For quite a while now, I’ve been taking notice of my black-and-white thinking patterns. Especially when it comes to housework. I get so overwhelmed, and then I tell myself I don’t have to do it all right now. I can do it in stages – a little bit at a time. It’ll still get done. This helps a lot. Right now, I’m chipping away at our laundry. We were without a dryer for the first time in twenty years and just recently got a used one. The laundry had piled up while I was going to the laundromat. I’m getting it caught up slowly but surely. This is just one area of my life where I’ve noticed my black-and-white thinking. There are many other times that I’ve noticed myself doing all-or-nothing thinking. But once I notice it, I can do something about it.
Have you noticed yourself doing black-and-white or all-or-nothing thinking? Have you made any progress in that area? What have you done to make progress? Please share in the Comments below. Till next time,
I had a good Christmas at home with my husband and son. We had a stuffed turkey breast roll. I’ve never had one of those before. It was good. My son enjoyed all of his presents. We had to get him some new outerwear. He needed everything except gloves (which I’d just bought him) – toque, coat, snowpants and boots. Everything I bought him fit and he liked them, which is unusual for him. He’s usually so picky when it comes to clothes.
Yesterday, I visited with my parents, my sister and my brother-in-law. We had a great day. I made my dad a Christmas-themed self-soothing kit. I don’ know if he gets the idea of it, but he liked it anyways. I gave my mom a scarf that I knitted and a mug. I’d already given my sister and her hubby their gift. It was also a Christmas-themed self-soothing kit. The great thing about them is that you can make each one unique to the person that you’re giving it to. In theirs, I put a video that I made of their wedding. I put their photos to music. They haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. I think they’ll enjoy it.
There’s an extreme cold warning in effect here, so I’m not going out any more than I have to. My printer isn’t working right. I have to try to get it working as soon as possible. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Till next time,
