Sisyphus, was a king (from Greek mythology) who was compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat the act each day for eternity.  

Yep, I’m having a week like that–so much to do that at the end of the day I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything.

So this morning, I opened the cupboard above my desk where I have a few thoughts taped, and reread Wally Amos‘s wonderful WATERMELON creed: (Follow the first letters vertically for the Watermelon)

Whatever you believe creates your reality. Believe that life is a positive experience and it will be.
Attitude is the magic word. Your greatest asset is your attitude. Be positive regardless.
Together everyone achieves more. There are no limits to what we can accomplish together.
Enthusiasm is the wellspring of life. There is no limit to what can be accomplished with it.
Respect yourself, as well as others. When you begin to respect yourself, your whole world changes.
Make commitments, not excuses. There is overwhelming power in the words, Yes, I will!
Everyday can be a fun day. Fun is the lubricant that keeps life moving forward. Laugh a lot.
Love is the answer. Whatever the question, it is the greatest force in the Universe.
One day at a time. One task at a time. All of life happens in increments of one.
Never give up or become a victim. You are guaranteed to lose if you give up.

Awe, I feel better! Where’s that to-do list? One task at a time, to be done with enthusiasm and love! Aren’t mornings, possibilities and blank pages wonderful?

Can I do it? With, God’s grace, Yes, I will!
