1) It only lists things I need to do which is daunting and can be discouraging when nothing gets checked off.
2) Those things I "need" to do really aren't needs, at least not most of them. My priorities and pressures on myself are in the wrong places.
3) I rarely take the time to take care of myself, hence the exhausted and frustrated feeling.
I've devised a way to fix all those issues. I am going to put it all, my household chores and self care items, on my Want To Do List. So, without further ado, here is my new list. I was reviewing it last night and I've already finished some items. Go me!
