Stars, Snails...and TO DO Lists


"To Do" lists are awesome.

Until they squeeze the happiness from our lives.

Three quick questions:

1. Ever feel like you're pushing a brick-delivery wheelbarrow around 24-hours a day?

2. Ever feel your "To Do" list is constantly live streaming in your head?

3. Ever feel completely overwhelmed by everything in your life that needs to get done?

"To Do" lists are a great way to help us remain focused and diligent in getting done what needs to get done, but at the same time, they can steal the smiles from our hearts.

If you seem to have lost your great smile...especially on the inside...perhaps it's because you have been too much "TO DOing" life and too little "TO LOVing" life.

Five more quick wonderings:

1. When was the last time you took a walk and listened to the birds' choir?

2. When was the last time you lost yourself in a book that was impossible to put down?

3. When was the last time you looked at the stars and wondered what was out there?

4. When was the last time you helped a snail get to the other side of the path before he was stepped on?

5. When was the last time you took the time to laugh at your pet's silly antics?

Unfortunately...none of those items ever make a "To Do" list.  

Yes..."To Do" lists are powerful tools to encourage productivity. But there comes a time when overwhelming "To Do" lists can take over our lives and drain every ounce of happiness from us. 

Don't let your "To Do" list steal your happy.

Make time to save a snail.
