I’m sort of a contrarian. I want everything to be done first, so I can have peace and calm. AND I want plenty of time to play.
I was raised that you work first, play later. We all want plenty of free time to play or just relax right?
But what do you do when there is more work to do than time or energy to get it done?
That’s why I was so determined to figure out a way to keep your house clean, and still be able to play or relax on weekends. I can’t relax when I have unfinished work staring at me. A dirty house stresses me out! How about you?
There in lies the secret…
You find the fastest, most efficient ways to get things done.
The same thing applies to all areas of your life.
When I was in corporate, they really valued face time. But I was a single mom with a life to live outside of work. I got my work done by 5 most of the time.
When I was growing up, mothers spent at least an hour – often more, getting dinner on the table. When I made the decision that we were going to eat healthier, I had to find a faster way to pull that off. My daughter wasn’t getting to bed early enough as it was.
I went through hundreds of old recipes and figured out how to do it faster. Most of them I share with you in the recipes tab above.
Maybe you want to lose weight and be healthier, but you find that you just don’t have the time or energy to cook? Check out the recipes. They are fast, inexpensive, and taste good. Nothing beats home cooked meals!
Oh, and the other great thing about cooking at home is that you’ll spend more quality time with your family. The kitchen really is the heart of the home.
So, what do you want your life to look like?
I wanted a clean house where I could relax and not be embarrassed if someone stopped over. I wanted us to be healthy. And I wanted plenty of free time for us to enjoy life.
You might want to be rich and be willing to work long hours to accomplish that. In that case, your life would look very different from mine. You would be more focused on spending your time where you could make money. You would probably pay to have your house cleaned and lawn cut.
You might have a hobby or a passion that you want to make sure you have time for…
Whatever it is you want out of life, make a decision – then set out to make it happen.
