I love to read books about organizing and creating home routines. I also love printing out schedules and to-do lists and cleaning routines. I’m just not very good at the putting into action of these items. With the new responsibilities that I’ve added to my life, wanting to be a great wife and mother, and my strong want to step up the effort on my weight loss journey, I’m feeling a bit like I’m burning my candle at both ends. This week I’m concentrating on cleaning out my clutter so that I will be able to work on my high priority items.
I’ve always been a clutter collector. I’m not a big fan of knick knacks, but I amass paper clutter like it’s going out of style. I also find lots of crafts that I’m going to make one day, clothes I’m going to wear one day, books I’m going to read one day and things that I’m going to do one day all over the house. I have recipes and articles I need to read, papers I need to file, filing systems I need to overhaul, the list goes on and on and on. The problem with all that, though, is that all the buildup makes it so that I can’t do any of the things that are important. The clutter is keeping me from my responsibilities, taking away my time to be a good wife and mother, and giving me excuses from my weight loss journey.
So it’s time to clean house.
This week is going to be devoted to cleaning out physical clutter from my house. I’ll also be working on breaking those mental blocks that keep my emotional clutter level high and prevent me from moving forward, organizing properly and keeping my priorities straight. I’ve done a lot of work in this vein lately, so I know that this week will be successful. But I may not be too active on Twitter or the forum (which, ps – I super totally love). My goals this week aren’t weight loss related, but they are tangential!
Oh – and my husband has a truck now, so I don’t have to drive him and hopefully will make it to the show tomorrow!!
