Plates

Monday, November 08, 2010

Some days are like juggling plates, every now and then you are going to break one. Today was a I cannot seem to finish anything type of day. Oh, the good intensions were there, things just did not seem to click. Ever had one of those days?

I am looking forward to bed so this day will end. I am shamed to request unwanted time. Seems my perspective is out of whack, when I sit quietly for a moment or two to think about the accomplishments. I was able to get the kids off to school and then go to the gym for a couple of hours. I managed to make the elliptical hum at 13 of 25 for 60 minutes burning 1079 kcals in the process. I worked core for 50 minutes and jogged for 20 more. I did read the CFR requirements for reporting and participating in the renewable fuel program (YAWN x 10). I made contact with a colleague from several years ago which brightened my day. And, everybody is home safe and hopefully cleaned in the next few moments.

I still feel a few plates hit the floor. I exceeded my calorie allotment with nuts and milk. I did not finish a proposal I was trying to submit before the close of business today. I seem to be wandering through this day without really accomplishing any material gains (okay three loads of laundry).

Some days are like that I guess. Perhaps my body is still adjusting to the time zone change. I know my animals haven’t figured it out, so why should I expect my body to be any different.

Well, tomorrow is another day! I shall grab hold with both hands and ride it past the sunset! I shall make the most of it, for time is always in short supply. Find time to make time. Hush and listen to yourself. Quiet your mind to hear the voices within. Above all, be at peace.

    I know that this won't make anything any easier, but it is nice know that I am not alone with these feelings of 'What exactly did I or did I not get done today'. Most days my list seems to get longer and longer of things that HAVE TO GET DONE, even though I am busy doing these tasks from the time I get up until the time I crash in to bed. Today is no exception, I could give you my list but I am sure that t would be like yours. Thanks for being out there on SparkPeople and posting blogs like these.

    Look at your accomplishments - you did well. We can't always get eveything done in one day - Keep on keeping on! emoticon

    You did get a lot done, but I know how it feels--sometimes we just can't get everything we intended done. The time change does not help; hope today goes better for you!

    WOW - don't sell yourself short, you accomplished a lot in your day. Maybe you just ask too much of yourself some days. Like many others, I KNOW I do not use my time as wisely as I should when I am home, but at work I bust butt for 12 hrs and on my time off I just don't have that push. I have a 3rd load of laundry ready to go on the line and plan to take a long walk later today and hope to start on 2 Christmas projects. That may be all I accomplish but it will be ok. Enjoy each day and always find time for YOU and your Family. That is what is really important in this life. God bless. emoticon emoticon

    It seems like you have accomplished a lot for one day! Tomorrow you can juggle the other plates. Even the best jugglers can only keep so many plates in the air. emoticon
