A little routine and structure help me get through the day without completely losing my mind. I don’t know about you, but it drives me absolutely crazy when I can’t find something!
Dragging the kids into the car with all their gear and mine is a huge process. Somehow from the house to the car I misplace my keys, or my sunglasses, or the grocery list. What are the little things that help you get through the day? What things could you do that might help provide a little structure and routine?
At the end of a long day when I go to my bedroom to get ready for bed, there’s something calming about entering a room that is organized, clean, and uncluttered. It lifts my soul a little when I can go into that room at the end of the day, look around, and smile at how the room welcomes me. Unfortunately, this is not the case on most nights. Generally, there’s a path of clutter from the door to the bathroom and stuff covering the counter top, toothpaste on the faucet, and splotches on the mirror. In that case, I do what I need to do and get out ASAP trying not to really see the mess. My bedroom is my biggest challenge when it comes to cleaning. I’m sure you have your own challenge. In the end, a little structure feels good.
