have so much to do -- that I don't know where to start because of my
"exhaustive" feelings. BUT I have decided to take three tasks a day, put
them into priority order -- one for morning, one for afternoon, and one for
evening -- with nice breaks in between -- THEN when I was sitting on my
couch reflecting on how good it felt when I had my focus, I also cleaned out
the end-table drawer as an extra. ! LOL!!! Break it up in to small tasks works
best for me and I hope someone else benefits from my post too -- it's doable
-- baby steps -- even if just ONE task a day for the 365 days -- as already
expressed on this page -- and it truly can make you feel so accomplished!!!
Thank you so much for this fb page. (Takes sip of coffee and smiles)

I learn things from the wonderful
ladies that comment on my Facebook
Page, Chronic Fatigue and Creative
Decluttering. Moreover, I find that I
am encouraged to keep on writing
and to clean my own house -- even
when I don't feel like it.
Changing from being a get the
house clean in one or two days person to a
woman, who can only get it done in small units of time, is a huge change. It
is easy to feel guilty, when you are sitting in your recliner with your feet up
or waking up at 2 p.m., because you had to lie down.
Say good-bye to that negative voice that questions you about what you
cannot get done. Instead, think of the things you can do,
and do one thing at a time. If a job is too big, divide it into
Since last week, that is how I have been cleaning my dining room. I thought
I would get it done in a couple of days, but my energy has been lower than
usual. However, I knew baby steps would get me there.
Something nice happened yesterday. My husband said, "I guess I will have
to stop piling mail on the table." What a blessing when your family notices
progress. And, because, I have been decluttering so many things, I had the
perfect sized empty basket for him to put mail in. It is on a chair by the door.
I don't know if I will ever have much energy again, even though I do hope,
but I know I can have a clutter-free house. All I have to do is take baby
steps, and I will get there.
You can do it too.
