You will notice some changes that are starting to happen to my blog. The first noticeable change is the separation of the work, run, and mom into pages at the top right corner of the blog. I am going to start writing in three different areas of my life and get this organized, finally! Welcome to the change.
If you haven't started doing positive changes to your life, what can you do right now? Pick something small. maybe it is finally emptying out the car, the kitchen cupboards or under the bathroom sink. Maybe it is sorting through those old photos and cleaning off your desk top. Pick something small today and make one task a priority tomorrow, and the following days. De-cluttering the "stuff" that lurks around you will also de-clutter your brain. When you remove the "toxins" from your life that seems to turn in to all you can think about when you should be thinking of something else, it gets overwhelming and quite frankly useless. Absolutely useless. When I talk about ridding of stress, it doesn't just include situations you find yourself caught up in, people that are no long er worth your time of fight, but it also includes the (truly) worthless things that seem to bog you down.
This weekend, I am focusing on organizing my thoughts on this blog. There is content that is jumbled in my brain that I want to sort out on these pages and it is valuable to me and you dear reader, because when I am organized, I suit myself (and you) well. Pick up a book if you don't know where to start, or just pick a small closet in the back of the house that holds unnecessary items and if you haven't used it in 6 month, either toss it, give it to someone who will use it or take it to the shelter house. Turn the energy that you use to hold the sentiments into positive energy to allow someone else to have it and love it like you once did, no matter the value of that item. Giving is better than receiving and when you give to someone who will truly need and enjoy it, that is way better than it collecting dust in your home.
I have made organizing in Daniella's room a group effort. When I know that she is just collecting, well I will say it, crap, I sit her down and have the same speech I did 6 month prior about how it is time for her to decide that there is another little human who doesn't have these items (speaking specifically about the women's shelter-house) and it would be wonderful for her if she would pick out a few things that she hasn't used in a while to pass along. Every time she does it willingly because she knows that maybe that little girl who is getting this had it and because of a special situation, she couldn't bring it with her because her mommy was keeping her safe. it makes her feel good. Oh, my little donater, she is. My point? Get everyone involved. make it a group effort. We both know, as mothers, some of that stuff didn't end up in the closet because YOU put it there.
Fall back in love with enjoying your home, not just the things in it. By de-cluttering, you will feel free and be able to love more deeply. Make some changes.
