I have lately been trying to do four things every single day. These are things that I want to prioritize in my life. They can be big or small; sometimes each thing takes less than five minutes, while other times one item can take a large chunk of my day.
Something to invest in my future: This is something that will allow me to live a better life later. It could be career research, putting money into savings, or learning something new that will be helpful to me down the road. It could be as simple as sending someone an email to ask a career question or as complicated as redoing my entire home filing system.
Something that is laundry: By “laundry,” I mean something that needs to be done in the now and that I will likely have to do again later. This could be something like cleaning out my car, activating that card that’s been sitting on my desk for forever, or, well, laundry. It’s the stuff that tends to pile up of we ignore it to long.
Something to look forward to: I’ve been trying to make every day memorable. Even if it is something simple, like a nice bubble bath, my favorite cookie, or a show on Netflix, I have been trying to be very intentional about making every day count.
Something for someone else: For me, I am usually able to knock this one off the list at work or around the house so I don’t think about it much. However, I thought I would mention it because it is so rewarding to take a little time out of our day to do something for someone else. It can make our day so much more meaningful.
Well, there you have it. Those are my four things. Are there certain things that you aspire to do every day?

Yes. I try to sit in prayer each morning, keep up with my blog, cook dinner and connect with a friend. Thanks for allowing me to think about it. I also really appreciated your category of laundry. There sure are a lot of items in that category, aren’t there?

Oh yes! I used to hate any items that didn’t lead to growth, but I find if I accept them and try to go about them mindfully, they can be pleasant reminders of staying present.
