Typically the week starts with more of a Manic Monday. Somehow over the weekend, I have managed to reset my Zen button and am feeling mentally better. I was kid free for most of the weekend and got to sleep in two mornings in a row. Well, 8:00 IS sleeping in for me. I still managed to get a few things done like laundry, ironing, sewing, vacuuming, carpet cleaning and some minor landscaping. All of those tasks required minimal thought about the task at hand so I spent a lot of time reflecting on my life and where I thought it was good and where I thought it was not so good. Sort of a personal inventory.
Somewhere along the way I realized that the goods were way more plentiful than the not so goods and those were trivial at best. I realized that I allow myself to get overwhelmed with the daily tasks which seriously knocks my sense of well being right out the window. If I approach those same tasks with a different mentality, I find that they become more enjoyable and end up in the good pile.
Not sure how long I will remember this latest lesson but I hope for a very long time!!
