The challenge of a clean slate

It is the start of a new day at the start of a new week.  There is a fresh snow to make everything appear bright and clean.
As I look out on the freshness of it all the opportunities are overwhelming.  Of all the things I could do with all of this freshness…  Where should I start?  How do I prioritize?  My mind races from the moment to the day to the week and beyond.  Read a book?  Shovel the snow?  Plan my week? 
As I fixate on the options and possibilities I realize I want to pace myself and be thoughtful in my actions:  some good music, a cup of coffee, a conversation with my daughter.  Al good and important things.  Am I pacing myself or just getting distracted?
A bit less analysis and a bit more savoring the time I have will put things into perspective.
