Baby Steps

Fly lady teaches baby steps for a clean house.  I don't know why I didn't think to apply those steps to other parts of my life.

I have some health issues.  Chronic headaches are just one of them.  The constant discomfort leads to frustration and depression.  The depression leads to more pain.  It is a cycle that is hard to break.

I have tried going full speed ahead.  "I am going to beat this." And I crash and burn. Done it several times.  Full speed crash.

I am trying a different approach this time. A schedule with plenty of rest.  Baby steps with little fly missions.

One baby step at a time.

A morning walk with the puppies.  School work with the kids.  A few steps on my most recent project and dinner for dragon.

Baby steps.

Writing it down intimidates me a little but as long as I move and alternate with rest I can do this.

No more full speed ahead.  It didn't work but I know this will.

PS.  This week I am adding a home blessing hour.  With 4 of us home every day, that is 15 minutes of moving fast to get an area clean.  No perfect but good enough.  Perfection is a disease I am trying to cure.


  1. I am sure this plan will work for you Rose...sending lots of prayers and positive energy.

    Hugs and Blessings...
