Ten Things Thursday
You probably don’t have enough energy today to tackle your big projects, like major holiday planning, cleaning out the garage, or even just some of the everyday tasks at hand like cleaning, cooking and unloading the dishwasher. Hey, that’s what paper plates are for!!! So let’s go gently into this, shall we, and simply exercise your “Ten Things Thursday” muscles.
Maybe you have the “looming closet from hell” syndrome as well? Or maybe you have a desk that you haven’t seen since January for all the stuff piled on it. Or a project you need to begin. If you have a pile of mail, open ten items and deal with them tonight – whether that means paying a bill, shredding junk mail, or responding to an invitation. If you’ve got a pile of clean laundry sitting in a lonely corner waiting to be put away, just grab ten items and put them away. Get the picture? Sound reasonable? Something you can get a handle on? OF COURSE! The thing is… you are taking little steps towards achieving the goal. And you will begin to feel like you accomplished something, that you have started to undertake something, and you’re moving forward with it – that’s a great feeling!
Uh-oh… my closet is starting to make noises like the one in the old movie “Poltergeist”, so I’d better begin taking my own advice! If you never get any more posts from me, you’ll know it was indeed a wormhole to a planet where I will be crowned “Queen of the Wild Women!” HA!
