Weekly Writer's Workshop "Tomorrow I will do it differently, here's how..."

You can join in the fun as well. Thank you Mama's Losin' It

Tomorrow I will Do It Differently, Here's How:

I think that I have the best of intentions in life. I mean, I know what I need to do, I know what is expected of my in terms of my children, my husband and my household.

I laugh at household though. Because although I know what is expected of me, or what I expect of myself, I never, well hardly ever, follow thru.

It is not that I am lazy, because I am not. I think that I am just completely overwhelmed with the amount of things that need to be done and when they need to be done by. I say that "Today will be the day" and then before I know it half the day is gone and I have accomplished nadda.

That lack of accomplishment leads to me feeling like I am a failure. And that feeling of failure leads to me sinking into a depression. It is a vicious cycle. It is time to break that cycle.

So, Tomorrow I will Do It Differently and Here is How:

I will get up, get dressed (no wearing a ratty shirt and sweats) I will brush my hair, and put on some makeup. I will get dressed to my shoes.

I will make the bed so as not to tempt my lazy butt to crawl back in.

I will stop making excuses for things. I will just do.

I will remember that it did not get this way in one day nor will it get better in one day

I will celebrate my accomplishements, and forget my shortcomings

I will rid my house of the clutter because Clutter breeds Chaos

I will remember to do one thing just for me.

Tomorrow I will do it differently, because this way is no longer acceptable.

I want to be able to open my door at a moments notice and let someone in

I want to be able to relax at night and not look at the piles of clothing on the floor.

I want to be able to get a glass without having to dig to the bottom of a pile of dirty dishes.

Tomorrow I will do it differently!


  1. Thank you for writing my to do list for tomorrow :) I have the same problem. It's like I have very few Have To's in my life being a stay at home mom. No actually, like you said, I have far too many and no one to make me do them! I have three baskets of laundry in my room that need to be put away...for two days now...

  2. Wow, I think we have a few things in really is a vicious circle, isn't it? If you don't mind, I think I'll borrow a few of your ideas too. Good luck!

    Visiting from Mama Kat's!

  3. You go girl.....seriously I feel your pain....
    I had an uncle come over this week to fix my master bath plumbing....and something in my roof which is acessed from MY walk in can we say EMERGENCY cleaning? But serioulsy....I have been SO much more relaxed with my bedroom/closet in order....I'm actually thankful he 'forced' the clean-up. (not that HE cared...but I certainly couldn't have him KNOWING I'm a slob in MY bedroom!)

    anyhoo...thanks for sharing....visiting from Mama Kat's
