~3 Must Do’s~

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!

  1. When I was working I always had a check list with things that kept me busy until often 10 at night. I love this post because recently I started writing down a list of goals for every day again after many years of letting this necessary task go. You just reminded me of all the reasons I gave it up and I am going to do so again. Thank you for this, so true in so many ways. Have an amazing Easter with your family. Belladonna what a beautiful name for a beautiful woman. Love Joni

    1. You are so sweet and I’m honored!!
      Thank you for your kind words. Please let me know how things are going and if you feel better without your list weighing you down.

      1. Yes actually I do feel better getting rid of this list. I Feel like now that I should do something in the mornings for try to get two things done in a day. I do them in the best order and that is it. If I get more tasks done than I pack myself on my back. If I don’t it is because something else came up that I felt was a priority. No more list for me. Thank you Belladonna. How an amazing and blessed week. Love and hugs, Joni

      2. Yea!!! It is impossible to get too many pats on the back. Thank you and you be blessed and have an amazing week as well. Thank you my friend. Love Joni xoxoxo
