This is why I love Mary Poppins. She is an optimist just like me, with an edge of discipline and order.
"Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down..."That is how I get through the chores I hate. I sing, dance, laugh, and bribe myself with chocolate cookies to get the cleaning done. Most days it works. Some days I skip the cleaning and go straight to the chocolate. Don't judge. You have had those days too.
Next time you have something you have to do but don't want to do, put on some of your favorite music and dance or sing along while you get down to business. Trust me, it works wonders. Go ahead and give yourself that dessert when you finish because you will have deserved it.
