Scribble Diary: Week 5

Standard

After a week off, I was ready to get back into my Scribble Diary. This week’s page let me do one of my favorite things: make a to-do list. ย I live by those things and I love nothing more than checking items off the list until every last one is done. In addition, my page asked me to think about something a little deeper (or at least that’s how I took it) in regards to where I stand in a hierarchy.

Scribble Diary, Week 5

My to-do lists are usually pretty lengthy and I often have more than one. I keep one on my desk at work, one in my calendar, and another on a dry erase board on the fridge. There is always something to be done and rarely will you catch me standing still. Today’s to-do list is made up of my usual Saturday morning tasks. And just like every weekend, I have to work past the distractions I’d rather be doing instead of scrubbing bathrooms and dusting. Let’s just say knitting and Halloween candy slowed me down a bit this morning. It was worth it.

I found the hierarchy prompt to be very interesting because this is actually something I’ve pondered quite a bit. ย I’ve never been one to climb ladders at work or in life, mainly because I strive for personal happiness and contentment above anything else. ย However, I often wonder what drives others to keep climbing even when it the cost is well beyond the reward. ย For some, there is never enough power, money, or success. Shouldn’t success come from the inside? ย The middle suits me best as I’ve found a place in life that is comfortable and gives me the opportunity to do what I love and be with who I love.

Last, but not least, I love how the last prompt relates to previous scribble I made in Week 4’s page. After a couple of months of searching, I finally found the perfect wool, double-breasted peacoat. It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to make a gorgeous scarf to go with it, (I have the perfect yarn, too).

*Squee* I love it!

  1. I relate to the list thing. I have a few myself. I like to re-write mine so I can make note of the things I’ve actually done. But It’s not long before the list is long again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Do you think it will get cold enough in Phoenix for you to enjoy your new purchase? The last couple of years, I haven’t been able to make it through my sweatshirt collection. Secretly, I’ve always wanted a variety of coats and actually keep them in the “coat closet” by the door.

  3. Love your scribble diaries … inspired to move out of my own mold – e-journalling (aka boring) – and try mucking around a bit with sketching, colours … very creative and inspiring, C.B.
