Lists! Lists! Lists!
Hello everyone I’m Charlee and I’m a List-a-holic
It started out small I would make shopping lists and homework lists and then it grew. Soon I was making to-do lists and birthday lists and phone number lists and then one day I realised I was addicted to making lists.
I decided I had to stop; I thought lists were ‘A Bad Thing’, I figured if I made lists about things I was too controlling and not at all spontaneous.
So I went cold turkey, I stopped making lists altogether. It wasn’t that hard I just stopped. But then little things happened, I forgot meetings I had organised, I was unprepared for things and I lost stuff… Stopping the lists didn’t make me more spontaneous it just made me more messy and disorganised.
So I decided to embrace my list making and now that I’ve stopped worrying about it, it’s kind of nice. I have lists for present ideas (great when Christmas and birthdays come around) I have lists of things I have to do each day/week/month I have a list for this blog and then also a list of topics that I plan to write about, one day. I have lists of nice quotes and pretty things I have seen. I have gone full on list crazy and the thing is now that I have these lists I don’t worry about them. I give myself permission to ignore them and it’s fine, just knowing they are there is fine.
I used to think I was the only one inflicted by List-mania but turns out I’m not alone there are more of us out there so today I’m saying don’t be ashamed be proud of your lists and enjoy them.
