A “RUSHED” People

A “RUSHED” People

Have you noticed this “rushed” I’m talking about today?

Do you notice it in yourself? In others?

Stop! and reflect….

Here’s mine:

Yesterday I stopped at my local grocery store to grab a few of the norm’s ie; milk, soda (yes, soda…I love it!), eggs, and of course: bread.

The store was crowded with 5pm after work shoppers, either a quick stop before picking up kids from daycare or after school activities OR just for a few items (last minute ingredients for the night’s dinner)…just like me.

Goal:  GET IN! GET OUT! and GET ON! to the next daily ritual. Related image

Now, I’m not that fond of the whole grocery store routine.  In fact, my therapist has me break my shopping trips into 2 or 3 or to send my son in to grab a few things…reason?  To limit/reduce my anxiety episodes.  Grocery stores top my list.

Anyway,  back to my epiphany…..

I noticed that we were like cars on a busy interstate. Passing each other, weaving around and through, close calls clipping the heels of a fellow shopper, stalling in our lane, going the wrong direction in our lane and well you get the  idea….all of such being done with NO REGARD to each other as people….sharing the same space (the store) with the same purpose.

It seemed to “SHOCK” them and they were SO appreciative that I would do such a selfless act…..

No one smiled, few said excuse me and others seemed to race to beat someone to the checkout line……

When it came my time to leave, having gathered my staples (no, not the kind you use in the office) I proceeded to the checkout lane.  I only had 5 items but used a regular lane, not express.  While waiting my turn I let 3 people go ahead of me because they had 1 or 2 items.  It seemed to “SHOCK” them and they were SO appreciative that I would do such a selfless act…..

Finally, my turn to place my yummies on the belt….the lady before me was finished and the cashier handed her her change and receipt clumped together (rush).  The woman was trying to hastily to separate the money from the receipt and get it into her wallet and purse…not just throw it in to lose it to the bottomless purse pit…as she looked up at me frazzled and apologetic saying, “I’m so sorry for taking so long, maam (maam? me? a maam? haha) and without thinking I replied with a smile: “It’s ok, take your time, I’m in no rush.

I could see immediate relief and calmness come over her as she said:  “Thank you, everyone seems to usually be in such a dang hurry”.

I felt like I allowed her a mini, I mean, MINI vacation. Could you imagine the effect this would have on the universal spin of things if we had an “I’m in NO RUSH” epidemic????

So, hey, give it a try, will you?  The next time you’re out, affect someone’s RUSH!  and maybe throw in a HELLO and/OR a SMILE.

Thank you for slowing your RUSH of daily doings to take the time to read my NOTE.

I love writing!  

………….and I love YOU TOO!  (That needs to be said more too! Should never be TOO RUSHED to say “I LOVE YOU”)

100% “FROM” vs. 100% “WITH”

Present moment organizing 100 percent ingredients

Careful when reading your Food Ingredients.

Ingredients/package reads:

Made 100% ‘FROM’…… or  Made 100% ‘WITH’

2 little words.

So almost close to meaning the same things when you are reading your food packages and it’s  ingredients….but in actuality, they are quite different.

Stop and think. When was the last time you can remember while food shopping that you looked for this label, read it, gave it importance, or cared at all:???

Blow Dryer and Dish soap.

 

 

One of the surefire ways to remove crayon from walls is to use a blow dryer and regular mild dish soap. Turn on the blow dryer and blow hot air on the crayon marks. The wax will heat up and begin to melt, making it easier to wipe away.

What tips or tricks do you use to remove crayon marks from your walls????

Stress caused by CLUTTER

When the clutter in our home starts mounting, our stress levels rise right along with it. Dishes pile up, laundry bins overflow, belongings get misplaced and surfaces go uncleaned for too long — and in turn, we become not only more worried about about keeping the home clean, but also more stressed out in general.

Home organization is one of the most universal stress triggers, according to a recent online survey. Eighty-four percent of recently stressed Americans say they worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough, and within that group, 55 percent called it out as a source of recent stress.

Combating clutter in your house or apartment is instrumental in creating a calming environment where you feel relaxed, and lowering overall stress levels. The best way to tackle cleaning and organization in your home is to implement small daily routines and actions that will, over time, result in a better-kept home. Get through unwanted piles and excess “stuff” with these tips and tricks for clearing out clutter and expert strategies for tackling both physical and psychological clutter.

It’s also important to make sure that everyone in the home is pulling their weight: Over four in five respondents who were worried about their homes felt like they were responsible for a larger amount of household than others who live with them. Try breaking up cleaning responsibilities or areas of the home into manageable bits, and then assigning them to different roommates or family members so that everyone’s tasks are clearly outlined and the work is evenly divided.

Once your home is clean and clutter-free, it will be easier to maintain the level of cleanliness you desire.
