Today I started what I hope to be my week of Spring Cleaning. I cleaned the windows in the master bedroom, cleaned the master bathroom, removed all of the shoes in our closet, vacuumed and packed them neatly again while taking out pairs I know I won’t wear again to give to goodwill. I plan to go around the apartment and do at least 3 major things every day until I’m done. It will be hard but this needs to be done as we may be moving in the Summer, and I need to start getting rid of crap before. I like to hold onto paper stuff but I can easily get rid of shoes and clothes that I know I will no longer wear. It’s a process but I like to think that at least I’m not hoarding everything.
This morning I started my day with a glass of lemon water. I want to try this for the week and see if I notice a difference. I’m trying my best to not eat flour whenever possible which I attempted last week and saw a noticeable difference. I also need a detox for all of the alcohol I’ve been consuming socially recently! I’m putting a stop to that as I really need to make sure my diet is in order as I’ll no longer be training with a personal trainer at the end of next week. I want to do this on my own and be proud of my achievements. De-cluttering of body, mind and surroundings is something I need to achieve by the end of this month to move forward peacefully. I normally have an idea at the beginning of the year what the year would involve and those plans came in late but I want to be ready for everything that comes my way. And now that I know what is in store, I want to be able to not have to stress about my diet and exercise and whether or not I come home to a clean house.
“The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.” Abraham Lincoln
Amen to that! One day at a time is all I need right now, and all I can look forward to. Even though I get caught up in planning ahead, at least I know that the future only gets closer one day at a time and that’s the only way to tackle every obstacle that heads my way…
