Looking at the bright sidePosted: April 26, 2011
And here is one more where it sort of looks like our house is at the end of the rainbow:
I was talking to my friend and fellow blogger, Kimberly today about how things keep getting in the way of my decluttering progress.
Today I spent a huge chunk of time dealing with a pharmacy, a health insurance company, a dental insurance company, an HR dept., and a dental office. (I’m sure some of you are cringing with me.) Most of this was over the phone during my prime time for getting things done: nap time. It wasn’t what I wanted to do, but it had to get done and figured out.
There might have been a touch of discouragement and complaining. Maybe a hint of it.
Well, my wise friend said something like, “Well I think that’s great! Look at all the stuff you got done!” She totally turned around my perspective! I had been looking at it as wasted time, but really I was actually being productive and getting things done!
And then instead of feeling discouraged, I felt encouraged and motivated to get more things done! Sweet!
And if you are wondering about my paper sorting progress…there’s progress…stay tuned.
How are you finding the bright side in things lately?
