Ready? Set? GROW!
It seems like only yesterday that I pulled the old calendar off the wall and replaced it with a new one. And yet, almost a month has gone by. Where do the days go?
When I smoothed out the 2012 calendar and pinned it in its rightly place near my desk, I loved the idea of new beginnings- of starting over- of turning a new leaf, burning old bridges, putting my best foot forward...
It's January 30th, and I'm not even out of the gate yet. Still sitting and waiting for good things to just surround me. Thinking that by some miracle, my house will be organized, my body will be fit, my dreams will come true...
I've decided to take this week and start an early spring cleaning. To de-clutter and simplify my life. I just need to put priorities on my "junk".
I love too many objects.
I see beauty in everything from an old jar to a rusty doorknob.
I pick up flea market treasures "for later".
I hoard picture frames and ribbon and books I'll never read.
I put things off too often...
It's time I've grown up.
It's supposed to be a beautiful day here.
I think I'm gonna pull open the blinds and let the sunshine in.
Think I'll crank up some John Mayer, Nora Jones, and CCR.
Think I'll start packing stuff up for Goodwill. (Won't someone love them as much as I do?)
I'm getting realistic, frugal, seeking that unspeakable peace that comes with organization.
So, to all you three or four people that actually read my blog, I'll be away this week. (I may or may not come back with photos of my cleaning adventures!)
You all have a great week.
I'm opening the gate now...
See you in February!
