Too often I reach the end of the day having not accomplished all (or anything, on some days) that I intended to do that day. Perhaps there were lots of interruptions, perhaps I was too tired, perhaps I was just too lazy to get it done that day.
I always start with the best of intentions for what I hope to accomplish that day. Sometimes I’m moderately successful, sometimes not at all. But the intentions with which I start my day motivate me and hopefully keep me focused throughout my day.
So even though I find myself frustrated and upset with myself that I didn’t accomplish what I intended to do, I will continue to start each day with the best of intentions, and pray that this is the day/week/month/year I rise to the challenge.
