Anti-Procrastination Tuesday Weekly Update


Weekly Update


I’m in a much better spot than last week, as I’ve worked hard to change my mindset and SLOW DOWN. I’ve also had pockets of time where I worked really hard in order to make time to just be still. I’ve also prayed a lot, decided to take the busyness of the season day by day, and let go of expectation, and WOW what a difference that makes. When I pray and release, things just seem to fall into place.

I have about 1/2 of my gifts ordered. None are wrapped, but I did clear our entire landing area, got rid of a ton of clutter and made myself a pretty little wrapping station. I’ve been procrastinating on this area and I have to walk through it to get to our bedroom. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have the clutter gone. It took 2 1/2 hours on Sunday, which really was not so bad. I hung up some fun lights in the windows and now it makes me so happy to walk through to our room. Why oh why do I procrastinate?

I have 2 closets and a laundry room left to declutter, then my focus will change from decluttering/minimalizing to cleaning/repairing. The 2 closets and laundry room will have to wait until after the holidays. In time! Haste makes waste, slow and steady wins the race!

I’ve also been busy getting to know my new best friend–my Instant Pot.{affiliate link} You can read all about the beginning of our love affair here  and see the 8 things I have made in it so far. Do you have the Instant Pot? Let me know how you like it in the comments. PS…does anyone else want to call it in Insta Pot? It is just much easier to say it that way!

Are you doing any Christmas Shopping on Amazon this year? If you click-through the above Amazon Prime ad, I will get a small percentage of anything you spend, no matter what it is, with no cost to you.
