The Daily EO: April 11th, 2012

I have a Punch List.  You may think that is a list of people I want to punch, but really I don’t have a list like that.  Really.  I don’t.  It would be too much energy to keep a list.  If you were going to punch a bunch of people, I’d say, do it right when they deserve it. Don’t save it up – get it over with and move on.  No lists.  Unless you want to keep a Punched List – then you can relive the punches.  No, a Punch List – and I’ll admit I made the name made up – is a list of all the things I want once I am Punching the Clock again.

“You will work again” I have been told.  (I sometimes have my doubts).   There may be some of you out there who have been unemployed when you really want the opposite.  What a demoralizing process:  No.  No.  No.  No thank you.  No, you don’t meet the criteria.  No.  Yes. . . actually No.  Nah.  No. No.  And the best of all: ”          “.   It is constant.  So, when you need to be your best to impress a potential employer, you are surrounded by people telling – or implying by their silence – that you are not good enough.   Really hard on the soul.

On my Punch List today is a new Kate Spade wallet, meet with a dietician/nutritionist, finally finding a financial adviser (who does not work on commission), hire a personal shopper, regularly threaded eyebrows at Gee Beauty, and a new can opener.   Just note, if you ask me my Punch List tomorrow, it may differ – that’s because it is an organic entity that has never been recorded anywhere until today.   It’s just something that I use when I am annoyed.  Like  – ack, I hate plucking my eyebrows, I want a professional – and boom, a new entry on the Punch List.  Or when I am sorrowful.  Like, don’t think about that denied opportunity, oh!  You know what I need?  A new wallet that isn’t scuffed.

Yes, call me materialistic, I am okay with that.  I am to a certain extent.  Aren’t we all a little?  Tell me Ghandi didn’t covet a new robe.

I just added the can opener today.  It shouldn’t feel like I have arthritis when I am opening a can – it should just glide, don’t you think?  That was not meant as a metaphor for life.  I just need to find my can opener or get a new one.  Stop reading so much into things, guys!

April 11th, 2012 Extra-Ordinary:  Filling up the Punch List & focusing on the good.  Not those that you want to punch.
