Two short days until I must go back to reality. I've spent two weeks and three days trying to get my balance back ... trying to find myself amidst the "stuff" of my life ... trying to establish boundaries once more.
In two short days, I could be off and running with my new habits ...
I could witness the wheels falling off and go spinning off into the pucker brush.
It's a 50-50 kinda thing, y'all.
As I look around my house, there are pockets of STUFF that still need to be cleaned up. There are certain areas of improvement to be made. I mean, my office. We shall not mention that space in my house. Because oh my goodness all the stuff ... alllllllll the stuff.
Why is there always a dumping ground for all the stuff in my house?
Clearly, this question ... this one right above here ... this begs the BIGGER question: Why do I still have all that stuff?
It's a learning curve, y'all. It's a learning curve.
But as I look back, I have been successful at creating some habits. I've been successful at attempting to make a space that is much more comfortable for me and The Cat ... lest we forget The Cat. Not that she would let any one forget her, mind you.
I am going to take these last few days to really soak up myself ... the things I love to do the best ... I am going to enjoy some fun ... and enjoy the simple pleasures in life ... like the simple pleasure of the first drips of coffee as it hits the pot while its brewing.
I am going to enjoy the sun peaking from behind the clouds ... I will enjoy the lavender lilacs attempting to bloom despite the subzero temperatures. I will attempt to take none of this life I have been given for granted. I am going to try to participate more and observe less.
I have uninstalled Facebook on my phone.
I have decided to read more and watch TV less.
I am going to listen to more radio ... listen to people more ... just listen more.
Oh yes, the idea of making lunches every. single. day. makes me want to crawl into a ball and hide. But, it is all part of it.
I am heading back to reality with a renewed sense of self and some strengthened boundaries and a "I think I can" attitude....
