Life is what happens while we’re busy making other plans. – John Lennon
We’ve all been there.
Plans are made.
Everything is set.
Ready to get IT done.
And then Life happens.
And The Plan goes South – WAY South.
And if you’re like me, you might get pretty bummed.
This happened to me on Saturday. I was all set to get my taxes done. My receipts, statements, balance sheets, etc. were all organized – except for that ONE file I KNEW was on my hard drive.
I spent two straight hours searching. No luck. Then I spent two more hours being mega-frustrated that I couldn’t find it. And one more hour sulking.
Bless her heart.
She brought me back from the brink (No, this isn’t her in the picture. I wasn’t thinking too clearly when It Happened.).
So I joined her and shook it off, too.
It was the first beautiful day we’d had in ages. So we went for a walk. We spotted the first gator of the season. We got excited. And we forgot about taxes. Well, I did – she was never really concerned about them.
I’m going to remember that shaking it off image next I let myself get hooked by something like taxes. I’m going to breathe, stretch, shake it off, do something nourishing and go back to The Plan when my brain and spirit are fresh.
Note – the taxes still aren’t finished. I HAVE found THAT file (it was the first placed I looked- duh…). So I’ll pull it all together – on a day the sun is not calling me.
How do you shake off those little things that hook you?
