I got into bed last night and was startled to notice, AFTER getting in, that my bed was not made. I panicked. I had taken a Sunday nap, and thought maybe that was why, but could see that my husband’s side was unmade as well. I hadn’t made the bed at all yesterday, and I hadn’t noticed. That’s what brings the panic.
I’m trying so hard to keep my focus. There are times when I do make a conscious decision to ignore a mess. But the reason my home gets into a total state of disaster is that I often don’t even see messes.
I have been making my bed everyday for almost 4 weeks now. I’ve always heard that it takes 28 days to develop a new habit. I’m almost there, and yesterday I bombed. I can’t believe that I didn’t notice all day long.
What does this mean? In the past, this would have been a sign of my losing focus and the downhill slide would start. It can’t mean that this time. I am making a true effort and I’m just going to get right back onto the right track. One small failure can’t mean overall failure.
