Focus Pocus…

Spring Break starts today…and instead of having tons of time on my hands…I find my schedule more tightly packed than during my work week…once again…my eyes were bigger than my stomach…so to speak

So…I’m fretting…not full-blown worry…no anxiety…or anything like that…just a bit of fretting…how will I fit it all in…how will it work out…blah…blah…blah…

Thankfully…Bertha…popped in mid fret…to remind me…to focus on the task at hand…regardless of how long the to-do list is…I can only do this one thing in this moment…and…the more I focus…the more efficiently I will get it done…

And…she’s right…as I settle down…focusing on my writing for the moment…allowing the other thoughts to float on by…

Blog Worthy…

There’s a commercial on TV right now that I find amusing…a family is taking snapshots…does anyone use that term anymore…and each time they say that the picture is card worthy…or…not card worthy…obviously it’s for a company that prints photos…and wants to create a lot of photo Christmas cards…well…it is the season…

Anyway…as I was thinking about my weekend…perusing each event for some jewel of knowledge…some evidence that…Bertha…was alive and well during my Christmas shopping…and…self-proclaimed, rainy pajama day…I found myself discarding them…not blog worthy…not blog worthy…not even close to blog worthy…why did I even do that…not blog worthy…

Well…you get the idea…it was a fairly uneventful weekend…

My first thought was…

Hey…I had to have learned something

But…Bertha…reassured me…that even though she uses the mundane to teach me…everything doesn’t have to be a lesson…some things…are just things…just the purchase of stocking stuffers…just doing the laundry in my pajamas…nothing earth shattering…nothing profound…just days…

I find that comforting…as I realize…that once again…she has used the mundane…to teach me something…

The beauty of just being

And…that…my friends…is definitely…blog worthy
