Thank you Monday Rachel

On Wednesday I came home from a buisness trip. I was tired, as I had driven a long distance over the day, as well as running two seminars – and we got in around eleven pm.

I walked into my room and said a little thank you to “Monday Rachel”.

We’ve been a bit of a nomadic family over the last few weeks and that pattern is only increasing. Home has begun to be a place where a few loads of washing are done, some chores and then it’s off again.

Monday was chore day- including changing the sheets. I was tired, and busy, and contemplated not finishing making the bed- and then I thought… hmm “Wednesday Rachel” will really appreciate the bed being made when she gets home.

Wednesday Rachel completely did!

There is something nice about the present you, doing something now to bless future you. It might be saving some funds for a special event, going to the gym, saying no to cake (within reason present me!) or doing a job now rather than procrastinating.

Becoming aware of moments choices in the past have positively impacted my present is definitely motivating me to make better choices every day.

Friday Rachel is doing chores today in fact, because Tuesday Rachel will be really glad she did.

Bet she’ll be even more appreciated than Monday Rachel was!
