I choose Today!
It seems like the older we get the harder it becomes to put down our list and stop checking things off. Somedays we need to determine what we are going to do when it arrives. I think that’s what I’m going to start doing because I am sick of my daily checklist.
Okay, maybe I won’t get rid of my checklist altogether, but I refuse to rely on it heavily. For instance, if I decide to do something and it’s not on my list, I will pencil it in for tomorrow. And now that I’m actually sharing this, it sounds bizarre. Maybe I should delete this. I don’t want anyone to think I’m a wacko.
Oh hell! Why not think it, because I kind of am. And I embrace that.
But in all seriousness, when we rely on a specific daily game plan, we are thrown for a loop when the unexpected happens. We become paralyzed and unclear on which path we should take in hopes of solving our problem. Or better yet, how many blessings have we missed because of being focused on a list and being too afraid to maneuver past it.
Case in point, I often hear my husband giving my son advice about football. He tells him that he has to be prepared to switch up his game. When my son is on the Defensive Line and has his eyes on the quarterback, he has to stay loose, stop overthinking, stay low and shake the Offensive line.
That advice applies to a vast majority of life
- Overthinking can cause you to talk yourself out a good idea
- Not being loose will make every blessing look like a curse from God. Keep your mind opened and stop being so uptight.
- When you stay low or lay low, you can avoid all the nonsense and foolishness that’s looking to come your way. And remain prepared to attack in your direction of choice.
I’m not going to allow my checklist to rule me anymore. If I so choose to be impromptu, then I will do just that. I’m freeing myself from my bubble, busting a spin move, and grabbing everything that was meant for me!
You could have chosen any blog to read but you chose mine and I’m honored!
