Aren't we supposed to improve as we do things?
What about the following quote?
How are we supposed to feel good about ourselves if we cannot seem to make meaningful, noteworthy progress in all aspects of our humanity?
Why do I constantly find myself wondering if I am spending my time in the BEST activities? Or creating an endless list of 'Things To Do' which can never fully be finished, only to question items on that list when reviewing it later? (Ehh, it's not that important to get the oil changed today. I'll get around to reading that book eventually. We had a date night last week ... that's good enough, right?!)
Perhaps the answer is echoed in the adage: Those who can't, teach.
Maybe I'm not meant to ever feel good about prioritizing things, but through my example (good or bad) others can learn how to better prioritize for themselves.
Song Of The Day:
With a chorus that include the phrase "Even as we stumble through the darkness and the light - you know these were the best years of our lives." OMD's melancholy love song "Best Years Of Our Lives" feels somehow appropriate for this post. When I stress about priorities, I always end up calming down by reminding myself that these are some of the BEST years of my life. It is natural to wonder whether we're doing the best we can and this song helps me reflect on the choices I am making now, hopefully helping me make even better choices going forward.
