To Do is Never Done

August 1: There are some events coming your way that you already know about -- and you may be looking forward to them. But are you truly prepared for them? Unless you take time today to do some organizing in your life, you may be caught off guard when the time comes. This imbalance in your mood won't be major, but it will distract you from all the fun you could be having. Think ahead and get some stuff out of the way now so you won't have to worry about it later.
My horoscope for today. This is more like my horoscope for every damned day of the world. All I do is worry about stuff I need to get done, and think about how great it would be if I could get it done and get it out of the way so I could relax -- but as soon as I actually get something checked off the list, something else rears its head, so it's just one long "To Do" checklist. "Relaxing" or "not worrying" always gets shoved to the bottom.

This evil little bit of advice is that very demon that prods me day and night, weekend, weekday, and that part about not having worries later is a LIE. I live by this advice, it drives me everyday. It's the kind of things that feeds workaholism.

{I don't mean an *actual* demon like a little critter or something. Demons are real. They are just a part of your psychological makeup, part of your mind... addictions, obsessions, or even just worries.}

I'm convinced we humans are hamsters on a perpetually turning wheel. As we age, it gets harder to keep up the pace.

There does come a point where you realize that some stuff is just not ever going to get done and will have to wait until retirement. And it may not even get done then. Phukkit. You can only do so much.
