I often find myself creating list, ticking things off list, creating new lists and the circle continues. Take today for instance I started my day with 3 things that needed to be taken care of and I got them done in pretty good time.
And it seemed as soon as I had ticked off my last item my next thought was already adding items that I could also get done today.
However I caught myself and asked myself why do you do that? Constantly going and doing and never stopping to pause, why not take a break before starting again. Why not take a beat to appreciate what you have already done.
There will always be stuff to get done, checklists to complete but it is up to us when we choose to stop, to breathe, to pause.
