hippiegal: "My priority is saving energyand not just the stuff that comes off the grid. I've simplified our home and my way of doing things to make life as easy as possible."
Exactly!! I convinced(after five years) my husband that the entertainment center really could be unplugged all night when we weren't using it. And how about everything else from the microwave to the printer? And the kids have a list of chores they do weekly/daily to help lighten the burden. Everyone gets involved. It makes inviting company over much less stressful. But yes, household cleaning should be at the bottom of the list if you're juggling so much emotionally.
One of the most difficult things for me to throw out the door was my persistent perfectionist attitude. It was making me miserable. And, now I realize, several other people in my life. It's so HARD to "live and let live!"
Letting go feels like you're going to fly off into space, lost. But it can be life affirming, too. Again, read those article on Yoga Journal!!! They are spectacular and uplifting.
Having a "To Do" list can be detrimental to your health when you really think about it. If it's not realistic with what your body and emotions can handle then I say chuck the damn thing out the window. "Accomplishments For The Day" only lead to fruitless chasing your tail.
