I was driving home Easter weekend not looking forward to doing some mundane chores with Adam. So instead of focusing on the fact that I didn't want to tackle the chores. I asked myself "what do I want?" I simply wanted some quality time with Adam to talk about our day. He had been in Dao class all day, and I always love hearing about what he is learning.
So when we got home I suggested we grab a dessert and put the chores off until another day. (They could wait, and surprise the chores eventually got handled and everything was perfect.) So we tried a new wine bar that had just opened up near us, Mosset Wine Bar!
The dessert was good, the service was a little slow, there are some growing pains. It is a place we will head back to and are how it grows and expands.
It is a little more useful to ask yourself what do you want. When I answer that question, I start filling my life with the things I want. Suddenly I have no time to do the things I no longer want. Of course I always have chores; I get to do those. In this case the chores could wait a day. This is not about ignoring what needs to be done, it is about approaching life in a useful and positive state.
