A Different Kind of Bucket List

Procrastination breeds its own stress.

* go to the dentist
* get your wisdom teeth pulled
* meet with the accountant
* make a legal will
* make any phone calls you have been dreading
* forgive the person you need to forgive
* get those pants hemmed
* take the used books to a consignment store
* have a full medical exam done
* apply for life insurance
* take your vehicle in for a tune-up
* take a deep breath and have the confrontation you have been avoiding

Check off any other tasks on your mental to do list. This will free up head space and time.

This list brought to mind some relationships that have been on my mind for years, but are still broken (at least from my point of view). I wrote some letters, asking for forgiveness and hoping to start things on the road to mending, but I am not sure if I will actually send them. It was late at night so I was brutally honest and in the light of day my courage is waning. I put out a fleece. If they give me their addresses, I'll mail them; if not, I'll burn them. I was surprised how good it felt just to write them and finally say what's been on my heart.

The only thing I don't need to do on this list is the vehicle tune-up (thanks honey!).
