Planning to have less stress

Magic wand

Its Friday night. Time to relax!

My house is clean. The laundry is done. The grocery shopping is done. Life feels pretty good right now. You might even ask, “does she have some magic power?”

Oh sure, I have to work tomorrow, and I’ll be working boo-coo overtime the next couple of weeks, but I think I’ve got it under control. I’ve even given you the plan in the last few posts.

My daughter will be here for dinner tomorrow night. No sweat, its all planned and ready to go. I have the food planned for not only the entire weekend, but for all next week. I know I’m not going to feel like putting much effort into feeding myself, so having food ready is a must!

Is it magic?

No – its making a plan, and implementing the plan.

I planned for everything I’m going to need.

I got the heavy housework done.

I’ve been picking up stuff for Thanksgiving dinner along the way.

I planned to have nothing to do so that I can spend quality time with my daughter this weekend.

And I worked my butt off for a couple of days to get it all done.

I don’t have any real special abilities or talents. No magic wand. No fairy dust or cosmic helpers.

The only real asset that I have is a dogged determination to be on top of things and a willingness to put in the work to get things done.

I truly value my downtime, and I plan to make sure I have some.

There was nothing really going on tonight. So, I could get the shopping done and a pot of chili made so the weekend is free and clear once I get off work tomorrow night, or I could do what most people do and decide that I don’t feel like it.

Of Course I Don’t Feel Like It! But come tomorrow, I will be so glad I did it.

Consider this a Pep Talk!
