Some days, though, I get into bed exhausted and wonder what I did that day. I mean, taking care of another human being is a pretty big deal, but still. I know I'm capable, but some days, I feel much less than.
Enter Tsh, blogger at simplemom.net and author of Organized Simplicity. I have a huge admiration for blogger mommies who are amazing writers. Tsh is that and so much more.
Tsh has taught me (and my small family):
1. To create a purpose statement. I'll share ours another day, but the more amazing thing than having it written down was the act of talking it out. We are pretty good communicators, but being so intentional was awesome for us.
2. To give myself achievable daily goals. I'm one to sit down in the morning and make a list of all that needs to be done... ever. And then, when I'm done with the ten million pages, I'm so worn out that I go eat chocolate and watch the Backyardigans. You think I'm kidding? I'm so serious.
Instead, smaller lists with more realistic goals are much more helpful...
This is my shameless push for reading this book. Do it.
