As I thought about my past few years of being a homemaker, I have one problem that tends to pop up the most. I wait.
I wait to clean the boys room until I feel like.
I wait to do a project until I know I have several free hours to complete it.
I wait till things can be done perfectly.
Call it procrastination, perfectionism, or sometimes just plain lazy. It’s not hard to imagine that I wasn’t getting that much done. Don’t get me wrong, I would get the basic things done, homeschool, dinner (uh, mostly), and a *somewhat* clean home. But that’s not what I really want. I want fun days of not only getting the basics of education done, but lots of craft projects, or imaginative times of reading stories too. I want to make not only dinner, but healthy snacks and better breakfasts. I want a clean, organized home, that anyone can step into and feel welcomed in at any given time. I have big projects that I dream of getting too. I want more.
I can’t wait for the magical ingredients to fall into place. I’m just gonna have to do it.
Enters in my motto for 2013: Just Do It
Don’t think about it too much. Don’t wait.
Even if it can’t be done perfectly. Just Do It
Even if I can’t complete the whole project in one siting. Just Do It
Even if I don’t feel like it. Just Do It
In 2013 I just want to get things done.
