The Blank Page Results

Yesterday was the day of openness (at least in my schedule). I got to design it as I moved through it. At first, it appeared that I let much of it dwindle away as I used the first few hours rather liesurely (not that there is anything wrong with that). By 10:30 a.m. I was ready to get to work....or rather play. After making a quick list in categories of my life/work that need attention, I rather quickly took care of many things that can collectively seem overwhelming. Could it be that because I was not in a stressed and frantic mood, moving down this list seemed easy?

I jumped about the list, always choosing what I wanted to do in that moment. I was in choice all day. There was a balance of creativity, number crunching, phone calls, physical tasks and errands. By the end of the day, almost all of the items were crossed off. I felt complete and grateful for all that I had accomplished. The really good news is there was not an ounce of stress in it all.

Looks like a stretching place for me is bringing that same balance and ease even when the page of my appointment book is filled in completely.
