Clearing of the mind...

There is something incredibly uplifting about letting go of stuff, rearranging furniture, and creating something new within your own home. I don't know why that always surprises me, but it does. And then I wonder why I've waited so long to take on these projects. It's been a good week of small accomplishments. Sometimes that's all it takes for the world to look a little different.

The clearing of clutter often reflects the clearing that I need, to move forward, when I'm feeling stuck. The physical act of moving parts  loosens the barriers within my mind. I feel lighter and more able to step up to meet the next challenge. Taking the time for reflection is vital.

I wish to be more conscious and present in the world, especially with my husband and children. I am determined to make some changes now...before another year goes by. I believe it's going to be a good school year for my children, and a good year for all of us. I see it and it will be...

Now, I'm going to go pour myself a whiskey, put my legs up and watch my children play outside as one more summer night softly goes dark...

Clearing clutter is definitely cathartic. Best wishes with the new school year.

Ah, you bet. A new year. We had to clear our living room and kitchen for the great floor project, and the thought of repopulating the empty rooms with art and books makes me realize how we can afford to be choosy!

As sad as I am to send my son off to kindergarten, I am excited to do some de-cluttering and tackle some projects myself. It definitely improves my mood.
I hope it is a great year for your whole family!
