Taking a step back

Hey there!

We’ve all had our days when we are on the right path and feeling the thrill when we cross off things on our to-do list. Especially when it feels like such a commitment, it still feels awesome to check it off.

Today, I am taking a step back from the following to do list:

  • Reading in the evening
  • Washing my face (so bad, I know!)
  • Picking out my outfit for tomorrow (ugh!)
  • Washing dishes (the worse one yet!)

It may sound petty and as some people would call it #firstworldproblems but this seriously affected me!

I didn’t read this evening because I was trolling on instagram and Pinterest on silly things when I could be feeding my brain with my most recent self-help book as opposed to figuring out how I am going to make zucchini and sweet potato fries. Sigh.

On the plus, I did read this morning. It still doesn’t change the fact that I missed my evening read train!

I didn’t wash my face because I didn’t feel like it. The worse part: today is apparently a blue moon for me because I ended up putting on foundation this morning, which I very seldom do and the one evening my face needs washing the most is the one evening I don’t do it. It’s like I’m asking for zits to please pop into my face!

Picking out an outfit for tomorrow is something I do almost every evening before bed. I can literally get up right now, set my blog posting down and pick out an outfit. I chose not to because I’m lazy and I’ve already done the trifecta of things I do daily, so what’s the point right? I did manage to pick out my son’s clothes for tomorrow, as always.

The good news (if I want to look at it in a positive way) is that I own less than 30 item of clothing. It will not be that stressful to pick out an outfit for tomorrow. It will take me less than five minutes.

Not doing the dishes is going to haunt me in my dreams tonight. A little bit of the dishes piled up today and it will take me no time at all to wash them and put them away, but today has been such a drag!

I’m not using the cold weather as an excuse. It’s just one of those days. People get them all the time. I am not even strict on my day to day schedule.

Another plus side: I did manage to work out, declutter a drawer and my closet (again).

Venting done!
