Since another school year is about to begin, I thought it might be a good idea to get organized. First I’ll write a “to do list.” I used to be really good at that until the “to do list” became too overwhelming. So I started making mental notes instead. When you reach your 70s, it’s not a good idea to rely on memory, so I’m thinking about revisiting the list idea. OK, here’s my list:
- Get out of bed, put my teeth in and brush the few I have left.
- Don’t look in the mirror until you can bear the reflection.
- Write devotion for the day.
- Get dressed.
- Think of all the things I have to do today.
- Go back to bed.
Albert Einstein once said, “Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” I guess you could say I’m waiting for my opportunity.
