My To-Do list was getting quite long, but instead of doing the things so I could cross them off, I kept coming up with all kinds of excuses for not completing them. It was too early in the day, or too late, or I didn't have enough time, or the places I needed to go were closed for the day. The more I thought about not doing these things, the worse I felt about it. However, this morning I decided to take action. Today I:
Replaced an old shower head with a new one
Listed some things on Craigslist (and made arrangements to get rid of one of them)
Sent an e-mail to a friend asking her for a favor
Consolidated two piles of donations (including a box that had been sitting on the kitchen floor for several days) and dropped it off at Goodwill
Dropped off some volunteer paperwork that I'd been carrying in the car since Monday
Once I got going, all the tasks were easy (even the ones I'd put off because I though they were going to be difficult). It felt SO good to be able to get these things finished!
