It’s interesting how quickly I’ve forgotten some of the lessons I learned a few months ago from my 30-Day Clear-the-Clutter Challenge. (I guess I can’t really say I mastered them at this point!)
I was reminded of so many of these as I listened and read about the third “R” of Lorrie Flem’s Five R’s Bundle as part of this month’s review for The Gabby Moms program. Entitled Refine, this audio message and PDF file shared so many tips and ideas for improving my homemaking and managing skills.
One of the things that really stuck with me was the section on attitude. Because, yes, sometimes I don’t have the best one — especially when it comes to cleaning! It was a gentle reminder that my attitude sets the tone for our household and it’s “contagious — whether it’s healthy or filled with germs of grumbling.”
Beyond the attitude check, there were also practical ideas on how to improve in our homemaking skills. Managing chores, ways to clear out clutter, and menu-planning are just a few of the other topics.
The fourth R stands for Rejuvenate. This was also a timely message! It really honed in on the basics of discipline with children. My greatest takeaway from this audio was the importantance of being consistent — and the basic discipline “procedure” is going to be so helpful.
In all honesty, I didn’t get to the 5th R! There was so much in the other messages, I haven’t taken time to listen to it yet — but I do know it’s about rest. And I do know I need to listen to it, because my soul is in need of rest!
I’ll add it to my to-do list — and then go rest… 🙂
