I declare today a Wild Card Day.
A "Do Something Nice for Yourself" Day.
A "No to The Should-Haves" day.
I had a lot of things to do today, a very long list of "should haves." I should have updated my LinkedIn profile, I should have read the specs for a new freelance project I'm starting in a few weeks, I should have re-arranged my books by genre to fit in the new bookshelf I got and assembled (with the help of my Dad -- thanks Dad!) yesterday.
I didn't do any of these things. Instead, I ate: one chocolate peanut butter brownie, half of an M&M sugar cookie, and one vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting. Then I took a nap.
It was glorious!
I feel the way Sleeping Beauty must have felt after sleeping for all those hundreds of years, or after Super Mario hits one of the bonus mushrooms and gets a life boost. I feel like my tank is full, instead over dipping below a quarter like it usually is.
So I encourage you to slip a Wild Card Day into your deck, a bonus unexpected day that can be whatever you want it to be.
