I use to think I had a control issue. Truth is I am a producer. Here’s why. I wake up with an ideal day in mind, things I’ll get done, improve, or clean then life jumps in front of it with someone else’s ideal day. It can be the mention of a holiday plan, party, evening out doesn’t matter once its put on my radar, it takes the place of my original plans. Suddenly all my productive focus turns towards seeing to it. Whatever “it” may be. Shopping, fixing, cooking, helping make the “it” happen is very satisfying.
Yet I secretly believe I have this room in my head filled with those days I woulda done my thing, just waiting for me to open the door. My only hope is that when I finally turn the knob things march out single file and not in one huge heap.
