It’s happening. You know what I am referring to. The weather…it’s warmer. The sun.. it’s shinier. (don’t judge me, that’s totally a real word)
It’s SPRING, and I love it! Today was absolutely beautiful… the temperature got up to about 80 degrees, so I was able to open windows and leave the back door open to air out the casa. Ahhhhh. So refreshinnngggg.
So I have this problem, one that arises about the same time every year. When the weather is nice, and the days are longer, I get this overwhelming feeling of self-motivation. You may be thinking, “sheesh, who is this girl and why does she consider self-motivation a problem?” Good question. Let me explain.
Every year, about this time, I get this feeling that I can literally move mountains. Yes, you read that correctly. Move. Mountains. And within these feelings of unconstrained motivation, I usually create these lists of “Things I am going to do!” Again, you probably don’t understand why this is a bad thing…. so let me continue. I created my list today, of “Things I am going to do!” and there are about 57 things on my list.
Yes, you read that correctly. Fifty. Seven. Things. That is one rather large to-do list. Maybe even a bit overwhelming. But if there is one thing I do love, it’s a good checklist. What is it about putting your goals on paper that make them that much more executable? Now, will I get all 57 things done this weekend? Absolutely not. But will my motivation continue? Let’s pray that it does.
First issue with this list? The simple fact that I devoted almost my entire Saturday to creating it. Seriously, this list is detailed. Mind you, I alsooooo started some spring cleaning, but this list has already began taking up 97% of my time. Probably not the best start.
With the contribution of Pinterest, I am very confident that this list is achievable…as most of the items on this list are items that pertain to our home. Organize this, Paint that, Move this, Hang that, etc. And with the progress Boyfriend and I have alreadyyyy made on the house, I am EXTREMELY confident in our abilities so show this list who is boss.
So stay with me here… and be patient. I’m working on it and will keep record of everyyything on this lil’ baby. (PS “blog more” is number 43 on my list….CHECK!)
Have some suggestions on what else I should add to my list? Holla at me!
