Not today

I will wake up at my first alarm, but not today.

I will get to school at the time I want, but not today.

I will get that 2nd step lesson in during morning meeting, but not today.

I will fill out that form, again, but not today.

I will print and send that other form, but not today.

I will organize behind my desk, but not today.

I will leave before 5, but not today.

I will make that dinner I had mostly prepped, but not today.

I’ll make that meal plan so dinner is ready on time, but not today.

I will read the next book in the series, but not today.

I will get to bed at the time I hoped, but not today.

I will do a lot of things, but just not today.

  1. Beautiful format; I will be borrowing that right away!
    And, yeah. I start every Monday full of hope and ambition. I plan HUGE GOALS and all will be so intentional and healthy and completed! And then stuff happens, and/or my mindbodysoul chooses to bonk out, and the chain of “not todays” happens. For many years I saw those “not today” days as failures. Now I am calling those “reality” and embracing them as responsive adjustments to my own needs. (Or trying to!)

  2. My mind is whirling with all the possible reasons why one might not get things done today…vacation, sickness, procrastination, a conscious decision not to…..I love both the certainty that things will get done, and also the acceptance that it won’t be today.
