Thankful Thursdays | Southern York County Pennsylvania Newborn and Family Photographer

Today I am thankful for my inbox.  How sad would it be if I didn’t have anything that needed to be done and if no one else needed me to do something for them?  When I got my first job, I would be completely stressed out because I wanted my inbox to be empty.  There would be days that I’d see the bottom of the inbox and I would be giddy.  That lasted for only a couple minutes.  Then one day, my boss pulled me aside and said to me, “Your inbox will never be empty, and there will always be something on your to-do list.  It’s okay to have some things in your inbox and on your to-do list.  You can only do one thing at a time.  Just organize and prioritize and reevaluate.”  It was valuable piece of advice.  There are days when I think about everything that I need to accomplish, and I feel like I will never be able to make it all happen.  And, you know what?  I do make it happen.  I just stop myself.  Take that deep breath.  Then I organize and prioritize and reevaluate.  One task at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time.  It is good to busy.  It means I have a full life.
