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. 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.
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. 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. However, I often wonder what drives others to keep climbing even when it the cost is well beyond the reward. For some, there is never enough power, money, or success. Shouldn’t success come from the inside? 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).
