We are at the whack a mole part of the new paradigm.
I spent much time cleaning the kitchen, but haven’t gotten everyone on board yet, so while I am doing something else, they mess the kitchen and don’t clean after themselves. I spent time organizing the living room, meanwhile the laundry has piled up. Now there is laundry to wash, dry, fold, and put away. Lving room looks great, but laundry has popped up and needs a whack. But we are also trying g to get to bed earlier, which means no laundry folding tonight. Meanwhile, my schoolwork mole has popped up and I have interviews to do, stuff to write, research to do. But then there is the exercise mole. And the spending time with kids doesn’t happen all by itself. And to get the house in order, there are certain things that need purchasing. But I am also trying to save money.
Throughout all of this, I am sticking to a few main goals. Focus on serenity. Breathe more, yell less. Start each morning with a motivational video, end each night with meditation. Believe it or not, these things are helping.
I have created a vision board (feels a bit hokey, I have never done such a thing, but I am up for trying new things this year). Seeing goals can really help, I think. I have also made myself a daily goals board, complete with stickers. And now, thanks to this blog post, I get a sticker for my writing goal today 🙂 and here are some of the books I intend to read through this year.
This is me, starting somewhere.
I hope everyone has a great week this week.
