The current state of my desk is messy, to say the very least. I probably should be cleaning it off and checking off more things from the never-ending scattered To-Do list, but I decided to write for a few minutes instead.
Here is my desk right now, at this very moment. 10:45pm CST
Sorry for the blurry cell phone picture, at night time with horrid lighting!
See, I told you MESSY! A random assortment of things honestly, that end of up piling up on my desk. It is a wonder I get anything done at all! HA! I pride myself on being organized, but I also guess I have to admit that I can be a bit messy. I need to take a few minutes and just deal with the mess. File, recycle, and shred papers, compile to-do lists, put things away in their proper place, etc. I need to take 15 minutes.
Earlier this evening I took the few extra minutes to sweep and swiffer our kitchen floor. It was grungy and I do not enjoy cleaning the floor, but tonight the grunge factor took over and I decided to just deal with the mess. Of course I felt better after it was over, well worth the few minutes.
Earlier today I finally wrote out the invitations to Cason’s family birthday party that is this Sunday. Yep, the party is this Sunday and I am just now getting invitations in the mail. For some reason I have put this task off and have not wanted to get it done. But today when I sat down and spent less than 15 minutes getting it done, I thought to myself….”why did you put that off…that took no time to take care of!” I should have done that last week and been done with that small task! It is amazing what a small item on your to-do list that is looming over you can become bigger and more difficult to tackle in your mind. Though a bit late in sending them, the invitations are officially in the mail. I am going to quit beating myself up over the fact that I should have already sent the invitations out and move on! It did feel good to check that task off the to-do list today. Next I have the invitations to Cason’s other birthday party the following weekend. My goal is to be in the mail by Thursday.
Ok, I digressed, sorry! So before this desk gets any messier, I am off to take 15 minutes and just deal with my mess of a desk. I encourage you to take 15 minutes and deal with something that has been looming on your to-do list or just needs to get done! I promise you will feel better after!
Hope your week is off to a great start! Take 15 minutes and tell me what you did in the Comments section below!
