i chose a planner – i’m going with day designer for this year.
this week is all about getting organized and on my schedule – back to eating breakfast, exerc
ising, going to bed on time and all that jazz
the good news is i have more clear surfaces in my house and i can walk through my bedroom without tripping. i still have the rv to unpack. also, this cleaning with a toddler — why do we bother? she dumps it out in a blink —
thinking about boundaries this week – personal and business – what does that look like – how do i put it into action – what do i see longer term – how does it feel. lots of good questions
loved this little interview on the day designer blog – my favorite is how she talked about her daily schedule and getting her “chores” done in the mornign before opening her computer — click here for some inspiration: http://daydesigner.com/well-designed-life-series-ashley-brooke-designs/
this is so true. i hate that it is as i can be fairly awful at honoring my schedule and plan — a big one i’m working on right now.
also. a compilation of thoughts on different kinds of boundaries. we are reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene’ Brown for book club this month — i finally started it last night — one chapter in and in love:
“one of the greatest (and least discussed) barriers to compassion practice is the fear of setting boundaries and holding people accountable…compassionate people are boundaried people…the heart of compassion is really acceptance. the better we are at accepting ourselves and others, the more compassionate we become. well, it’s difficult to accept people when they are hurting us or walking all over us. this research has taught me that if we really want to practice compassion, we have to start by setting boundaries and holding people accountable for their behavior… when we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel used and mistreated…it’s also impossible to practice compassion from a place of resentment. if we’re going to practice acceptance and compassion, we need boundaries and accountability.” The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene’ Brown – pg. 16-19
some good stuff to ponder as i work on intentionally practicing courage, compassion, and connection in my daily life.
check back tomorrow for a great ted talk by Brene’
