Enchanted Living 101 : )

The foundational step to living an enchanted life is to create a schedule for your self and stick to it!
Look over what needs to be done and select the things that are of up most importance to you. Take time to priorities what you really want to happen in your day. Then put in one fun thing that you would really like to do each day it doesnt have to be a huge thing just a little some thing that will add some magic to your day : ) Perhaps curling up with a wonderful book and some hot chocolate, or perhaps you have wanted to pull out some watercolors and do some painting, just some little thing that will brighten your day.
The next step is to have your home in order. Oh this one is hard for me with five children and homeschooling our home looks like a bomb went off in it by the end of the day, and being organized is not one of my strong points : ) But as I have been pondering how to live more creatively and bring a little enchantment into our everyday lives one of the basic building tools is to have my home clean and tidy. Other wise it just causes stress and disharmony with in our home. I just go around feeling flusterated and annoyed. One site I joined at the first of the year to help me with this effort was I have been kind of letting it slide a little to much so I need to climb back in the saddle and really focus on the Morning and Evening Routines. A wonderful book that I consider one of my own personal classics is Living a Beautiful Life 5oo ways to Add Elegance, Order,Beauty and Joy to Every Day Of Your Life. By Alexandria Stoddard. Just some fun ideas I hope they are helpful. Well its time to get the troops moving and start a good half and hour cleaning session. : ) Good Luck with your endeavors to create a little more magic in your days!
