Fresh Sheets! the floors vacuumed, all of the winter dirt washed from the window sills when I opened my windows for the first time this year today, the wash caught up for the week, and 2 pairs of shoes polished. It feels good.
I have been struggling with the housekeeping goals I have set, but I am doing better because I set them. This is the second time this month I reached my streak level. I've just got to keep pushing myself and I will see improvement. The best thing is that I am feeling a sense of satisfaction tonight because I have met my goal. This is the first time in a long time that I have felt satisfaction associated with housekeeping, and that is really an important thing in helping me gain the motivation I need to keep myself going. Otherwise, I start looking for satisfaction in other things where it's easier for me to find while my house goes to pot.
This week's quote:
"Laughter, song, and dance create emotional and spiritual connection; they remind of the one thing that truly matters when we are searching for comfort, celebration, inspiration, or healing: We are not alone."
