It’s not true.
When we are the happiest is when we are doing all we are capable of.
Oh, you might think I’m full of it, but look around the next few days. Notice the women that seem happier.
You’ll find that the women who do less are always the ones complaining that they are so tired and so unhappy.
The women who do it all are happier, confident, and full of energy.
I know, it defies all logic. It doesn’t make sense. But its true.
Could it be that living in a clean house makes you happier?
That having a healthy body feels better?
That pushing yourself to be your best is invigorating?
Could it be about loving yourself and all of your abilities?
Could it be that giving your life your all makes life worthwhile?
Could it be that living your life makes you feel more alive?
Could it be that providing your family with a clean comfortable home and great homecooked meals is the ultimate way to show love?
Oh, but you say – “I have a job. I’m too tired to do anything when I get home.”
Or here’s one I hear all the time – “So and so won’t help do anything and its not fair.”
It’s so easy to fall into that way of thinking. The problem is, when you look around at all the things left undone, you start to beat yourself up. At that point, things may have gone undone long enough that it is now overwhelming.
The other strange truth is, the women who do it all have more free time to spend with family and friends and do the things they want to do.
How can that be?
They keep up. A few minutes here and there. When they use something, they put it way.
When there’s a spill, they wipe it up while its still easy.
When they do laundry, they do it all the way through – folded and put away.
They have a plan for dinner before they leave for work.
They don’t let things pile up.They know that putting things off only means more work later.
Its just a series of minute by minute decisions that save hours in the long run.
They work smarter – not harder.
Yes, its easy to put things off. But its horrible living with the consequences. Get in the habit of doing it now and see how much easier and more fulfilling your life is.
