This is Day 1 of the Feel Good Blogging Challenge! So happy to be here and to tell you all about me! You can learn a lot about me from my about page, but I think there is so much more that I can tell you that I didn’t cover in my about. I have many hobbies and roles that I play in life, and I want to give you a glimpse into some of those things. But most days there just aren’t enough hours in the day to finish all we set out to accomplish! I know you sometimes feel exactly the same way! You look at the clock and think about all the many things that you didn’t get accomplished today and then have to prioritize all the things you must accomplish before bed, knowing that there will still be so much to do tomorrow. It is so easy to get lost in the hustle of life.
See I’m that girl that always creates the impossible to do list. I wake up on a personal day and think todays the day I cross it all off. And I’ll write down 20 things- write 3 blogs, edit personal pictures, finally fix those curtains, do all the laundry, change the sheets, cook dinner, put pictures in those three frames, have hubby hang those frames, make a healthy lunch, do the filing, run, put away the laundry, and the dishes, put together a social media plan, water the plants, reorganize our pictures, play with the dog, ect. I think to myself if I write it all down, I’ll feel better when I get to cross it off! But inevitably, I’ll get on a bunny trail, I’ll start with the filing and realize I should really reorganize it, I sit down to blog and then end up cruising Pinterest, then finally get going and realize I’m starving and grab a bag of chips. Sydney will bring me her ball and I’ll go outside to play and realize the weeds need to be picked and start doing that. And before I know it the whole day is gone and I’ve accomplished maybe 2 things off of my very long list. Some days just go like that.
And I have to give my wonderful husband credit, he is so helpful around the house and helping me complete chores, because for whatever reason I’m the multitasker that can never finish the first thing I set out to do. But occasionally I’ll get in a mood and have a wild hair to do something crazy, like freezer cooking, and I’ll make 15 dinners in one day, or cleaning and I’ll clean the house from top to bottom including the baseboards, or rearranging all the furniture because I can. Who knows why we do the crazy things we do right?
But among my super long to do lists and all the many commitments and things that I want to do, it’s easy to forget life is not just one long to do list. Some days its fine to take that extra stroll around the block when you should be reorganizing, or leave the laundry till tomorrow and go grab Yogurtland instead. Because without the little things in life, spitting out hot soup because your snort laughing at dinner, riding your bike while rocking out to your favorite song, dancing in Target with your best friend. You know those moments that all the people around you may roll their eyes or think your crazy, but you know this is a moment that you will remember because its spontaneous and it’s the reason you struggle through your long to do list, is for moments like this. So today, give yourself permission, put down the to do list, skip dinner and go get some Yogurtland, that’s what I’m going to do. And when you want pictures with those people that get you through all the have to’s in your life, give me a call. I’d love to capture your uniquely crazy spontaneous moments.
