“..that’s the main thing that separates the happy people from the other people: the feeling that you’re a practical item, with a use, like a sweater or a socket wrench.” – Barbara Kingsolver (Animal Dreams)
I feel like a practical item most days. I am a tool speciallie crafted and designed for accomplishing tasks. For solving problems and making things happen. I work hard at getting things done. I use Habitica and Todoist and Google Inbox. And it makes me feel good.
So far my use is just finding my use, but even that is useful.
Today: I am good at folding the laundry. Taking my friend out for a drink. Sitting on the porch. Doing the budget. Grocery Shopping. Going to a party.
It’s nice to feel useful.
