Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. It is that time of year for resolutions. I have been asking myself what I want to accomplish in 2023. What is important to me? Creating routines, writing, exercising, and creating more content for my social media are on top of my list.

MY SEVEN 2023’s GOALS:

Creating Routines – to help me stay focused on what is a priority and allow me to achieve my other goals by getting my household chores done. Organizing my home to create an inviting and relaxing environment for me and my family.

To schedule time for my writing during the day – 2022 has taught me, that I need to set time aside, during the day for my writing projects and articles. This was an eye-opening revelation for me. If I want to write, I need to make time for my writing.

Exercising – 2022 has also taught me, if I want to keep my mobility and maintain a healthy weight, I must exercise. Whether I like it or not, I must exercise. To be honest, I’m unsure how this will be incorporated into my routines. I’m determined to discover the way.

Keeping my relationship with the Lord healthy – I need to nourish my spiritual life. I must put the Lord first and spend time with Him by reading His Word and praying.

Creating music – composing music is my happy place where my mind can unwind and relax. I need to spend more time working on my compositions.

Reading – I fell short of my goal for 2022. To be honest, I know I can do better.

To create more content for my social media platforms – not sure how I’m going to accomplish this goal. Working on a plan, I’m determined to come up with an idea.

What are your goals for 2023? Please let me know, in the comment section.

My goal is to enjoy Christmas and not get stressed out from the chaos of clutter. That is my plan.

Christmas Chaos…

My goal is to enjoy Christmas and not get stressed out from the chaos of clutter. That is my plan.

Christmas chaos is all the stress from extra activities that can produce chaos. Falling behind in routines and having clutter to build very quickly in hot zones, this time of year that can be overwhelming.

This time of year there are a lot more activities, like people getting together, holiday parties, and other events I find that create Christmas chaos. For me, it’s procrastinating on chores I need to get done to keep my home clean and organized.

This year I’m trying something new, I am prioritizing the kitchen by keeping it clean and free of clutter to the best of my ability. So I’m making sure the hot zones like the kitchen table don’t have massive clutter buildup of junk mail and bills. And the other items that need to be put back in their designated place.

My task on my list is keeping up with the dishes. I don’t want a huge pile of dirty dishes on Christmas Eve to wash. So it is my main priority this week is to keep my dirty dishes from piling up.

What are you doing to avoid the Christmas Chaos this year?

I would love to hear your thoughts, so leave a comment below,

Merry Christmas!

Over the last couple of weeks, my body has been through a lot, and my joints are hurting, it is more like background pain. I am counting down the days until I get my infusion next week. In the meantime, I have been editing my manuscript, and short story, and working on my organization skills.

But I am at the point where I’m forcing myself to do things like housework, and editing because I just don’t feel well. This is what life is like living with a chronic illness.

April 12, 2022

In the most recent episode of my podcast, I will be discussing ADD and cleaning, what happened at my last infusion appointment, and my manuscript.
