As you can imagine, sometimes keeping my home clean can seem like an overwhelming task. I am not sure about you but, there is so much to do, I am not sure I will ever get it done.
So, this is what I have been working on.I wanted to keep my kitchen counters clean. I really, really wanted my counters clean. 🙂
So, I did my other cleaning but I always started and ended with the counters. After a week, I was able to keep my counters clean every. single. day. WooHoo! It made me feel so good. I felt accomplished and dare I say proud of my accomplishment.
Simple I know but, so important to me.
When I felt like I was doing good and could maintain the clean counters, I worked on keeping the living and family room clean. After that, I worked on laundry. Laundry? you might ask. Yes. I do about 6 loads a day. So, I worked on keeping them off of my living room couch. Almost every day, I wash, dry and get the laundry put away.
My point is not to gloat or pat myself on the back (although it does feel great!). It is to let you know
when we have challenges or need to set some goals,we can complete them a little at a time.
Too often, we don’t allow ourselves the opportunity to complete our goals. We either set unrealistic goals that are impossible to achieve.
Or, we don’t allow ourselves enough time to complete them.
So, with any goals give yourself some time to complete them. Set small attainable goals.
Goals that will make you make you happy. They can seem silly to some, like my countertops. But, I love walking into my kitchen and seeing
that I accomplished something visible.
What are some things you are going to work on? What matters to you?
