I have a bad habit of overestimating my ability to accomplish tasks. Right now I’m swimming in a sea of deadlines, both of my own creation and those provided by others. It’s reached a point where I’m nearly paralyzed by how much needs to be done. So, rather than digging in and attacking the mountain, I took two days off and did as little as possible.
Sometimes we have to cut ourselves a little slack and that’s why I host the Sunday confessional. I never want anyone to quit aspiring to be a better person, but I want readers of this site to embrace their human nature. We screw up, we make fools of ourselves, and that’s ok, it’s just another part of life.
So my confession this week?
Sometimes letting the other adult in the house know they are in charge, swiping the kids’ bubble bath, procuring a glass of wine, and escaping into a novel and then a nap is a perfectly acceptable avoidance technique.
We’re smack in the middle of the holiday season, happy Chanukah!
So, how you doin? /JoeyTribbiani
