January Habit #9 Modifying Them To Fit

Dear FlyLady,

The sink is a little cleaner than yesterday.  We have very hard water, and it takes a lot of fingernail scrubbing to get off calcium deposits.  I’m making progress, which is more important than having a perfectly shining sink.  I get why you want us to make this huge improvement on Day 1, but I just cannot do it.  In your message, you ask “Why are you even reading this message,” if the sink hasn’t been shined.  I am trying your methods, and modifying them to fit my abilities.  Just getting off the grime is an improvement, and I must worry about the bleach and hot water soak another day.

I think working on the routines, including cleaning the sink as well as I can, is an incredibly good first step for me, as I have been hypothyroid with major depression for 23 years.  The gentle messages of Finally Loving Yourself are very helpful for me now.
