Do Something!!!

I always have a passing thoughts…

  • I should exercise more
  • drink more water
  • clean out my closet / desk / fridge
  • organize this
  • do that…

Then, often, I spend my day working my ass off, getting kids aligned, dealing with rescue things, treading water to stay sane.  I go to bed at night, and realize that I’ve just lived another day and done NONE of those things that would give me better health (physically or sanity-wise).  Each of those things takes time and effort to do as a whole – which is not a bad thing, it just often gets pushed to the side.  Realistically, most days, I won’t be able to get to all/any of those things in full.

But – baby steps – do SOMETHING!  Go to your closet, find one piece of clothing that you haven’t worn in a year, and toss it (I keep a bag in my closet, to encourage my discarding – when its full, I donate it).  Go have a glass of water – right now!   Drop to the floor, and see how long you can hold the plank position.  You aren’t necessarily changing your life by leaps and bounds – but you are making time for you.  You are investing in yourself (even if it’s just a wee bit – it counts).   Before long, maybe you’ll grab 3 things from your closet to purge, or maybe you can hold a plank for 2 minutes.

Don’t try to boil the ocean – all you can do is drink it, one (filtered!) glass at a time!
