This was turning out to be the longest ever To Do list that I had ever written. It was daunting. It was so daunting that I simply couldn't believe it. And it was self-perpetuating. Every time I looked at one item, something else popped into my head and another line was added. I couldn't put the list down, it was growing and growing before my very eyes...
I groaned at the sheer immensity of the list. How could I ever get to the end of this?
A good friend of mine posted on Facebook that I should "take them one at a time. It will seem easier". I smiled at that - however, would I be able to cope?
I smiled, and added one item to the top of the list. A must for each and every day.
