Yesterday morning I was asked I how get so much done because I am "involved" in many volunteer opportunities. It did not take long for me to respond that our house isn't clean. Notice there's no descriptive adverb use, such as "exactly" or "absolutely" or "nearly" or "frequently". It just plain isn't clean.
But, you know what? It doesn't matter. Long ago I actually did listen to someone who told me that the housekeeping can wait. And, taking that to heart, I have learned that it does! Not that the place is a mess every day but it's not move-in ready by any means! And, we have trouble finding some things which has often led to frustration and a re-purchase of said item so the next time we need it our odds are improved from 1 in a million to 2 in a million.
I can always find room for a foster pup or dog. It's a challenge to make that commitment but the joy paid for accepting it is amazing. Likewise, there's time for a multitude of other requests to be filled. And, it's not for any other reason than it is the right thing to do. Everything else - the smiles, the successes observed, the burden lifted, the licked cheeks - all bonuses.
There's nothing like getting outside; outside your house and outside your head. Exercise your heart.
