I woke up today already stressing about my to-do list. It’s one of those days where I just have so much on my plate and nearly all of it MUST be done today. I made a list, checked it twice and sure enough, I’ve got to dive in and get this stuff taken care of. My stomach hurts, my jaw is clenched, I’m steeling myself for the onslaught that’s facing me. But wait….this is a terrible way to start the day!
So I’m turning this morning around. This morning I GET to mail off two pretty packages to buyers. I GET to run to the store to pick up laundry detergent and other essentials. I GET to do PR for some upcoming gigs. I GET to find the funds and pay my too-high health insurance bill. I GET to run to the library to renew my books. I GET to find/create more items, photograph and post them for sale. I GET to clean up the mess the cat made overnight. I GET to….yes, I GET to!
I saw a notice that a high school classmate passed away a couple of days ago after suffering years of struggle with a debilitating disease. A family member is coping with medical issues that is robbing her of very basic abilities that the rest of us take for granted every day. Cancer has taken too many people that I love. These people can no longer do the things on their to-do list….but I GET to!
