. . . require a fresh perspective.
When I went to bed last night (early and exhausted), I was feeling particularly rotten about myself -- and how I'd managed to have such a busy weekend, yet gotten "nothing done." (Y'know . . . things on my weekend to-do list. The laundry, for example. Cleaning my bathroom. Sorting through the mail on my desk. Preparing for a big meeting today.)
Tom challenged me to think about it differently. He reminded me that I did a lot of things this weekend - really good and important things. (Things on my calendar, but not on my weekend to-do list. Working out, for example. Meeting a friend for coffee. A League of Women Voters program meeting. Going to a movie. The Women's March.)
I'm thinking I made the wrong to-do list for the weekend. Maybe it was a super-successful weekend after all. And the laundry can wait.
(And THAT's a re-freshing perspective.)
