I am finding myself prone to all or nothing thinking lately, and I want to work on catching myself in the act and stopping it.
I’m either on top of everything, or life is an unmitigated disaster.
My kids are either COMPLETELY FINE, or tragically suffering and missing out on childhood.
I absolutely love my job, or OMG WHEN CAN I FIRE (realistic answer: not anytime soon!).
The pandemic era is a chance for rebirth and change and wow I am so lucky in life, or this is outright misery.
The truth lies in between. For all of these. Probably for everything. I didn’t want to get up with my alarm this morning and spent at least 15 minutes lying in bed (after snoozing) reading articles on my phone.
This does not mean ‘the day is ruined’ or ‘I am a failure of a human person’, both thoughts which floated up into consciousness after the fact.
Today is a day off, though I have two meetings I have to attend (see? Even a “work day” or “day off” isn’t all or nothing). I will not use every minute perfectly, nor will it be a waste.
TO DO LIST:
❏ Library pickup (YAY!). (Note: I also received my order from Pyramid Books in the mail so I will be surrounded by great NON-SCREEN reading options! SO excited.)
❏ Create podcast calendar/tracking system and decide on official BLP launch date
❏ BB 80DO #53 (legs / phase 3). Note, there were only 68 spiderman pushups in yesterday’s workout — not 88. So I stand corrected. But that was plenty.
❏ make pile for tailor
❏ organize closet
❏ watch at least one BSC ep with Annabel
PLUS listen to pile of pending podcasts while doing some of the above tasks.
