things i will get to always, never, and “someday”

I CAN USUALLY COUNT on myself. I will never blow off a workout, forget to brush my teeth, or fail to make my bed. These are my bare-minimum commitments to self-care. But when I start to look at my broader life, I can see things fall into different categories. ALWAYS: • Balance my checkbook every 30 days—old-school-style, in the check register, just like my dad taught me. • My job. Easy because I love it and need it (and my boss will read this). NEVER: • Sift through the files of “important presentations” that I brought home from work two jobs ago, and that gather dust in a basket. • Read Crime and Punishment, which my husband gifted me the first year we were dating because he knew I “liked to read.” “SOMEDAY”: • Stitch up the ottoman…

what travel destination makes you nostalgic for your childhood?

Anyplace you go in a station wagon. @DEBBIETHOMSS #RSLOVE “WHEN I WAS 12, WE DROVE FROM MASSACHUSETTS TO DOLLYWOOD, LISTENING TO A SINGLE CASSETTE OF DOLLY PARTON THE ENTIRE WAY. NOW, WHEN I TAKE ROAD TRIPS WITH MY KIDS, I ALWAYS ADD SOME DOLLY TO OUR PLAYLIST.” @KATHLEENFITZ Los Angeles International Airport. When I was young, we lived close by. My dad worked for Pan Am, and my sister and I spent a lot of time hanging out with him at LAX. We would lie on the hood of his car, and the planes taking off would fly right over our heads.

“optimism is the more helpful emotion”

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED—and, frankly, life-altering—happened when my marriage ended: I realized that I could no longer afford to be a pessimist. I could no longer allow my worst thoughts to gather twigs and ribbons, and make a permanent home in my mind. I realized that pessimism wasn’t going to get me out of bed, or get the coffee made, or pack the kids’ lunches, or do the laundry, or make any deadlines. Pessimism wasn’t going to help me or my children. And so, in a very dark time, it occurred to me that being optimistic moment by moment was a gift I could give myself. Even if whatever I’m hoping for doesn’t materialize, I am feeding my spirit in the meantime. I am not poisoning the present with worry or despair or…

what should i read next?
