Push

My husband and I had an appointment with our CPA to have our taxes prepared this afternoon.  Although we own a business, I am employed full time as a teacher.  I hold a service position to a group of which I am a member.  I also am undergoing chiropractic treatment for spinal subluxation a couple of evenings a week.  Additionally, I am assisting with a seminar and a summer camp (both require weekly meetings, daily tasks which must be completed, weekday phone calls, and weekend social media postings). 

Tonight I bowed out of a meeting, cancelled an appointment with my chiropractor, and ordered pizza rather than cooking dinner.  After having our taxes filed, we placed our pizza order, and I settled in to post grades in my online grade book.  At around 10:30, I had to get up and move to avoid falling asleep in front of the computer.  I folded some clothes, threw a load in the dryer, and started another load.  (I ate some frozen yogurt too.)  Then it dawned on me that I had not posted here yet today.  I made an agreement to do it every day until April11 and I want to keep my word to myself. 

Anyway, I say all that to say I push myself a lot.  Some people are critical of this.  They think I do too much.  This may or may not be true.  The truth is, I love to be busy.  I just have to step back once in awhile and reevaluate what I am doing.  And I am not willing to give up the things I Iove in order to fit the must-do’s into my schedule.  So I will continue to push.  I must if I want to have time for motorcycle riding, singing, crocheting that blanket for my soon-to-be granddaughter, writing this blog, working in my yard, exercising, reading, entertaining, going to that Bon Jovi concert Wednesday night with my hubby, Sunday afternoon lunches with the family, etc., etc., etc.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
