Dear Pioneer Woman
4 hours ago
It was really hard to get started again this Monday. I admit, I got a teensy bit behind.
I attribute it to being out of town this weekend. So I didn't get to clean on Saturday, then I was directed by Sarah Mae to take Sunday off. Which I mostly did, except for some laundry that absolutely had to get through the washer.
But then Monday came, I looked around my domain, and thought "Ugh. I don't want to sift through this mess. Maybe I pooped out at one week. Maybe I can't keep up the self discipline. Maybe I should give up."
But then a friend called and said "Can we come over and play today?" and suddenly my motivation received the kick in the butt it needed. (Thank you, God for knowing what I need and when.)
"Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~Diana Scharf Hunt"
Yes! That's it! Deadlines. All of the things that this book ("31 Days to Clean: Having a Martha House the Mary Way" if you're just joining me or you've forgotten) tells me to do are things I am already doing. The key for me is that I have to do them every day. She encourages me to confront my laziness now and take it to God, because:
“How soon ‘not now’ becomes ‘never’.” ~Martin Luther
So may I encourage you likewise.
Put off this: (or whatever your guilty pleasure is...)
And get crackin'!
We can DO it!
