“Each morning sees some task begun, Each evening sees it close, Something attempted, something done, Has earned a night’s repose.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Positive Quote:

“Each morning sees some task begun

Each evening sees it close

Something attempted, something done,

Has earned a night’s repose.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

 

Have you ever had one of those days where it seems like you can’t accomplish one thing? In life, there will continue to be fires to be put out. There will be things that take over your to-do list.

 

This used to bother me. Until I realized that those things, those interruptions, those fires… those were part of the job. That completing/fixing one of those should be something I was content with. Changing how I viewed these things changed my whole perspective. Now when the phone rings or an email pops up that is marked urgent or important, I close my eyes, clear my head and then answer the phone or open the email and try to help.

 

When I get home from work, my husband and I ask each other if we did the things we wanted to get done that day or if we have ‘homework’. I would say 7 times out of 10 we are ok with what we have done in that day. It may not have lined up with what we planned on, yet more often than not, it turned out all right.

Have a tremendous Thursday and if you are in a cold area, stay warm. It was 1 degree when I came into work today; too cold.
