For a long time


has been a badge

of accomplishment.

Nobody feels

in control

all the time.

There is too much

to do

and no one

goes to bed

giving thanks that

he or she

has finished

the day’s

to-do list.

I try

to ask myself,

what one or two things

could make me

feel better

if done.


they are

small chores

that have been

nagging at me.

Many of us live

with too long

to-do lists

and the tasks

have a way

of increasing

when we

aren’t paying


Being mindful,


figuring out

what is


you feel


you can’t catch

your breath.



a limit

and sticking to it.
