It's already the end of the week! Wow, where did that go? "The hurrier I go the behinder I get." could be my mantra but ... no!
After several weeks of feeling puny I finally felt 'in gear' to get 'er done. So much to catch up on and do and more to add to the 'to-dos'. But, I tire more easily than I want so, I've been pacing myself and I could get discouraged so instead ... I have decided today to pause and congratulate myself for my 'ta-da' list.
I taught and had FUN with Sunday night's Bible class
I did all the laundry and put it away pretty much on schedule
I made our bed every day instead of having to return to it
I did my own shopping and cooking this week
I wrote and published a note for 2 of my blogs
I did crafts with the kiddos
I felt good about preparing for last night's small group
I have notes 'ready to go' for all 3 blogs and
I am going to work in the yard (health and weather are finally in agreement!)
Here's a picture of my very relaxed, but targeted, To-Do/Ta-Da agenda I made several years back. I make notes on what I've accomplished in the areas that matter to me at the 'end of the day'. I tried keeping up with 'itemized' year agendas and never did too well and sometimes just ended up feeling guilty.
It's so liberating as a woman - a wife and mom - to just decide to be happy with what was accomplished rather than bemoaning all that wasn't done or still needs to be done.

|the pink one (I use purple ink) is my 'dream journal'|
Are you a 'liberated' woman? It's up to you, y'know, just let-go of the guilt for what might've, could've, should've gotten done and concentrate on all you did.
