A List and Grace...{20 of 31 Slice of Life}

I woke up this morning worried about my days.  This week they were fully consumed with online learning and helping my own children navigate this new way of living.  I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and thought I need a schedule and realized as things come up for others I usually respond and a schedule wouldn't work.  However, a list of things I want to do each day could help me find balance and make sure we were doing things that help us connect and create with each other.    So, I wrote a fluid, flexible, and list of fun.  Maybe a list would help this weird sense of time and questioning I feel we are all in.  I wrote it.  I shared it.  It got a bit derailed today and there's always tomorrow.  I'm giving myself grace.  Grace might just be my new favorite word.

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for fostering this writing community and offering this challenge.


  1. "A list of things I want to do each day could help me find balance" - exactly the words that I needed to read tonight! Thank you!

  2. Grace is such a beautiful way of giving permission when life isn't perfect. Starting with grace will give you the perfect balance for which you are looking!

  3. I needed a list too, but instead I cleaned my work area (on the kitchen table)...and that definitely helped by productivity and focus. Maybe I'll get to the list for Monday!
