More effective a mess than all cleaned up...

You know why that statement is true for me and many others? Becasue everything in life is never it's cleanest. I'm talking in general but it can be broken down into different catagories... It could mean litterally having a clean house. How many of you, like me, want to take on a new task. Such as putting up the Christmas tree. You know what goes through my mind. Well I have to get the whole house spotless before dragging out all those boxes. Are you like that too or am I really alone? Do you have any idea how long it would take me to get the whole house clean and keep it that way? No remember I have a husband, three small children and a dog.

I am the Queen of Procrastination. In some weird, strange way it motivates me. LOL


I have learned...Everything is never going to be perfect or cleaned up... So my little contributions here and there are a lot more effective than no contributions at all. Don't hold yourself back. Jump right in both feet and look back later when you have accomplished what ever it is you are seeking. And if in anyway this feeling of mine, that I so openly shared with any of the world who joined to listen, inspired you to live and let go I would so love to hear your story and how it turned out. Post a comment and share with me...DIG IN...

I always said that when I had kids that I was going to keep my house clean. You said, "Do you think your kids are going to remember a clean house or are they going to remember you playing with them and spending time with them?" Well, you were right I would rather play with G than worry about keeping my house spotless.
Therefore, my tree is up in a not so spotless house!! But it is up and G loves it!!!!
