I am a list maker.
Each day I write down all the things that need doing or that Iâ€™d like to do. If I didnâ€™t do something on the list, it gets transfer over to todayâ€™s list and I give great intentions to doing what ever I didnâ€™t do the day before.
Todayâ€™s list includes a few things that are perpetually on the list, because even if I do them, they need doing again.
These items include, but are not limited to
1. Call Sandie
2. Write Anna, Betty, send a birthday card to Susan.
3. Skype Allyson
4. Figure out what to do with stuff
5. Answer the emails that have been in my inbox for over a month
7. Read, write and post
Of course each day I add to the list depending on what is in front of me; pay bills, call the insurance people, buy eggs, blah, blah, blahâ€¦ These are the mundane, yet important things that my life is made up of. You would think I don’t need to write them down to get them accomplished â€” but I do.
Most things on my list are the same as yesterday, three months ago and even last year.
I suppose I use a list to remind me to participate in my life.
