Picture this.. you’ve been super busy for weeks, all you want is just one day to be home and do nothing. I know, wishful thinking.
This was the day. The day I would get up, actually shower then get right back into my jammies and do nothing but relax and piddle all day. Well . . I made one HUGE mistake .. I made my bed.
“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. – Admiral William H. McRaven
Now I’m sure you know exactly what happened next. . Mom mode kicked in .. “Oh! The bed looks nice, maybe I’ll put the flowers over here. Oh! That looks nice! Maybe I should dust. . You know what.. I should go clean the kitchen, wash Tatum’s clothes, pack his bag for tomorrow, meal prep, do a workout, fold said clothes” (heh heh heh – me breathing heavily). Then when you finally stop for just a second because your stomach has turned into a grizzly bear ready to attack if you don’t feed it. You realize how much you have achieved and even though you didn’t do the one thing you set out to do (nothing) you feel like you’re unstoppable.
In the end. Don’t be disappointed in the turn events, make the best of them (if possible). Today I was a wife, a mom, I was me and most of all I was super woman. Heyoo!
