I’m in the mood for another Thirty Chic Days. Even though life is going wonderfully well - I’m (almost) keeping up at work and home despite having lots to do, eating well most of the time, and feeling generally good about things, I know there are areas where I’m dragging the chain a little bit.
I do know that when I’m really ‘on’, I feel amazing. When I’m up to date with home and work and have done things ahead of time life is easy. I deal with issues as they come up no problem. But if I let little things slip here and there, that’s when I get irritable and grumpy, and it’s only because of me.
I’ve thought of all the little things that I can do to make me feel good rather than lazy and guilty. None of them are earth-shattering or even particularly major. But that doesn’t matter and in fact is preferable. They will be easier to do and all it takes is a gentle upward swing to set me off in the right direction again.
I’ve started by listing all the ways I feel unchic and created an action plan. Just little things I can do day to day to feel more chic and less blah. Instead of feeling demotivated and down, creating an action plan of simple steps reminds me how easy it is to feel chic again, rather than ho-hum.
A good friend reminded me of the quote below, and it started me off on this new Thirty Chic Days idea of what little things I can do for life to feel magical again.
‘If you want an extraordinary life, you must have equally extraordinary routines, because your daily actions are creating your life.’ -Tonya Leigh
Tomorrow is the first day of June. It’s winter here in the southern hemisphere and summer in the north. A fresh new month of thirty days just waiting for us to dive on in.
