I have discovered something. Just cleaning one little random thing a day, makes me happy. Here is the trick. Pick something that has been bugging you lately. For instance, yesterday, I picked the shelf in my bathroom. It’s dusty. I see it every day and every day, it’s sticking its tongue out at me, saying, “Look at me! And there’s nothing you can do about it!” So I moved crap off of it and dusted it yesterday. Instant boost to my happiness factor. There are things I have to do every day, like dishes, showering and picking up the kids from school. Just because those take the majority of my energy, doesn’t mean I can’t sneak in one little task that makes me feel just a little bit more in control of my day. I don’t go crazy. I didn’t clean the rest of the bathroom. Just that one little thing made my day.
