30 Days of Home


I've noticed something that I really struggle with as an adult and in motherhood is feeling overwhelmed, so much so that I let it paralyze me. Which as you might imagine, makes it so I don't accomplish things, and that feeling of overwhelm spirals. I know how much better it feels to complete tasks and get things done that have been lingering on my ever growing to do lists, but the overwhelm stops me in my tracks. 

I had been thinking, I should do one tiny small thing every day, and watch the results compound over time. I even sat down to make a list (my favorite thing to do). I wrote out a long list of things that I've been wanting to accomplish in our home since we moved in over two years ago. I thought if each task was small and manageable, only requiring a few minutes of my day, that would be a great place to start. Well, I made a list to start September 1st, and then I kind of forgot about it. 

That was, until I saw Leslie Graham started a similar series of "Nurturing Home" on her blog and social media channels. It has been so fun to watch her videos and see everything she has accomplished. It got me thinking, if she can do it, so can I! So, I gathered my list and figured there is nothing better to keep me accountable than to put it out in the world. My brain really likes things to make sense and be orderly, so I'd love for this to start October 1st. But, I think that is really just me making excuses for myself. So here we go, September 26th and starting 30 Days of Home!

Here is the list of things I'd like to accomplish, not necessarily in order. Some of them will require more time and effort, but others are very quick and easy to accomplish. My plan is to show up on Instagram stories each day to update progress, and I'd like to create a few Reels for when I have time or it makes sense for the task of that given day. I'll be sure to update here too if there are links to posts from a given task. I hope that you'll join me on the journey and maybe it will even inspire you, too!
