No Fooling, I actually got off my butt and began cleaning! Hooray! I was still overwhelmed and depressed by the sheer amount of work my former lassitude had plunked onto my cleaning plate, but decided to “go in the moment” and just focus one task at a time for a set period of time vs. forcing myself to complete an entire room, or project to my usual expectations.
It worked! (hmm, intuitive house cleaning?)
I sorted and filed through all of the papers on the table, paid the bills, put away the gear, washed all of the placemats and linens, polished the heck out of the table and ended up with one spot of shining serenity among the chaos.
I also moved other furniture out of the way, vacuumed the area rugs and otherwise prepared to clean the downstairs tile floors. But then my time and energy limit was reached, so I ALLOWED myself to stop mid-task and finish it today. Wow!
What a change!
I’m proud that I made progress, and instead of feeling exhausted I feel energized. You release a TON of physic garbage when you declutter and clean your space. So onward today. Same approach, little by little, task by task for a certain amount of time, then I will allow myself to be satisfied and move on to other interests in my life with no guilt.
Writing group tonight, need to save energy. Also want to practice singing and voice acting.
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
