I’ve made no bones about mentioning just how much I am not domestic. . . I loathe damn near everything that involves keeping up a house. I’d just rather not. Tedious, mundane, thankless work it is. . . You only notice it when it isn’t getting done — which is a lot of the time around my house.

I can't stand ANY of them, but there's one that's worse than the rest. (image from morgueFile.com)

On Purpose

Welcome to another week of “On Purpose.” If you’re curious about the thought behind this series, click here for its introductory post.

I am detecting a theme here lately. . . I am falling short of my goals. On one hand, I want to be more strict with myself so that I actually accomplish these things. (That is the whole point of this, right?!) On the other hand, I want to celebrate the successes I have so that I am not so hard on myself that I stagnate & quit making any kind of progress. . .

I won’t lie. It’s been a rough week for me. I don’t know why. I don’t know if I am fighting a cold or if it’s just allergies or what. Tension headaches & tiredness galore, though! Dear Lord. 😦 With that said, though, I did pretty well with last week’s three goals. . . The mountain of laundry, I have seriously procrastinated on. To be honest, as I sit here writing, it is Thursday evening & I intend to get my tush up out of this seat as soon as this post is complete & get that laundry folded! I am counting it as a win, but be sure to call me out in the comments to make sure I actually did it! 😉

On Purpose

I’ve come to the realization that the weeks when I accomplish everything I mean to accomplish will be few & far between. While, it takes much mental convincing on my part to try to accept this, I’ve decided that is exactly what I must do. As I hinted towards last week, progress is better than stagnation. . . &, frankly, setting goals seems to ensure some kind of progress, particularly when shared with others.
