Thank you for the support you showed me last week. It was very helpful, and I keep it to my heart during these times.
I looked around my home a few days ago and realized I have many unusable areas, areas that are stuffed with items we didn't know what to do with when we moved in a little over a year ago. We have grown accustomed to these stagnant spots and simply overlooked them.
I am typically an organized person and don't like to collect things. We have had to move several times, giving away unnecessary items. I thought I had kept pretty much just what we needed. Now I wonder what is in those corners, shelves, and cabinets. I guess I don't need them if I can't really remember what's there. It could be sentimental, I suppose. I do know some boxes are empty. Yet, they are there taking up space and some sort of energy flow, a feng shui chi thing I read about a while ago.
Why am I discussing this? I need to de-clutter for my mental health. There is something calming knowing these knots-of-stuff have loosened and the items have a place. I need to make space for the important things. I like being able to find what I am looking for. I'm also hoping this will have a positive effect on my physical health and emotional eating.
I may not be blogging/commenting much, again, but I feel really good about how I will be spending my time. I'm going in the right direction. C25K, upper body resistance, re-booting mini-fitness goals, and meal planning continues (also happy about this). Additionally, I'm finding ways to be with my kids (and giving myself a break from the guilt).
Just trying to be better than before.
