But today was different. I finally tackled a succession of phone calls and little to-do items that I'd been avoiding for a while. None of the tasks was particularly difficult, but together, they were easy to avoid. Completing the entire list took less than 15 minutes, but the sense of relief I felt and the pleasure I took at crossing them off my list was liberating. Even better, scheduling appointments involved much less dodging of other obligations than I feared it would.
I feel ten pounds lighter, which begs the question, why did I wait so long?
Not a question to be pondered on Small Success Thursday. The bitterness of regret interferes with the sweet feel of success.
