Sure there were things that happened last year that I am so thankful for. I am not saying it was all bad. I just hope this year is better health wise, financially, and in other ways as well.
I think this year I will focus on one the one word challenge by SNAP. Don't know what it is? Check it out here. So, my word is.....
I want to unclutter my life...my thoughts, my surroundings, my life. There is just too much clutter around to cause stress, slow progress, and just get in the way. I need to unclutter.
I am tired of the 'drama' of others. I don't like drama and when I do need some, I will read a book or watch the soaps on TV. I am done being the one stressed out over problems others have/made for themselves and suddenly I am the one feeling bad or running to the rescue. No more! Now there is ObamaCare so there is no excuse, see a therapist!
I am tired of living in a tiny house (our house is not even 900 sq. ft.) yet surrounded by furniture and stuff that is designed to fill a mansion. I don't collect anything (but money) and yet having to hang on to all these 'things' that aren't even mine. Done! It is all going out. I am done walking in a maze to bring my laundry to the machine and not being able to fine my winter clothes as I freeze because there is a hope chest in the way. I am done. It is all getting thrown out or given away.
I also am tired of having things in my way so I need to find a spot for everything and put everything in its spot. I am sure you know what it is like when you're making a card or a scrap page and you can't find room to even put your paper down on the desk (even though mine is 6 ft. long and I still have no room). That needs to end too. I want to do my crafts and not spend two hours trying to make room and dig out my dies and all. No need for it when I could have spent them two hours scrapping.
I need to unclutter my thoughts as well. I have so many things running through my head and worrying about what if I don't do this or what if I don't do that, then what will this person do or that person do? I understand a mom is a mom for life, even when her kids are adults but I did all I can do and I can't do no more. It is now my time. I raised my family, time for you to raise yours and let me be grandma. I do not mean I don't want you to be part of my life because I certainly do, just not my whole life. I need to do things I want to do.
Are you going to take the challenge? What is your word?
