Do you list your accomplishments or write a To Do List crossing off items to see what you have achieved in any given day?
Are you making lists on what you are grateful for?
Simply put, are you a list kind of person?
My questions come from mulling over wasting my days away. I can do plenty more in my day, i can achieve more, give more, explore more and learn more. The new year brings a fresh start to think about the year ahead and the direction in which i wish my life to head.
I am so reactive in life but this is something i want to work on personally because i want to be proactive in life. Seeking out new things to add to my experience of life. Nothing extreme just simple things like making time for gardening.
Today it felt very fulfilling to watch my children counting how many tomatoes we had picked from our garden while my hands were wrist deep in sopping mud. It was glorious. To me this is an accomplishment or two. Spending time with my family and getting some gardening done, achieved . If i wrote this down, listed it, i could refer back and see my life is full of accomplishments and if they are few and far between then it is a great tool to nudge me to go after some more.
I'm not the type of person that commits long term to things, i either get bored or i find something else a bit more exciting. For now though i think listing is something that i need to do to keep me thankful, grateful and accomplished.
What about you?
