It's commencement address season, and here's a take on one that is quite inspirational, to me. Janet shared it on Facebook over the weekend, and I can't help but share further:
This post crossed my path recently and included some well-known (to me) and lesser-known (again, to me) tips on getting your day off to a productive start. It reminded me of the times I've gone to bed in my workout gear, just to save time and BE motivated upon rising. It may be time to start that habit again...
But then, there's always this new study on the core sets of exertion needed to gain optimal results, and the idea is that if you do them all in succession, with intervals, you can get it done in seven minutes. Seven rather strenuous minutes, but still... What do you think? Would you give that a try? I might.
I love that feeling, having everything hanging semi-neatly with like items, folded and stacked pieces in order as well, shoes too... We didn't consult any organizational gurus before diving in, but I did see a few pictures on Pinterest that got me really excited AFTER we were done! Oh well, you work with what you have, and some of these are a bit oooh-la-la. Dream closets, I believe they're called. We're more (much more) like the first picture than any of the others, though lacking in number of bins on the top shelf. I want more of those!
How about the color coordination here? And the orange boxes? Love.
Who wouldn't love a marble-topped island in the middle of your closet?! Ha.
At first I thought, "Fabulous closet! Love the settee." But the more I look at this picture, the more I think it really is a showroom for clothing. (I think it's the multiples of one item that gives it away. But still, a lovely setting.)
Last tidbit for the day, something I need to remember, every day:"Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace."
I hope your week is off to a great start! Seth and I have agreed to try out the seven-minute workout tonight... wish us luck!
