Today we had beautiful weather here in Edmonton. The temperature rose to +14 C. It would have been a perfect day for a walk in the ravine near my home. Or I could have sat out on my balcony and enjoyed the day. Or I could have gone to the library to pick up the books that are on hold for me.
I could have done all of these things, BUT!!!! Instead I made the choice to stay inside my home and not even open the patio doors. I was feeling tired this afternoon so I took a nap under the bed covers I've used all winter.
I did accomplish some things indoors today but I could have put them off for another day or for later in the day when it began cooling off.
I made some very bad choices today and I will live with some regret. But I don't have to wallow in those bad choices tomorrow. Tomorrow I can choose to make better choices. This is a lesson I seem to have to learn quite frequently - making a better job of the choices I have before me.
Hopefully I'll have less and less "wasted days and wasted nights" to regret over and more and more "productive days and restful nights".
May you have a productive day and a restful night.
