21-Day Simplify Challenge: Days 8 & 9
Sorry about not posting yesterday – just had too much to do and too little day to do it in.
Day 8 was about simplifying your morning routine. Mine’s pretty simple:
- Straighten bed
- Check email
- Check in with London client
The problem comes when I am not feeling well. Unfortunately, the congestive heart failure seems to have left me with a somewhat lowered immunity, in addition to energy levels that vanish suddenly, often in the middle of doing something interesting. I am working on getting them back, but it is taking longer than I was hoping it would.
The photo is of my prayer beads, which are malachite. I wear them all the time, and use them each morning for meditation.
Day 9 is about Other People’s Stuff. I don’t have much trouble with that, since the roomie and I each tend to keep our messes in our own rooms. However, there are a few chores that I wish I didn’t have to ask her specifically to do each time they need to be done.
I don’t nag her, though. If I remember to ask her to do it, she will, and she does so much of the stuff I can’t do right now that it wouldn’t be right to nag her. So I am concentrating on my stuff this Challenge.
