We’re not quite through the first week of April, so I’m still allowed to sneak in a monthly list, right? I’m making a could-do list after my friend Caroline, from Carter Family 4, has been encouraging me (and all her other blog readers) for months.
So what is a could-do list exactly?
Well, encouraged by the slow living inspired ‘Simple Things’ magazine, a could-do list is a little like a to-do list, but without the pressure! It’s more about the things you would like to do, a gentle reminder of things in a much kinder and simpler way. That’s my take on it anyway. Ideas, plans, nice things to do rather than the pressures of daily life that are included in your usual to-do lists.
Heaven knows, I need to release the pressure a bit!
I’m really having a hard time at the moment, and trying to find the courage to write to you all about it. I’m nearly there, just need a bit of time to do it all too! I also need to be kinder to myself and the rest of my family, to find a more calming atmosphere, and to do some nice things for us all. So a could-do list sounds great to me. What do you think?
Would you like to write a could-do list?
Would it help you to relax and slow down a little? Or focus more on you? If you need some inspiration, you can look at Caroline’s lovely could-do list for April, or have a peep at mine below.
- Bring spring inside with fresh flowers
- Freshen up the interiors
- Have a spring sort-out and de-clutter
- Visit the beach and give it a clean
- Spend some quality time with the kids, visiting interesting and fun places
- Start to gently exercise as rehab
- Spend more time outdoors
- Be creative, make something beautiful
- Meet new people
- Talk more to make friends and feel better
- Tell people when I’m thinking about them
A few fairly random-sounding things here, but things I know I could do to make myself feel better. I need to be less isolated and tell people how I’m feeling, and that means getting out more and communicating with the real world!
I’m excited for spring, even if it is taking its time. I love the idea of new beginnings and making a fresh start, don’t you?
