Every time in the last few weeks that something has happened not according to MY plan, I’ve been told by SOMEONE to use it as an opportunity to figure out what is most important to me.

I mean, I have a pretty good idea of what I hold most dear, but this is even more specific to me, what do I want to create in me, in my little world. Like the “at the end of my life what will matter most” kind of perspective.

Tonight I was thinking about that while Alex was splashing the day away in the bathtub.

He’s most important. At the end of my life I want him to look back at HIS life and know he was loved.

I look back on my life and the things I appreciate most are my grandma and her regular (see: seven, noon, and six like clockwork) meals at the table, homes that are more or less clean and tidy, and never having to fish out the least dirty pair of pants to wear to work.

So I have my focus – Alex needs a home, Alex needs meals, Alex needs clean clothes. Mommy gets to reap the benefits of a clean home, good meals and clean clothes. Alex also needs played like a puppy. Which the more I do that, the more I will benefit in lower numbers on the scale.

For October, these are the 4 ways I am focusing on getting my act together. There is so much more that needs to come, but these are my starts.

Let there be clean floors and let them begin with me. 🙂
