What a difference a day makes
Shortly after I woke up this morning, I started thinking about how different my morning was yesterday. Yesterday - dizzy, spinning (and worse), today - calm (where's my coffee?). Yesterday - "how will I get everything done that's on my schedule?", today - "what still needs to be done?". Yesterday - laying in bed (or on the floor), today - working at my computer & making phone calls. Yesterday - couldn't even think about food, today - where IS my coffee? Yesterday, I was reminded that sometimes other people need to take care of things so that I can take care of my most important things. Yesterday, it was taking care of my health so that I could be productive today. Sometimes, it's saying "no" to a project or commitment, so that I can say "yes" to the things that make the most difference. Sometimes you need to take a day, a few hours, or a few minutes to take care of yourself, so that you can be your best today. Will you let your schedule be filled with "yesterdays"? Or "todays"?
