To Do List.
Lately I've realized lists can be somewhat of a downfall for me. I have this guilt problem when it comes to allowing myself to relax. I constantly feel like I need to be doing something, and have a hard time letting myself just enjoy life. When I have a day off of work and have no definite plans, I bust out my marker and scratch paper and start my list. I have the hardest time just going with the flow of day, seeing whatever it may bring.
I'm slowly learning how important it is to have a day to relax. To sit in your comfy clothes all day, and watch your favorite movie. Or to visit your favorite coffee shop and read a book. Too often I measure my self worth with how much I accomplish in a day. I need daily reminders that my self worth comes from my Creator, and nowhere else. Sure, lists are helpful, but I use them as an excuse to not relax and enjoy life. I'll always be a list maker, but I need to start making less of them when they are unnecessary.
I should start a recovery club. List makers anonymous, anyone?
