping in to ask me to do things for them. Serves me right for going in...but then, again, I had responsibilities and they had to be met.

The lesson to be learned from today is to not be concerned about getting a whole list of errands and chores crossed off. Just do what really needs to be done and handle your responsibilities the best you can. The rest will take care of itself.
