It’s just the beginning of me changing my life and I am failing again. But this time I am also ok with that. The last couple of weeks included a lot of appointments and some admin work to get my son settled with his therapies. So when I said last time that my home is an unorganised disaster, now it is just one big mess. But we will deal with that also. Especially since only two nights left and I am going to have one once-a-week proper sleep night instead of going to work and trying to live on 3 or 4 hours of sleep and hectolitres of coffee. And I know that the way I am living now isn’t healthy at all, but on the other hand, I don’t have much choice at the moment. This should be another reason why I want to start earning from home. But this is still a long way to go, so let’s focus on the present.
As I did close to nothing regarding deep cleaning and organising our space, my priorities had to change. My goal for this weekend and the following week will be to simply clean it, so we don’t live in piles of dust (fortunately just one week of dust), that our floors are clean and nice to walk on barefoot and so on. And it is not gross (yet!), it’s just that we haven’t spent much time in our place recently. The weather was (and still is) amazing, so we try to spend as much time as we can outdoors. Even most of the admin jobs I mentioned before, have been done from my garden. Ok, but let’s move on to our cleaning.
My new plan, after cleaning, is to first: sort out all clothes as I said before, get rid of the ones we don’t use anymore and keep the ones we are using organised in the wardrobes. After that, I am going to go room by room, as much as time will allow me and throw out everything from all cupboards, drawers, etc. Clean them in and out, sweep and mop the floors under them and reorganise everything in them. Hopefully, by the end of August, I will manage to do so. Just bit by bit, without any stress, just to get all things done.
Due to the same circumstances, my YouTube channel has been on hold also. I haven’t prepared even one video. But as with all situations with my son’s paperwork has been sorted, I am planning to get a video done by tomorrow evening, we’ll see how it will go. And going forward, keep making three videos a week, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Regarding this blog, I hope to manage writing one post a day, as it was planned. For some time there will be mostly updates on the progress of my goals, but I am planning to add some new categories (or series? however they are called). At the moment I am thinking about writing about things I’ve learnt about self-development, maybe reviews or summaries of self-development books? We’ll see how it goes when my place will be a bit more sorted and hopefully, I will get some time freed.
But for today’s post, it’s all I wanted to share. I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading it and my sharing my struggles and attempts to overcome them will motivate at least one person to do the same. But for now, I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.
