My day usually starts around 6:00 a.m., when the dreaded alarm starts screaming at me to get up! It’s never a pretty thing, but, after quickly reaching over to turn it off, and save what little sanity I still possess, I reluctantly stretch, yawn and begin contemplating the day before me. This is the planning phase… what do I need to accomplish today in order to consider it a productive one? There are soooo many things that have to be done around the house; floors to vacuum and mop, furniture and knick knacks to dust, linen and clothes to wash and kids to drop off. There are groceries to pick up, errands to run, dinner to cook, dogs to wash, bills to pay, and the list goes on and on! It’s exhausting just thinking about it, but I always think to myself, at this point in the day, “today I’ll get it all done!” I always start the day with good intentions…then I get out of bed and that’s usually where it all goes wrong!
It’s inevitable, I guess, that things don’t always go according to plan. For whatever reason most of the things on my list will probably fall by the wayside, as I make time for other, more important things, whatever those things may be! I won’t get around to doing half, or on some days, even a quarter of the things that I planned on doing that morning, as I lay in bed, my head full of ambitious thoughts!
At night, I usually lay there in bed and, just before closing my eyes to drift off, think about all of the things that I didn’t get done during the course of the day. My brain starts nagging… “You didn’t get half of the things you wanted to do today, done!” “What’s wrong with you?” “Can’t you prioritize?” “Now, you’ve got all of that to do tomorrow!” “You could have spent the time relaxing.” “Now you’ve got even more laundry to do!” “You’ll never get it all done!” That’s when I shut that off, just as I’ll do to the alarm, when it goes off, in the morning! I remind myself that I got a ton of things done today and that all of those things that I wanted to do today, and didn’t, will still be there in the morning. If I get around to doing any of it… great! If not… that’s fine too! None of it’s life threatening. My family’s been taken care of, and the dogs have been washed, so everyone’s sleeping comfortably tonight, all is well! There’s always tomorrow.
It’s easy to find yourself overwhelmed, at times, by all of the things that you need to do, but it’s very important to remind yourself that life isn’t always about, “getting things done.” Life is too short for that!

Some of them will help you achieve some of your goals today, others are perfect for when you take the time to just relax and breathe!
