I'm glad I made this mug with
my younger son when he was a toddler!
(A repost from the past - something I still want to think about).
I start my day with coffee. And with thinking. Sometimes I write my thoughts and prayers in a journal. Today as I was creeping down the stairs trying not to wake the dog or the kids I was a bit mad at myself. Usually I make coffee the night before, and I hadn't done it. That made me think of other things I hadn't done. So I was mentally making a list of all I hadn't done and wish I had. This is dumb.
But I might be wrong. Maybe making a list of what I wish I'd done in my yesterdays can inform today's to-do list. Do I wish I had exercised yesterday? Yes. Will I wish I had tomorrow? Yes. Shouldn't that be on today's list? Yes. That way I can turn regrets into something positive. Pssst! It's called learning, Dixie. There are other things on the list that are as important. Maybe my list should be called "What I Will Be Glad I Have Done." And then do it.
