Finding Domestic Bliss

I was thinking about the tagline for my blog. Specifically, the domestic bliss part. It made me think about what domestic bliss really means. To me, it means happiness within my home... within myself.

Lately, I've been struggling with my current situation. Not relationship wise, but taking care of my responsibilities, my disappointments, my expectations and thinking about how I can change. In particular, our home. Cleaning, decluttering and organizing is not my strong suit. I get disappointed in myself for not taking care of all the things that I need to. Taking care of the cleaning (although I do get help), is primarily my responsibility and I tend to get behind on things that are not daily chores such as dusting, mopping and deep cleaning.

What I want to Accomplish
I want to be able to get my work done at a decent time of day, clean our home the way it needs, have dinner on the table and still have time for myself in the evening to do what I enjoy. I usually start too late in the day on my work and it ends up running into dinner time. And to be honest, most of the time, once we have eaten dinner I end up lounging around instead of cleaning.

Why I Get Behind
My biggest struggle is time. Time that I take from myself. I stay up way too late then I end up waking up too late the next day. I end up not getting enough sleep and I'm extremely tired the next day. It affects my motivation to get anything done. When this happens, I feel like I'm letting myself and my family down by not taking care of my responsibilities.

How Can I Fix It
Aside from going to bed earlier and making sure I get plenty of rest, the main thing I need to do is stop spending so much time on social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tik Tok are my go to browsing destinations. And... get on a schedule of some sort. Especially with cleaning. I tried zone cleaning and tried it again... and again... and failed. I need to think of a way that will work for me.

What We Can Ask Ourselves to Find Domestic Bliss
Many times we look to our spouse, our children or other people we are living with to make us happy instead of thinking about who we really are and who we want to be. What are your expectations? What are your responsibilities? What are your disappointments? Are you happy with your current situation? If not, how can you change them?
