Today is my first official day of summer vacation. I imagine that most people get excited about the freedom summer brings, the lack of an alarm clock and schedule. The time to relax and just do nothing. Not me. What I want to do this morning is grab some paper and a pen and create a list; A list of projects to do, plans to make, items to purchase, books to read, posts to write, places to visit. You get the picture. A long list. A list that will make me feel productive all summer long. A list that will guide me through the weeks ahead. A list that will make me feel in control of my time. A list with items I can cross off as I go, and add to as I think of new things that need doing.
But….I’m not going to do it. Nope. Not this week. I’m going to try something new. I’m going to try (It won’t be easy.) to live in the moment, to go with the flow. I’m going to try to see where the days will take me. To be honest, I’m worried about trying this. It feels like I will be floating in space, and I like to be tethered to something. I like to get things done, and that might not happen if I don’t have a plan. But….I’m going to give it a try.
OK. I’ve finished my writing. I don’t have a list, so I can’t cross that off. Now I don’t know what to do. I guess I’ll just see where the day takes me.
If you don’t see a post from me next week, I guess you’ll know that I’m enjoying summer without a list!
