Well I’m back after a long day at work. So came home, and went to pick up my birthday goodies that I treated myself to last week. And then, I sat down and did some meditation. It feels a little weird only because I haven’t done it in so long. But it feels good that I started back on it. I’m still writing in my gratitude journal every morning when I get up and it feels good to see all the things that I am grateful for that day or that month, whether it is the same thing or something different. For instance, for the past few weeks here, it has been COLD. But I was thankful for having a big puffy coat to keep me warm at the bus stop, and coming home to a warm house everyday. But then, that also got me thinking about those who don’t have heat or running water, or even a home to go to.
So for my birthday and the day after (and still to continue on this week) I’ve been going through everything that I haven’t used or gently used and have put it aside. Then Mom and I said that we would donate it to either Goodwill or Salvation Army, or even convince our church to have a place for the homeless during these harsh times. Yeah, I knew I had a lot of stuff that I did want to get rid of, but for the most part, I want it to be put to good use by someone who will actually use it. At the time, I thought I was going to use some of those things, now they are ALL in the heaping pile downstairs on my living room floor, waiting to be sorted and organized for their new homes.
Plus, I said I wanted to try and live a happy content life with the things that I have for 2018. Why not start now? I think I’ll go on the Hoopla app and find some good audiobooks on cleansing and decluttering while I’m cleaning up my room tonight. A girl’s work is never done. And just wanted to leave you guys that cute food for thought up there also. Hope you guys like it.
