Gratitude and Joy

Day 141 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – GSD

A few years ago I asked Greg what his plans were for the day and he responded, “It’s a GSD day.” I had no idea what that was. He explained GSD stands for Get Stuff Done (OK, he didn’t say “stuff”). Since then, GSD days have become a “thing.”

I am a planner. I write out lists of stuff I want or need to do. I put items on my calendar. It keeps me organized and allows me to let go of the stress of remembering everything. GSD days mean fairly long lists.

A solid Friday to-do list.

As we approach summer, we have some big events coming up. We’re already booked on three trips, my daughter is coming out with my grandkids and we’re getting a puppy! I have a stack of lists! I actually thought about making a list of my lists – ACK!

I briefly considered writing a list of all my lists.

On any given GSD day, I grab my list, make sure I haven’t left anything off it and head out with a route planned. Last week was one of those days. I had a dozen things to do. List in hand, I accomplished everything with ease. As I backed into my garage to unload my purchases, I felt light. My list was full of crossed-off items and I’d dropped off the boxes at the UPS store, picked up the dry cleaning and taken care of a ton of other little errands!

Dry Cleaners … check.

I love lazy days. I am a big fan of sitting out on my patio sipping a beverage with ice tinkling against the glass and reading. But every now and then, you just need to get out there and get stuff done! The sense of accomplishment is a great feeling. The weight of pending chores is lifted off your shoulders and you experience true relaxation. 

When you’re done with your lists, you can really relax.

There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. GSD before you go and have fun!
