What does it take to run a household or a life?
Why are there so many memes and jokes about "adulting?"
Aren't there things we all do every week or are we just wandering through life constantly trying to remember what it is we were supposed to do?
It's taken me years and tears, but I finally developed a few systems to decrease my overwhelm.
Here is my own personal list of weekly tasks. I don't do these every week, BUT having a list gives me somewhere to start.
I love a good checklist. Give me a task and I will try to complete it.
That said, the list above has some nuances and caveats that are worth mentioning to a novice attempting to "get my life together." I did not make that list overnight, AND some of the steps may or may not apply to you. So let's dig deeper!
I know that was a lot of words to describe what
sounds like it would be a simple process.
It's not simple though, is it? If it were simple, we would all be doing it
and no bill would ever be late, no appointment would ever be missed,
and no child would ever go to school without their $5 field trip money
that was due yesterday.
And so I wrote it all down.
I still miss things.
I don't do this every week, because LIFE.
Perfect is a cruel joke and not that fun anyway.
So just do what you can and maybe at least one of these tips will
bring you a little peace and a little more free time in the end
to do what you were called to do. ☀️
I posted this on Instagram in December 2018, so this shows I have been using a weekly review process for years. I like to follow authentic people and my readers might feel the same way. ☀️ Also, in my experience, I can't write or talk about what I don't know about. My 9-year-old though? He can tell the tallest tale you've ever heard! 😜
