As I continue to seek balance between (crazily) focusing on "getting a head start on school stuff" (see previous posts) vs. getting calm and centered and rejuevenated before school begins, I believe I may have found a path....
This amazing blog just might salve to kook in me that wants to do school stuff everyday AND the part of me that knows I absolutely must take a breath and pull away from school so I will be ready for school.
Here's the bloggers plan for a "remarkable life":
1.Purge, downsize, and minimize
2.Organize what you CHOOSE to own and use (emphasis mine)
3.Commit to and maintain a streamlined routine for the mundane tasks of your life
4.Determine what matters most to you
5.Remind yourself that even if you live to be 100, life is short
6.Say no to what doesn't matter
7.Enjoy being industrious (again my emphasis)
8.Get rid of everything toxic in your life, because toxic is clutter
9.Live within your means (and I might add, try to get pleasure from it)
10.Take risks and be brazen
11. Get enough sleep (Hey, I'm 51, overweight, and perimenopausal.... sleep is the bomb.)
So over the next few weeks, I will explore the power and the pleasure of becoming Uncluttered. Will this be the preparation I need for a productive, uncluttered new year? We will see....
