Do you ever play the "should" game? "I really should do this," "I really should do that," feeling guilty for wanting to do something other than Priority Number One? I do it ALL THE TIME. It's really self-defeating to think this way.
This morning I started in with that familiar recording...but then I stopped. And I decided to take charge of my day. So instead of grumbling as I started in on my shoulds, I gave myself the gift of choosing what I really wanted to start with, which was clearing up the clutter that has crept into our entry, living room, and kitchen over the past few busy weeks.
Now here I am, less than an hour later. I completed a project that didn't take long, but has gotten my day off to a nice start. I have a house that is smiling at me and, in turn, I am smiling back! I can now move on to my other work, knowing that every time I walk through our first level, I will feel fantastic!
What small victory will you give yourself today?
Hi! I'm Lyn and this is where I blog about family, health, workouts, nutrition, meditation, relaxation & life in general. But it's not all about me--it's about inspiring healthy changes in other people's lives.
