Today’s card isn’t a card. It’s one of my Zentangles. I’ve got so much to do today. I’ve got to go to the Vet (kitty with allergies). I’m having lunch with a friend. I’m meeting a new friend for tea. I’ve got a phone date with a friend later. I hope to also have a phone date with my honey.
Ever feel overwhelmed? Like you just can’t get it all done and there isn’t enough time for you? How do you manage those moments? What gets you through them?
For me, I remember that there is one thing in the world that I can pretty much always multitask.
I’m going to find joy at the vet knowing that my elderly boy will be back to his pushing, purring, pillow-hogging self once he gets his allergy shot.
I’ll find joy with my friend over good food and his silly dogs.
I love meeting new people.
I’ll get a chance to catch up with a loved one.
I might even get a chance for some pillow talk (albeit over Skype) with my honey.
I could wail and moan about all I have to do but really, I would still have to do it.
So, grin, I’ll just put on my Pollyanna hat with a firm clap to my head. I’ll scootch my rose-colored lenses up my nose. I’ll lighten my load by acknowledging all the joy coming my way today.
I hope you have a marvelous day. I love you. Each of you are worth love. Each of you deserve love. So remember, when you are wondering how you can get it all done….
Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
