Have you heard the term "she's a mess" or "she is a train wreck"? Whoa is me. Lol. Seriously I am a complete mess internally and externally. From total chaos in my crafting and ideas from one to the next to the lack of organizing the stacks and piles of supplies I am constantly dragging in. Add all of that to a totally unorganized lifestyle and it is getting to be something that is completely overwhelming.
So first things first, make a list, that is what I do. I make multiple lists daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. I file everything, I mark off everything. I am on a mission to make this chaos disappear from my life completely.
So along with my life journey to happiness, I am also including a journey to organization and cleaning up my life. After all. how will I be able to hit the road in my gypsy wagon or glamper if I am dragging all of this stuff around with me?
So, this day marks a new beginning of dejunking the 35 years of accumulating stuff. Oh man, it is lot's of stuff and this is going to be so amazing! (haha) So fun and free (oh my) and much needed.
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
