Burn Your To-Do List!

When I first became a Mama, I was a list-maker. I have always been a very detailed list maker, accounting for EVERY SINGLE thing I felt I had to do. I mean everything….. It must have had enough tasks for 5 people to do in a week, but it was mine, all mine.

This changed about a year or so ago.
I was at a breaking point.
I could not do it all. 
There was never enough time.
I never finished the list.
It just grew and grew and grew.
Not only was I keeping track of myself, my hubs, my house, my biz, my dogs, my van.  
I now had 3 little humans to care for, that easily tripled my list!

Not only did I carry around this massive list, I carried around stress with me most of the time. Pretty much all the time.

Then one day, listening to some video of Leonie Dawson talk about something inspiring and magical I am sure, she talked about MIT’s. Most Important Tasks.
It really clicked with me that there was a better way to live.

In the morning as I sip coffee, I decide on my 3 MIT’s for the day. Yup, that’s right. Three!!!

These three things are absolutely essential to the day. As other things come up, I write them in my planner as to when realistically looks like a day and time I can actually get them done.

I feel like for a “recovering list-maker,” I finally rose up to a higher vibration. A calmer, less stressed, realistically organized Mama who not only realized that MIT’s can be things like “Do the girls laundry,” but can also be things of joy and that make me smile.

Now you may find on my MIT’s things like:

Sit down by the river behind my house for 15 minutes
Hula hoop
Sit in the sun for 15 minutes in silence
Soak in the tub in my beautiful oils
Listen to Phish for 10 minutes and dance

 

It’s nice right? Yeah so I need a reminder to do things everyday. At least they are 3 things it takes to make me feel complete and accomplished as I lay my head on my pillow each night.

One of today’s MIT’s was to enjoy a glass of Rose after work on our deck.

Mission accomplished.

    Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Many thanks!

    This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
