Writing to minimise drudgery and find solutions

A post about how writing helps me find solutions, and minimise stress. I write and find solutions when running my home gets me down, and I decided it would help me make filing our annual income tax returns quick, and stress-free. And it did!

When our annual income tax returns force me to deal with paperwork I have put aside and left undone the full year. I’m generally not prone to feelings of sadness, but this is one time that’s always an exception. I fall back on the only thing that helps me – Chocolate cake and hot cup of chai!

This year, I decide to put my knowledge of piano practise techniques to use, and organise this activity once and for all.

I’m going to FIGHT THIS BEAST and I’m going to WIN!

Then enjoy my chocolate cake and chai with a satisfied grin.
