I think this blog needs a makeover. Yes a makeover. It is way too dark for how I am feeling. I am ready for some color! I mean everything in my life is about color...this blog should reflect that too!
I spent last weekend organizing my house. Cleaning up the clutter. I was listening to Peter Walsh on Oprah last week and what he said resonated with me. I began to think there is no success in clutter. If your home is cluttered your mind is cluttered. There can be no real success in the midst of clutter and mess. So I cleaned, sorted, purged. All of the public spaces are orderly. My bedroom is a sanctuary. Only thing left to do is the kid's rooms.
There is no other priority more pressing than making my home the place that I am at ease in. It is the place that replenishes my spirit. If my living space is a mess...then my life is a mess too. What is on my mind is reflected in my life. So as I am newly divorced I refused to let another day pass with a junky, messy, cluttered space. I was tired of the excuses for not cleaning and creating order. I was embarrassed to have to move things out of the way to find simple things. and then I had to think what message was I sending my kids. When shit falls apart we let everything fall apart? So Spring cleaning has commenced and I am happy when I wake up and come downstairs to a clean, orderly space.
Taking back one's life begins at home. Clearing my living space of clutter is the first step in clearing my mind of clutter. Success is invited in and has a place here. Success does not have to compete for space, nor is lost because of all the other mess.
