Decluttering, life is good!

Fun Projects:

Armoire - TOTAL disaster - Cleaned, sorted, organized. Lovin it!

Book Shelf - Collection of junk thrown together - Emptied, Dusted, Style added!

Kitchen Shelf - Seriously overrun with appliances, books, and an easy place to put things out of reach - Tossed the junk, reorganized the shelf, looks great!

I love the feeling of tackling the HOT SPOTS in the house - It's almost like I'm nesting... is this like preparation for back to school? Either way, I'll take it!

One Step Closer.

I've been on a journey this year. I entered into a valley - a yucky lonely place. And slowly together with my rockin' husband holding my hand, have been climbing out. (sometimes I feel like I'm wearing a boot in this climb) But I found this article accidentally (yeah right) and really loved it.

And today, I got rid of some baggage. I was holding on to a few little things, reminders of this old me. I didn't want to fully let go. I just wanted to hang on to a little piece of the past. You know like 'just a little'... When I realized, that wasn't me, and I let it go. I tossed it happily in the trash, and did a fist pump in the air, with a HUGE smile on my face, and I could feel myself, climb one step higher.

You know, I'm not the only one having a hard time letting go of this 'one thing' you know you need to change about yourself. Why do we let it drag on? I don't have the answers, except to take it one step at a time. Hopefully, I can inspire you to toss some old part of you in the trash, that is holding you back from even greater blessings. Get going. Those blessings are waiting for you, from a loving Father in Heaven.
