So today we are going to write down positive things from every negative fear we have about this system.
Need more inspiration?
Okay, honestly? I tend to be a positive person and me just putting my mind to something is generally enough to get me to do things. That is me though. Maybe you need some positive energy. If you don’t want to keep your negative thoughts, lets us have them! We can turn them right around into wonderful positive things in NO time! Let’s do this!
An overview of the whole 31 days.
This week the Flylady is focused on Zone 1 - The Entrance, Front Porch and Dining Room.
Friday - Clean out your purse/car and date night!
We use each Friday as our De-Clutter your Purse and Car day. This only takes a few minutes and saves us lots of time later. Without the candy wrappers, old receipts, and other trash in your purse, finding your car keys becomes a breeze! Removing all the clutter and trash from your car ensures that you won’t be hit by any UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) in the event of a crash. Set aside a few minutes just for these two tasks each Friday. Here’s a list of things to toss:
Old gum and candy wrappers
Scraps of paper/old receipts
Drive thru bags and cups
Set your timer and get to it.
Friday is also Date Night. Relationships have to be nurtured. If not, you are going to wake up one day when the children are grown and not know the person you chose to spend your life with. It is up to us to make sure we grow together! Now don’t think I am going to leave out you single people! We all have relationships! Some are marital and others are friendship. As for those friendships that you have let fall by the wayside because your home was too messy for people to come over, it is time to pick up the phone and just say hi!
Relationships are not just inanimate objects; they are made of people with feelings. When we open up our hearts and let someone else in, we become better people! We can’t just ignore the relationship and expect it to stay the same. People need attention! You need attention! If you give it, it will come back to you! I promise.
Set your timer for 15 minutes. Wipe down the tops, the edges, and the legs on your Dining Room Table. Give the chairs a wipe too. Don't ask us about cleaning chemicals, use whatever cleaning and polishing supplies you normally use for your furniture.
When you are done, put on a pretty table cloth or some pretty candles. Your table will look lovely!
