I feel like I am dropping balls every few minutes–that’s how many are in the air. For the most part though, I am trying to give myself grace because getting thrown out of my routine because of the nature of just the Holidays in general and then a move on top of it–has me turned upside down.
The move wasn’t planned either and it wasn’t without it’s drama (will it or won’t it? how will it actually happen?) but I can’t and don’t share everything here. Then there all those things I love about December to prepare for January that I wasn’t able to do this year. So I guess I am doing those things now (plus all the pesky details like canceling cable and internet–why does it take an hour on the phone?–and changing over rental insurance and just generally worrying over if packages and envelopes with important things will make it to the new address).
Man, that felt like a lot of complaining. On the upside, I am starting to feel more organized in the new place. And so it is time to be more organized. (One cool thing is we put up some new curtains that look amazing that I cannot wait to share next week).
Here’s five ways I am going to make that happen.
One: Back to Bullet Journaling.
I have been tied to my Bullet Journal for over half a year…until halfway through my move. I live and died by that thing and the To Do Lists and just lists in general it held. Now that I have gone about 15 days without it, I am feeling the pain. So are other people in my life when I drop one of those balls.
Two: Work on the PowerSheets
I spent the money for Lara Casey’s PowerSheets and I really want to sit down and think about this year and my goals. I have lots of ideas and concepts but I have lacked the time and even the place (although my desk is starting to come together…see below) to do my thinking and writing. Gotta get on this.
Three: Adapt My Schedule/Get Back on a Schedule Now that I have moved, this needs to happen. I am someone who always feels as if I am forgetting someone or something (even when I am not) and having a schedule and certain systems in place give me such peace of mind. Plus, I don’t drop as many balls. #GumptionANDGrace
Four: Continue to Unpack You may have heard this mantra of how three people are living in a two person place for a few months I’ve been mentioning but the truth is I can’t go into intense with the unpacking. In fact, originally I was planning to live out of a suitcase for these weeks. That has changed which is great but basically do what I can here.
Five: Get the Tasks that are Giving my Anxiety Out of the Way Passport Photo (apparently as of early January, Illinois Driver’s License aren’t valid forms of ID to fly) and then the Passport (I have been meaning to renew my passport for over a year??). Some legal stuff (I can’t go into details but it isn’t bad and yet it’s still stressing me out). Some left over moving paperwork. Then I need to go back to these sheets.
Also, I cannot forget that THIS is always true. Even in chaos. He makes a way.
I am linking up for Five on Friday with April and Oh Hey Friday with Karli.
See you back here Monday!
