Results: Day 3 of 21
I’m so excited to have completed 3 days of this discipline challenge! Three SUCCESSFUL days, I might add!
I was quite inspired by the notes that Crystal wrote for Day 3. I can TOTALLY relate to what she wrote and recently started realizing how the condition of the space around me affects the mood of my day. It makes sense, though, that if you wake up and there are messes and clutter from the day (or days) before, then it’s kind of oppressive. I already feel like I’m “behind”. I can’t just wake up and choose how to want to spend my time. I feel like my work is already cut out for me, just having to clean up from the day before. Ugh! What a yucky feeling! So, Korry and I decided that we’d make this our goal – to clean/straighten up our kitchen, living room, and dining room at the end of the day, each day. I think it will get easier and easier as the habit sticks, since we will know the clean-up time is coming, we’ll work harder to start the process (or even just keep up with it) earlier in the day/evening. That is the goal. I’m looking forward to seeing the positive effects of this “small” change.
So, this is my “one small habit” that I will be working on. I already have a very long list of the habits I want to establish, once I get a handle on the ones I’m already working on. 😉 I read ahead to the next day’s challenge, and much to my excitement, realized that I am already ahead of the game, since that is one task she asks us to do. I think it will be more exciting to tackle the new habits (instead of overwhelming), since I’ll be able to look back and see the success I’ve already had with the ones I’ve worked on, so I will be encouraged to keep on.
That’s all for now. I need to go and sort my mail. 😉 I did not have time to open it all at once yet today, so now I will go and do that, and place each item in its appropriate file folder. I was excited to receive multiple pieces of mail today, so I can do that exercise and get to re-setting that habit in motion. 🙂 Then I will be cleaning up before I turn in. Yay for baby steps! 🙂
