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!
