Now is the time of year when people dust off or drag out those tired resolutions and swear to lose 20 lbs., write every day, be a kinder, gentler mother, daughter, co-worker or human being. Now, I'm not dissing any of those noble intentions but I've learned that resolutions don't work for me. Life is too fluid to have something like a RESOLUTION hanging over my head. It makes me feel like I'm walking under baby grand piano that's being lifted to a second story apartment. And you know how that ends--SPLAT!
Too messy for me. And my world is messy enough, thank you. So my sincere hope this year is to simplify.
I've realized at this late stage that I don't need it all. And I certainly can't do it all, so I am recycling, reorganizing, donating and yes...dumping stuff. Old stuff that I never used. New stuff that I thought I might need but don't. Oh, I had good intentions. I did! But the road to hell isn't paved with intentions people, it's paved with stuff!! George Carlin had it right all along!!!
I meant to become the queen of scrapebooking right after I learned to knit, started (and finished) that quilt, and conquered the art of making homemade bread from scratch. (No breadmachine for this lady.)
It's time to get over it.
Many things are worth keeping--things like friendships, a positive attitude, hugs and kisses. But beanie babies? Mismatched gloves? Old textbooks from college? Er...no.
With a little bit of luck, I might be able to finally get my linen closet closed!
So got any tips for me? Post them! Cause I'm all ears!
