I will SIMPLIFY and learn to enjoy more again!
Instead of making myself crazy trying to attend to too many things at once, I will focus on single action steps and habits every 21 days – or for simplicity and sanity’s sake, perhaps each month. The timing does not matter. The commitment does.
I will also remember to tuck my to-do’s away for a moment each day to simply stop, be present and laugh with my kids and my husband.
So, the first Monthly Commitment:
To simplify -- Reclaim Mike and my bedroom.
To enjoy – Dance each day!
Why these particular commitments? Because I want to wake and go to sleep each day with a smile and I find that very difficult to do in the mass of clutter I’ve been calling Mike and my room. And, because as I look back six years to when Mike and I met, I recall that loving to dance was one of the first things that drew us to each other. Yet, we almost never dance in our home anymore. Time to re-embrace the fun of it together with the kids.
Wish me luck! Cheer me on. Ask me in 5 days, 10, 15… 21 days how I am doing. Then, at the month’s end, remind me to take stock of my first Monthly Commitment. And, if you wish, leave me a comment about your own Monthly Commitment so I can cheer you on as well, praying for us as I move along with single-focused smiles!
