A friend of mine recommended the book “The lazy genius way” on Facebook. Her recommendation was so strong, I ordered the book off of Amazon right away. I read it in about 24 hours.
It really captivated me. Though, much in the book I felt I had put into practice over the last 40 years, I took much away from it.
The biggest and best thing that I tool os that what makes me happy, doesn’t have to make everyone happy. The parts of life that bring me joy, pain, calm, laughter doesn’t have to be the same thing that does it for everyone else.
Learning to coexist with people who are driven by something completely difcerent then us, is important. We can learn from each other, it probably won’t change us, but may open our eyes.
Taking care of myself, my family and my home are what drives me. It is why I wake up at 5:30, it is why I choose to make homemade meals 6 nights a week and it is why we have a balance of extracurricular activities and boring evenings at home.
When I am stressed, you can find me cleaning and organizing because it settles my brain. As items are put into their place, clutter is removed and I feel prepared for the day ahead, I can have a sense of peace and can rest. These things matter to me, so I choose to prioritize these tasks.
What matters most to you? What do you pour time into, that feels really worth it?

I’ve learnt that I am flexible with respect to the things I pour my energy into. I’ve given up things that I’ve been crazy about and taken on new things to replace them (and then given them up too) . I’ve completely forgotten why I’m telling you this because o stopped to have lunch in the middle of it, so I’ll leave it at that.

Our brains are crowded with lots of thoughts at a time. They want to take precedence over one another, which in turn makes us chaotic.. its beat to shush these voices and let the thoughts settle down.. Music helps me do this!
Once I can achieve this, everything falls into perspective and then I can work to complete one thing at a time!
