I have felt this overzealous need to reduce the amount of stuff in my life for a long time. Maybe forever. I've just never needed a lot of material possessions to be happy. In fact, less for me has always meant more in terms of feeling peaceful and content. But then, I've never been all … Continue reading Christmas Makes Me Want to Downsize
I don't want to write about last week -- schedules, lists, progress, because I'm not feeling that great about it. But I think it's important for my own accountability, as well as to acknowledge that parts of it actually did go well -- especially considering how busy we were with Halloween festivities. Summary of last … Continue reading Snippets From Last Week Along With a Better Plan for This One
I wrote down my tentative plan and list since I learned last week that if I can't see it, I'll do whatever I feel like in the moment. Lots of gaps, but it's something. At least it's on paper -- and now here. Thank you, readers, for serving as my life coach. I'm sleepy. But … Continue reading Tomorrow’s Plan
I've wanted to post an update, but I've been doing my best to stay focused on my work the past two days. I'll try to sum up the highpoints. The Good: -- I've gotten up every day this week at 5:30 and exercised. This is huge for me -- not so much the exercising but … Continue reading Still Plugging Away . . .
This will have to be quick. I am zonked. I did it. I got up at 5:30, did a little cardio, some weights and cooled down with yoga. It felt amazing. Yes, I'm one of those crazy people who LOVES a good sweaty workout. Getting up with a plan was easy, plus I had made … Continue reading Success? Somewhat, I Think — Minus That One Little Flake
My previous post touched on the why. Now I'm going to set my schedule and fill in accordingly. Again, working my stuff out on this blog. The biggie here is that I've reached a point where I do not want to get out of bed in the morning. I think it's a bad case of … Continue reading Can I Really Do a 5:30 Wake-up?
Prepare yourself, friends. Here comes another I gotta get my life together post. I need accountability and since I have none of that in my real life, I'm using this blog. I'm overwhelmed and at that point where I'm just sitting -- staring at the piles and trying to settle my brain and decide what … Continue reading Revamping My Schedule
I rarely do these, but today it felt right. The following is my response to The Daily Prompt, because didn't every girl who grew up in the eighties want a waterbed? “You absolutely can not have a waterbed, and I don’t want to hear another word about it.” I had received my father’s ultimatum, and … Continue reading Tales From the Teen Years: The Waterbed
So…in an effort to get more organized as well as prepare to move in the next year, I’m employing this daily strategy.
I like that it’s catchy, memorable, and seems simple enough even for my disorganized, live-in-the-moment crowd.
I am not a naturally neat person. I tend to hold on to stuff and make a mess wherever I go. I leave things out after I’m done using them. You can tell where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing by the trails I leave behind. If I brush my teeth there is a 90% chance the cap will not make it back to the toothpaste. When I take off my shoes they tend to stay wherever that event occurred. Jackets and sweaters could be on the back of chairs or on the couch. I leave kitchen cabinets and closet doors wide open after I have found what I was looking for. I mean to put stuff away and close what I’ve opened but I get involved in other things and forget. I’m not chronically disorganized but I have far more in common with the sloppy than the neat.
