I am feeling a little better today…allbeit with the help of some well timed arrivals of internet purchases.
I have a bit of a plan for decorating now that the renovations are ever so close to being complete and when I saw this Duvet cover on Ezibuy the other day I just knew that it needed to come and live with me. I have never bought anything off Ezibuy before and I am really impressed. The quality is amazing! I actually bought the little black pillow, the duvet cover, the European pillow cases and a very luxurious feeling black throw for $200 which I think is a bit of a bargain! It has made me be able to see that my decorating plan will come together – eventually – I just need to stick to the plan.
Speaking of plans….I made a plan to get myself to the point of feeling happy about the degree of balance in my life. The plan does involve a little bit of sacrifice but there is also a reward 🙂
So I am going to focus on getting the Certificate IV in Training and Administration done so that is completely off my plate and I don’t have to think about it at all any more. I am going to commit myself to seeing out the rest of this year with the in person volunteer work that I do – after that it will only be background things that don’t need me to be outside the house going to meetings etc.
Getting just those two things off my back *should* free up enough time for me to be able to go to work, come home and spend time with the family in the evening without thinking about all the rest of the things that I need to do for other people as well. Then I should be able to comfortably read a book or do my crafty projects without this same guilt that I should be doing something else because I have so much that I need to get done!
Perhaps I should do a project here on my blog to document how 6 months of saying No would go for me?
So my reward?
BEcause what is in this little box are much desired craft tools for a little project that I am dying to get my paws into. But not until I have finished that Certificate IV.
Noting like a little bit of motivation!
