The kitchen is clean and everyone is in bed except me. I just felt the urge to write. This afternoon as I was making dinner I couldn’t help but think about what I do every Sunday to get ready for the week ahead.
We fold laundry that needs folding. I try to tidy up the kitchen and make sure I take some time for myself.
Then as the night started to wind down, instead of feeling ready for the week, I felt stress. It seemed like there was so much I needed to get done before tomorrow. But then I realized something.
I don’t have yo do it all today.
I’m tired and ready for bed and the little bit of laundry that didn’t get put away can be put away tomorrow. I can finish my mini tidy up in the morning.
I feel like there is always going to be something to do, but I can’t do it all at once. I need to rest and take care of my body so that I can have a productive week.
I am ready for the week, just not in all the ways I had planned earlier. But that’s okay, because I’m not Wonder Woman, I’m only human! And now I’m ready for bed.
