Dear Pinkies, please welcome back my Pink Mommy Trish Rankin here with a cool idea for putting a bit of balance back into our lives.
Today I'm taking a "pieces day:" a day to do everything I haven’t had time to do, to pick up the pieces that I’ve left around because I am overscheduled. But aren’t we all? When we leave unfinished work, we tend to add guilt to our long list of tasks and issues. None of us needs guilt. Plus, when have things left on our plate at the end of the day, it can be hard to sleep, which further drains us of mojo.
I invite you to take a pieces day to clear that plate, get some refreshing sleep, and then reward yourself with something you want to do, like reading a book, spending time outdoors, or scrapbooking.
Here's what's on the list for my Pieces Day today:
Can I do all of this? I’m not certain, but I know I can get a lot of it done. I've already started and am making great progress. What I don’t get done today will go on the top of tomorrow’s list, and I will feel so good when I am finished with my Pieces Day.
Can you give yourself a Pieces Day sometime soon? What would you do? What would be put on hold while you did it? How would you reward yourself?
