It's The Little Things

Friday, May 10, 2013

Sometimes I forget that "life" doesn't always require grand gestures. The fact that I cannot do a LOT shouldn't get in the way of the fact that I can do a LITTLE.

I may not be able to do ALL of the laundry in one day, but I can do 1 load.

I may not be able to carve enough time to organize ALL of my kitchen cabinets, but I can organize 1 cabinet.

I may not be able to clean the ENTIRE refrigerator, but I can clean 1 shelf.

I may not be able to manage to practice ALL of my piano pieces, but I can practice 1 piece.

I may be too stressed with paying attention to ALL of my nutrition, but I can focus on getting 5 freggies every day. [Funny how almost everything else falls in line if I do that!]

I may not be able to manage an hour of time at my favorite craft - crocheting - but I can manage three rows on a small project.

I may not be able to manage a long time at exercise, but I can manage 10 minutes. I have found this is about the time needed for my endorphins to kick in. That has proven very important to me as far as attitude is concerned.

I may not be able to plan a week of meals, but I can manage one day - sometimes just the next meal.

Small steps taken as I can lead to progress!

    I needed to hear this today! emoticon emoticon

Feeling overwhelmed by all of the organizing and unpacking still needing to get done, so instead of wondering where to start, I'll tackle one box.
