I have written in my diary once. I guess I should make more time for it. I am going to count blogging as one entry. Done!
I forgot my mantra. I had to look at my previous entry. Usually my mantra is praying to Jesus to give me strength to make it through something rough, whether it is a day full of seemingly endless annoyances or a truly soul-shaking time. Jesus take the wheel! My official mantra.
I did, however, make my bed every day. I was already in the habit of making my bed. Not one time did I do the hospital corners, but every bed in the house did get made. I just can't with the hospital corners. I don't know why. Maybe in time.
Now onto week 2!!
Week 2 seems to be a cleansing week. You are supposed to rid your wardrobe of any unflattering clothing, rid your mind of guilty and negative feelings, and stop comparing yourself to others. Learning to say no when you need to and ridding your diet of any food that weighs you down. Literally.
I have been working on all that. It does help me feel better. Comparing myself to others doesn't make me a better person. No two families are the same so there is no sense in trying to be like anybody else. You're better off to focus less on what other families do/have, and focus more on what your family needs to be positive, healthy, and happy. Same for your clothing and diet: it's better to wear something that flatters your body and makes you feel good. It's better to eat something that is good for you because you will feel better and healthier in the long run.
It isn't going to be every day that I preform perfectly, but as long as I can say I gave an honest effort, it's progress.
