Recently, I’ve been asked to embark on a certain “30 day” self-improvement project. Knowing my humble self, I had not a single idea on what I could possibly do, also considering I barely do much anyways.
But then it struck me...why not actually DO something?
I thought no better than to say yes to anything that would be brought up to me this next month until now.
That being said, I regret ever making that decision.
My mom saw the perfect opportunity to slack off and make me do all her work, starting with asking me to “clean the backyard.” I saw it as just raking some leaves and putting some things away.
Once I had seen her take the patio decor out in boxes and the outrageous number of plants in pots, I knew she was not playing around. Hours went by and finally the backyard was complete. Sadly, she wasn't done with me, asking me to now clean my room (which I had been putting off since the start of our “Coronacation”).
To say the least, I am a very “I’ll do it later” type of person. Meaning I have not seen the hardwood floors of my room for the past month. I decided to get it over with and push through the procrastination.
At the end, I felt a lot of stress lifted off me now that I can actually walk to my bed.
Saying yes to everything may be a struggle but it does pay off in certain circumstances. I've already said yes to some plans next week such as hiking and wearing my “protective mask” my parents keep shoving in my face.
Safe to say I will not be relaxing while learning from home this April.
