When I start thinking "how can I cook and exercise today when the house needs cleaning SO badly, the car needs servicing, I need to mail that stuff off?" I know that I've lost perspective.
The house exists to serve me, not the other way around.
The car exists to serve me, not the other way around.
The errands are completed to serve my life; I don't live to complete errands. I don't live to serve the dry cleaner, the post office, the bank, the store.
It's empowering to put things in their place! The biggest challenge is keeping them there...
