My 2020 ‘To Do’ list remains unfinished! Focusing on my ‘To Be’ list instead.
Written by Dr. Roze Phillips on December 18, 2020
All things being equal, we are few days away from the end of 2020.
I’m not ready!
Where has the time gone?
I wanted to start a veggie garden.
I wanted to get more exercise.
I wanted to clean out my store room.
I wanted to declutter my wardrobe.
I wanted to bake a chocolate cake.
I wanted to connect with an old friend.
I wanted to drink more water.
I wanted to eat more vegetables.
I wanted to read Lord of the Flies.
I wanted to organize my laptop folders.
I wanted to eat breakfast everyday.
I wanted to call my mom more regularly.
It reminds me of a Peanuts cartoon. Charlie Brown jumps over the fence because he was tired of his old life. He wanted to get away; start over. Lucy asks him if anything is different. His answer: ‘No…. I’m still me.’
Unlike Charlie Brown, I don’t need to jump the fence though. I’m proudly flawed; proudly human! I accept me for me.
