As you may have gathered by now, I'm a lover of lists. I'm a dreamer and always have a kazillion plans in the works, ideas on the shelf and projects on the go.
But there are times when I have to actually list my lists and then go through them and be realistic. What am I actually going to get done? What really matters? Which dreams do I want to chase and which do I want to let go of?
Honestly, I do this far more often than I care to admit because I tend to overwhelm myself with activity. It's actually been one of the hardest parts of my maternity leave: not being able to do as much as I used to or had planned to.
Inasmuch as I love dreaming, letting go of some of those dreams sort of breaks my heart. Even if letting go means that I might actually get some of my lists done, I still keep inviting my "to dos" in. I am a lover of taking on too much. I'm working on it though.
Because more than anything, I'd like to realize the more important dreams.
I just need to figure out what those might be.
Off to make a new list I go! :P
