At times I feel as if the hardest aspect of daily life is managing myself. I set rules, makes promises to myself, and then find all sorts of reasons to ignore what needs to be done. I often get frustrated with myself for this crazy pattern, but badgering myself only makes matters worse.
I should know better. I am sufficiently capable to complete major projects for work; yet, I can’t seem to keep the kitchen counters cleared off. Give me a special event to plan and I’m right on it, just don’t look at the floors at home that need mopped.
After many months of erratic sleep, a reasonable pattern is emerging of bed by midnight and awake around 5:30 a.m. Following yesterday’s success in clearing out way too many magazines, I started in on clearing off precious kitchen real estate. It’s a task that I have avoided for months … many, many months.
It’s nearly 7:30 now and the dreaded paper mountain with receipts from August 2016 has been cleared away. The litter box has been cleaned and a blog post written.
There’s much more on today’s list, but this is a start.
Have a good day doing whatever it is you do!
