One Step at a Time

Monday I swept the house, around, under, corners – really really good.

Tuesday I cleaned and conditioned the leather furniture.

Wednesday I cobweb dusted the ceilings, walls, corners and baseboards. And also celebrated my first Christmas party at the Hunt Club.

Thursday I went to Frankenmuth with my mom and dad, enjoying the Bavarian Inn and the world famous Christmas store, Bronner’s.

Friday I washed and polished windows and mirrors – a job I used to dread because no matter what I always had streaks – but have you heard of Norwex? I’m trying to switch over to non-toxic green cleaners and they are a newer company with embedded silver and natural cleaning products that WORK! I took a wet paper towel and swiped over the dirt and bug spots, then took a blue Norwex cleaning cloth and wiped off the dampness and then used the purple window cloth and just wiped the surface. No streaks, no elbow grease, super fast and super sparkling clean windows – amazing enough to want to share!

Today I’ll oil and polish the wood furniture and tomorrow, on the Pink Sunday of Advent, the Christmas Tree goes up!  Hurray!

I’ve got a plan, I’m experiencing the little joy’s of the season, taking things one step at a time, not feeling overwhelmed or overburdened, each extra cleaning task is only an hour or less a day and can be done in 15 minute breaks if that’s what I need to do.  It’s like I’m being a friend to myself and jumping up and high-fiving the me at the end of the day – “you go girl – you did it!”

Now one secret, shush – there is a little rebellious “me” inside too … it’s a little tantrum when it’s time to do that “one thing” for the day … “I don’t want to” the little girl inside wails … but I simply go to the next step – get out the supplies I need, say to myself, do it and get it over with … you know, a kind of pep talk. And once I get going, I know it will get done soon and the rebellious little tantrum stops and the focused worker girl kicks in.

So my advice if you tend to procrastinate and wait until the last minute … don’t. Be kind to the you in the future that has to pick up the pieces that procrastination litters on your path. Love yourself enough to work through the little tantrums and just start – one step at a time!

Release Fear Method

Release Fear Method

FREE Release Limiting Fears CALL
When: June 17, 2014 @ 7-8pm ET
Call-in info below.

When is the last time you accomplished something important and meaningful and then allowed yourself to feel the satisfaction?

– Or is that accomplishment not good enough
– Or does your mind race on to the next task
– Or maybe you even put off starting

Procrastination, perfectionism and overwhelm can get in the way of living your dreams.

You’re not alone.

Limiting fears can show up in many ways and the Release Fear Method can help.

Join me on Tuesday for this *Tele-seminar to learn more about limiting fears and how to release them so you can live your dreams with passion and purpose.

Conference Dial-In Number: (559) 726-1300
Participant Access Code: 623144#

(Long distance fees may apply if you use a regular phone, the call-in number is NOT toll free… so please keep that in mind.)

*What is a tele-seminar?
A tele-seminar is an informational talk given over the phone. It is educational and experiential (you may have an exercise to complete – similar to a guided imagery or short meditation). The goal of the talk is to offer a way to live the serenity prayer (accept that which I cannot change, courage to change what I can and wisdom to know the difference.) Fears can be very private and audience participation (being asked to talk) is minimal and voluntary and mostly anonymous – I may ask people at the beginning to share their first name and the state they are calling from for example and I may ask everyone to set an intention of one thing they would like to take away from the talk and at the end ask if anyone would like to share their “one thing”.
