I know that workdays are designed to be productive. And I fully planned to be productive, as my to-do list readily attests. I have report cards to finish, planning to do, organizing and cleaning calling my name, and people to meet with for a variety of reasons. But somehow, my list always seems to be longer than the day.
Isn’t that true in life? I always think I’m going to get more done than I’m able to complete. The hardest thing for me is dealing with that reality in a positive way rather than feeling defeated. So, with that in mind, I’m going to use today as best as I can and know that the rest of my list will get done eventually.
Just maybe not today.
Oh, and the highlight of the day? The amazing sunshine that beckons me outdoors. Maybe I’ll have to take my grading outside for a while…
