Iâ€™m having such a good day.
Iâ€™ve really embraced a new life philosophy. Basically, itâ€™s â€˜donâ€™t stress out so much.â€™ Sounds simple, right? But manâ€¦ itâ€™s taken me a while to figure out how to do this, exactly. But now that I have figured it out, I feel so free!
My daily goal is â€˜get one thing done.â€™ Just one thing. And if I get one thing done, great! I allow myself to feel awesome about it and donâ€™t think about all the other one million things that I should be doing. Does this mean my work To Do list is a mile long, Iâ€™m still wearing pajamas, Iâ€™m not sure if Iâ€™ve brushed my teeth (I think I have?), my emails are unanswered, and my kitchen is a disaster zone? Yup. Do I care? Suddenlyâ€¦ I just donâ€™t. Itâ€™s weird.
I think I can thank Henry for this transformation. I swear, heâ€™s taught me more in seven months than Iâ€™ve discovered on my own in nearly 29 years.
Henry says, â€œJust chill out, Mum.â€
What was my one goal of the day? I prepared a bunch of marketing materials for the clinic. And now they are done, so anything else I accomplish today is icing on the cake.
Hey, I baked cookies! Thatâ€™s an accomplishment.
A tasty accomplishment. By the way, thatâ€™s a Better Crocker GF mix and itâ€™s so good.
And I heated up lunch. Does microwaving a meal count as a victory? I guess itâ€™s better than just eating cookies all day long.
Hereâ€™s to chilling out. It makes for a disorganized life, but damn â€“ it sure feels pretty neat.
Are you trying to be more organized or less organized? I never thought being less organized would be my goal!
