    Default Just for today I..........

    Sometimes things I want to do or changes that I want to make just seem too overwhelming. I realized that I was looking at these in a way that made choosing to do them an impossibility. So here's my plan.........

    I know that I can do something just for today, one day, only one day. Instead of making sweeping changes, I am going for one day, today. After that, who knows? But for one day, I can do anything - and so can you!!

    Just for today, Friday May 14th, I am not going to eat anything after 8PM.

    Care to join me?

    Absolutely joining you! This has been one of my goals for a very long time now. To simply live for today. I'm not always good at it, but ya know what? When I stay focused, I've learned that even the simplest of tasks, turns into a cherished part of my day. I actually take the time to enjoy the moment, instead of the usual rushing thru it so I can just to get it over with. If I told you that even something like hanging laundry, can actually make me feel relaxed, would you believe me? Well, I'm truthfully telling you, when I do the "one day at a time" thing, it really does. I'll usually get lost in my thoughts that tend to run deeper, and the fact that I have a husband and family to do laundry for becomes my focus. It puts a totally different perspective on even the most menial of tasks. I know, I know, I sound corny, but my life is better for it. So....

    Just for today, Saturday, May 15th, I'm going to shine my kitchen window, and take the time to be grateful for my home.

    Thanks MM! I like your idea here. It was a great reminder.

    Great idea Mamamia!!

    It's 7:30PM and I am done eating for tonight. Makes it simple, knowing that I made the decision to be done - relieves me of the pressure of .....do I or don"t I eat anything else.

    For tomorrow I am going put all the clothes away that are hanging on a rod between our bedroom and the master bath - and I'm not going to hang anything there - just for today!!

    Hmmm....Just for today I will make a dent in the bedroom. Nothing big, just strip bed and remake with clean linens.

    what a great thing to do Polly!! Great choice!!

    I made our bed this morning and while I have been doing paperwork...I am going to take a break from that and take down all the clothes hanging on that rod. Yup - I know that the bedroom will feel more spacious and clean.

    That's a good one LB!!

    All of the clothing is off the rod - found a lot that needs to be packed away - winter clothing - and the rest I am putting into my small closet.

    There are a few things that are going into the yard sale box.

    The only thing going back up is the outfit that I am going to wear tomorrow!!
