Me thinks My Lists have Lists!

Compliments of Zen to Zany – look for her on

As I sit here contemplating another day. You know, preparing to write a list of things I need to accomplish. I realize, that right beside me, intertwined through out a stack of unopened bills, is a variety of “to do” lists. It is an ever growing pile. Each list is getting longer as I realize more things  need my attention. I have gotten to the point that these lists I create are beginning to overwhelm. Going through the stack of bills, I grab each list and tear each  into tiny little pieces and toss them in the garbage. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!  I AM FREE!

As I think over the last few months, I realize that my impending lists have not only stressed me out each day, but made me tired just thinking about them. Hence, the shoving them into the, “I will get to it pile”. Obviously, they are NOT “me” friendly!

Today is a new day. I hereby decide from this day forward the only list I will make is that of things I have done! As an added pat on the back, bonus, yahoo me!  said list will be created as I finish each task!  At the end of the day, instead of  being left with a list of things “yet” to do, I will have a list of  accomplishments!

No more negativity in the form of a list! Today, I have discovered one more positive solution!

What  change are YOU making today to move away from negativity?

  1. Hi! I have nominated you for the Liebstar Award. It is a way of promoting new bloggers. You can check out my latest post for more details. Eager to read your answers. Have a nice day!


    1. Actually, you had to publish a post based on the Award on your blog rather than commenting on the post itself. I’ve included a picture along with the post which tells exactly what you have to do.


  2. I Loved this post!! What a great idea listing only what you have accomplished 🙂 I also need this approach!!! Wishing you much success for a long list, positive day with many happy experiences!
