1. Message of the Day

MAKING BEDS

CONTINUE TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS - Sometimes we think of the bed as rumpled bed clothes that need to be straightened just because it is the custom in our country to do it. We think of it as a nuisance job that will only need to be redone the next day.

Instead think of it as the largest and potentially most beautiful piece of furniture in the house. Design your bed so that it is worth making up. Do you need a new spread or more pillows?

Obtain whatever inspires you to the point that your bed will cast a happy glow over your house. Viewed properly, making the bed can become a positive and creative pleasure.

Take control of your thinking and your actions will follow.

6. From the Trenches

Words of Wisdom from Sue to a depressed Messie.

What's the worst problem in your house? Even if you are depressed, chip away at it a little bit at a time, maybe 5 to 30 minutes at a time Every day, do a little bit, and give yourself BIG huge pats on the back (tell yourself how wonderful you are, and how brave, and how it will eventually get better, etc) and little rewards (it doesn't have to cost money.) When you see progress, it will help somewhat, and ANYthing you can make yourself do will help with the depression.

For me, I started with keeping on top of the dishes. Then I GRADUALLY adding keeping on top of the laundry. Then I gradually and methodically began to organize and declutter. Only then did I do much in the way of actual cleaning. It took a LONG time, but I got to where I'm part way satisfied with my house.

(Thanks to Sue.)
