Now it’s time to get serious. We’ve reached the hard category, once you hit this category it’s easy to give up, to throw your hands in the air and say nope, I quit! Good thing we haven’t started the process of putting these into action yet and are still categorizing them! That’s MUCH easier 🙂
For me, the biggest thing here still is going to be related to my time management. I want to be less serious and laugh more, but when you book yourself the point you can’t enjoy life, it kind of defeats the purpose. Rest more? Really, who does that? I’d love to but who’s got time for that?? This one makes me laugh at myself…Church involvement, get involved with one thing at Church. Um, Shonda, your goal is to simplify your life and do less not more, so why are you adding yet another volunteer avenue? (Don’t worry, I know why, and I know how I’m going to work it in without stress!); Open minded – this one is under Motherhood…without going into to much detail right now, we are foster care providers as well as going through the adoption process, so this is very important to me. And last but not least Reactions – think first…is it really a mountain??
While it’s easy to list out the goals for this category, actually implementing them will be the challenge. To make this process easier, it is imperative that I keep these goals on my mind from here on out, never forgetting them, always thinking about them and how they impact my life and how they could totally change my life for the better.
Your homework is to get those hard categories listed out separately and add your short term and long term goals to them. Start now in thinking of these goals daily. If need be, write them on post its and stick them on your bathroom mirror so you see them every morning. They aren’t there to give you anxiety, they are there to give you courage and hope for a simplified life.
Take a deep breath, this weekends post will be on the
Impossible Extremely Hard category. Don’t worry, we can get through them!
