Last week I stayed up late too many nights. I should’ve caught up on my sleep over the weekend but there was too much to do and for some reason I added cleaning behind the fridge to the list .
Anyway, now it’s a new week and I’m thinking about all the things I’m trying to get done.
This of course got me thinking you probably have a lot of things you need to do too.
If your To-Do List sends you into a panic (like Sheldon when he realizes Amy wants to have coitus ),
here’s an idea – call your To-Do List your “GET-To-Do” List. I read about this in Susie Moore’s book Let it be Easy.
Here’s my list for today:
- I get to run to the UPS store to return leopard print booties that didn’t fit (and also leopard print? I don’t wear animal prints) (REFUND – cha ching)
- I get to go to Crossfit at noon because I have a flexible work schedule
- I get to make chalupas, heavy on the guacamole, for dinner (two wins–having a son and fiancé who enjoy my cooking and yeah, yummy for me too)
- I get to write this article to share with you
- I get to clean behind the fridge (ohhh, you caught me, I already did that … just checkin’ to see if you’re paying attention).
See how it feels different when you write your GET To-Do List?
The list hasn’t changed. You’re just “tapping in to the appreciation filter”.
Here’s another idea for changing what you think and how you feel. Check out my pdf resource – First -Aid for your Broken Heart. You’ll learn how to take control of your thoughts and create space for joy and healing. When you put this into practice, you’ll find small changes in what you’re thinking can make a big difference in how you’re feeling.
