Take The Next Step


Ever feel like the world is against you and you don't know if you have the strength to go on?  I love the above description of daily decision making.  There are days I just want to stay at the bottom and never take the next step.  But I am a mom, and as such, I have to take the next step, even if it is begrudgingly.  Eventually I reach the top, and you know what?  More times than not, it feels great to say "Yes, I did it!"

Take laundry for example (or dishes if that is more your style).  You wake up in the morning, look at your drawers/closet and think "Oh rats!  I have nothing to wear! (or eat off of) then you look in the laundry hamper (or sink) and think "Oh rats!  I forgot to start that batch of laundry (or dishes) last night!  Now I can't wear my favorite (clothes item here) or now I can't eat til I wash that (dish item here)!"

Never fear, if you just buckle down and climb the next step, you will conquer that mountain of dishes or laundry!  I know you will cuz I do it on a daily basis!  When you are done you get an amazing sense of satisfaction and the feeling of "yes, I did it!" is just too great to pass up!  And just think, you will have a dirty dish or dirty laundry free home for the next 12 minutes!  

Go ahead, take the next step!
