Iâ€™m having a do-over day.
For the last two weeks, my husband has been busy with work and hasnâ€™t been around very much.Â Iâ€™ve pushed myself to get everything done, even without the added help.Â After two weeks, Iâ€™m beginning to see just how much I need my husband around.Â If for no other reason than I can have a little peace while I take my bath.
This morning I woke up with so many back dated things on my to-do list that I just decided to throw it away and start over.Â Iâ€™m giving myself a do-over (remember when you messed up in elementary school playing a game and you got a chance to do it again).Â I refuse to feel guilty for the list that is screaming at me from the garbage.Â Instead, I choose to focus on all the all the things that I will accomplish today â€“ since Iâ€™m free of the burden of yesterday.
I think thatâ€™s kind of what Paul was saying to us when he said not to look back.Â It seems to me that the more I focus on what I didnâ€™t do yesterday the less I manage to do today.
Iâ€™ll be back on my schedule starting first thing tomorrow morning.Â Today, Iâ€™m doing the things that I need, want, and desire to do and just not worrying about the rest of it.Â Who knows, the kids and I may just have a picnic for lunch and a hotdog roast for dinner so that I donâ€™t have to worry about the condition of the kitchen.
To paraphrase a famous philosopher (for kids at least), â€œtoday will be a glorious day.â€
