I was in the middle of scrubbing my tub with some comet and a magic eraser, and I thought I should send you a note.
I have dealt with depression my whole life, and I’m coming out the other side of a really rough year. I have good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks. The last two weeks were rough for me, and my apartment was looking sad, which made me sad. I stood in the middle of my kitchen this morning and thought about all I had to do, and it was too much. It made me feel tired and I wanted to crawl back in bed and not deal with it. This is how my depressed mind works.
But, I told myself to do ONE 20/10. Don’t focus on the end result, just start working for 20 minutes. I am amazed at how much I am able to accomplish in only 20 minutes and how much better I feel once it’s done.
Having that tool for keeping my house straight has improved my quality of life. When things get overwhelming, I tell myself to do only one 20/10. Looking at the big picture is too much, but just doing a little at a time has helped so much.
I guess I thought I should let you know how much I appreciate your blog. You’ve helped me change how I look at things and how I deal with messes or big projects. I was feeling sad this morning, but I feel better now. You have given me a tool to use to cope with my depression. My therapist never did anything this earth-shattering for me. I hope the universe brings you something wonderful!
All the love,
