Small victories

I have a tendency to dream, think, and plan, big. I know that’s a trend right now, but I’m not sure if it’s really all that good. I usually want to do more than I can and to go faster than I can manage.
And then I’m never satisfied with what I’ve accomplished. I’m always two steps ahead of myself.
‘Yeah, I did that, but there’s so much more I should have done…’

Not healthy. I don’t want to do that to myself anymore. So I’m trying to celebrate the small victories.

We’ve been working in the house for three weeks now and yesterday I could finally declare part of the house clean and free of bat droppings.
The whole downstairs, two bedrooms, the small bathroom and the hallway between them. All clean. Okay, don’t come over and test for hygiene. When we have running water, I’ll do some more cleaning. But for now, I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished.

On to the weekend. I hope (see what I did? hope, not plan) to clean the kitchen walls for the first time (but they are not as dirty as these were) and the walls of the entry room for the second time (because they were the worst and I didn’t get everything off the first time).
But I’m also going to have some (more) fun at the beach.

Wishing you all a great weekend!
