That’ll teach me to make promises I can’t necessarily keep! I loved the idea of Wonderful Wednesday but time ran away with me yesterday so here we are today instead. A lesson to be learned there about over-promising and under-delivering, when really it should of course be under-promising and over-delivering! What a mouthful!
I feel it’s in a similar vein to always rushing around unnecesarily because I want everything done right now and then I make myself stressed by making sure it all gets done now. When it totally doesn’t need to be achieved that instant. I’m just adding unnecessary pressure to my life and mental tranquility: doing things too quickly and therefore with probably less quality in a random quest to get them achieved by a self-imposed yet completely unessential deadline that I’ve made up in my head.
I was thinking to deliver a card order to a shop today, just because, and feeling a bit unrelaxed about it. Then I said to myself why not just do it tomorrow (radical! I hadn’t stated any particular date to the shop, so it really didn’t matter), and immediately felt more peaceful. Ahhhhh….suddenly I had time to do it properly and in a more leisurely fashion…Less is more, less is more….etc.
♥ Things I’m grateful for today ♥
