FlyLady - Pagan Style - Babysteps day 3

For those of you who don't know what FlyLady is, it's an inspirational website designed to help you clean and de-clutter your home and your life. It helps you create routines that work for you, your lifestyle & your family to help housekeeping become stress-free and something you just do naturally and daily rather than something you put off until the last minute and then stress about when you have company coming over.

I have felt for awhile now that many aspects of the FlyLady program can be applied in spiritual ways to those who consider themselves, Neo-Pagans, Kitchen Witches, Hearth Witches, Green Witches, etc. I will be going over some FlyLady basics here in my blog and writing about how they can be seen as a spiritual thing; not just a house-cleaning and organizing thing! If you missed it, check out my post called "FlyLady - Pagan Style; Welcome Letter"

When you start with FlyLady, there are 31 days of "Baby Steps" to help you slowly start to integrate small changes into your daily routines. It's about developing habits and changing your mind-set to a positive one!

BabySteps Day 3;
Do what We Have Already Done!
Get Dressed to Shoes in the morning!
Keep your sink shining!

Anything else you get done is a "bonus"!  It's easy to want to jump ahead.  We see that shining sink and want the rest of the house to look that good too!  Remember, the babysteps are about building routines and habits, and about positive thinking!  So Do what you can, as long as you repeat the first 2 BabySteps!  Don't punish yourself for what you don't get done!  Just celebrate what you DO get done!  Be kind to yourself, and allow time for your new habits to take hold!
