Here we are, knee-deep in the holiday slump.
You know what I’m talking about. That crazy running-around-with-your-head-cut-off feeling is gone. If you are like me, you are now fighting the crud that’s going around, which is dragging you down even further.
What do you do now?
This morning, I stare around my house blankly. I have been feeling less than subpar these last few days, and motivation is nowhere to be found. There is roughly one large box or one large garbage bag in every room – filled with the cast-offs of present-opening. There are stacks of presents and odds & ends scattered about.
What to do?
Believe it or not, I DO feel somewhat motivated – The dilemma is just HOW to make it happen.
The husband and I have already listed out our farmsteading goals for 2014 (more on that next week!) – But right now, I feel like another type of over-haul needs to take place.
It came to me last night, during one of my many tossing & turning spells:
My life has officially spun out of control – Simply put, I have been too damn busy lately. Was it the holiday rush? Maybe. But I have a feeling that life, in general, had just gotten too chaotic.
So today I will resist the urge to rest on the couch (although I really should be doing that, to get better) – and I will start making baby steps.
Starting with simplifying my house, I will de-clutter, tackling exactly ONE room today. After the house is simplified, my outside schedule will be scrutinized – I NEED my time with my family, now more than ever. From there, I will simplify my daily routine.
I am convinced – If I can simplify my daily life, I will improve my ability to reach my goals this year.
What about you? Do you feel the need to “purge” your life after the rush of the holidays, in preparation for the new year?
