Waiting. Who likes it?
Right now I’m waiting to see if one of my photo editing programs will work for me. It has been giving me grief all day. I restarted the computer, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and I still don’t think it is going to work for me.
And while I’m not a big fan of multi-tasking I don’t feel that doing something else while you are waiting is necessarily multi-tasking. For instance, I am waiting for my husband to come home, but I’m not sitting by the door. I’m working and hanging out with Little Fish. We do a lot of waiting in life, at the grocery store, at stop lights. But, none of those moments are waisted if we use them right. At the grocery store Little Fish makes friends, at stop lights, I pay attention and work on focusing, but I also look back to check on Little Fish.
This year as I’ve seen Little Fish grow, I’ve realized that I want to live in the moment more, and stress less. I make to do lists and plan for the week/day. It definitely saves me time later and helps me focus on what I am doing know and worry less about how I am going to complete a project.
