Show Up!

Show up. If you show up on Monday the rest of the week feels doable. It's just like making your bed in the morning. Theories say that making your bed in the morning is not important because of having a neat room. It's important because the first thing you do in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Making your bed is symbolic of starting the day with accomplishment. Whatever happens after that, they day is not a total loss because at least you made your bed. ;)

Let's show up today, shall we? For me, I'm going to work on the Yarn Trends Newsletter that I write for Annie's, I'm going to work on the family budget, I'm going to run at least 30 minutes, I'm going to check in with a friend who had surgery, and then I'll crochet on the secret project, and pick up groceries that I ordered last night. And yep, I made my bed.

How are you showing up today?

Just wanted to say thank you for these uplifting posts! (I did make my bed, then delivered crocheted toys and blankets to the children's hospital!)

Sounds great, but I never make my bed in the morning. I leave it open for the mites, because otherwise they florish in the warmth of your bed, and open up the windows to air the room and sheets in the morning. But I always make my bed in the afternoon, when I close the windows.
I do agree that starting the day with something good, helps you to make the most of a day.
Take care,
