Post #16 in the Blog Every Day in May Challenge, 250 words or less. Prompt for May 16: Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it.
This prompt is the hardest yet. I have nothing difficult about my lot in life; I am totally content.
I do have a problem with focus. I start on one task, get distracted, and move on to something else. What was I saying? Oh, yes. Focus.
I start writing a blog and remember that I need to pack for our upcoming trip. I start packing and remember that I didn’t call to cancel the newspaper. I call to suspend the paper and remember I need to print out a travel list, so I do.
And then I…let’s see. I still need to find my hiking stick…but by the time I get to the basement I may have other ideas about why I’m there.
Yes, I guess that is my lot in life that I’d better be working on. My only solution is keeping lists of everything as it pops into my mind. Now where did I put that stack of lists?
