Beware the ‘To Do’ List April 18, 2013 By Karen Andrews 5 Comments Hello! You are welcome to subscribe to my updates for free. Happy reading!‘To Do’ No, it should actually read ‘What I Want to Do When I Have the Chance to Do It, at an Unspecified Time in the Future, which Isn’t – In Fact – Important Enough for Me to Get Started on Right Now’. So, I should really say ‘Wish List’? Well, that doesn’t inspire a healthy state of optimism, does it? It’s the spirit-sibling to ‘I Wish’. Fine, anything. Write anything, call it anything, so long as it means you’re getting words out of your brain. It’s positive action. Look at me! So I am! Okay, what am I going to call this list? ‘To Do’ after all? Sure. ‘To Do’. See that wasn’t so hard. I suppose not. And here’s a shitty flower for your efforts. Wow. Thanks. Put that on the list: ‘Learn to Draw Better’. Excellent idea. And that is how I began planning for the second half of 2013. Karen AndrewsKaren Andrews is the creator of Miscellaneous Mum.

I’ve love to. Reply Veronica says April 19, 2013 at 7:22 am It’s a lovely flower. To Do lists scare me a little. They seem so grumpy, like they’re shouting at me. Reply Karen says April 19, 2013 at 12:24 pm Mine shout at me with their shouty voices. Reply Tasha says May 2, 2013 at 6:53 am I like your flower drawing Karen! And I hear you on the ‘to-do’ list. I call mine the ‘running to-do’ list because I keep adding things to it whenever I think of them. And they do get done (some not until weeks later), but at least their out of my head, because letting them stay in my head doesn’t help me sleep… Tasha Tasha recently posted..Today I am grateful for: my Beautiful Girl Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
