If you need a bit of an uplift, it’s a nice feeling to check off the things that you get accomplished during the day.
This morning Mom and I had errands to run, so we:
- Went to the post office so that Mom could ship something she’d sold on eBay. I had some things that I normally would have put on the mailbox, but thought that since Mom was going to the post office I would just take them along and stick them into the slot in the post office lobby.
- After the post office, we headed to Michael’s craft store. Mom needed some embroidery floss for smocking on her doll clothes. When I heard before we left that Michael’s was one of the places that Mom wanted to go, I grabbed one of the skeins of embroidery floss that I noticed I was running out of last night, as the card the skein was on had the floss’s number on it, and I could pick another up while Mom and I were at Michael’s. I didn’t want to run out of it while I was still working on the bookmark that I’m currently making.
- When we were done at Michael’s, Mom took me to church so that I could drop off a check. A man had emailed one of the church men asking for help in getting Bibles for some new Christians, so I helped in the way that I could.
After that stop, we came home. Now I plan on writing until lunch, doing Bible study after lunch, and doing some more writing. 🙂
Many times I have written a physical list and checked things off as I did them. While I wasn’t able to do that today, it’s still a nice feeling to look at my list on line or in my head and “check off” the things I’ve gotten accomplished. 🙂
If you don’t think you’ve accomplished much during the day, take a moment and go though what you’ve done since you woke up. You may very well be pleasantly surprised ! 🙂
