I imagine that was a catchy title, but it is a true one. As I was responding to a 's status feed it hit me that I must say "Good-Bye". Good-bye to what? The old habits of the old me. One of my notorious habits was being a clutter bug. Stuff all over the place. Throughout my childhood my mom would get so frustrated with my untidy room and would try different things to get me to clean. Even in my home she would actually (yes before you read this I know I am spoiled rotten), but she would actually give up her day to clean my house. I would come home and just love how I could see the beautiful hardwood floors so clean and shiny and the counter tops and furniture clear, and I thought to myself I've got to keep it this way. It was a nice thought, but it wasn't long before those clear floors, counter tops and furniture where filled with stuff.
So this HAD to go onto the 'I Can't Go Back' list. Now I'm in week 12 and there has been such an improvement. For weeks now I've been getting my cleaning points. I love how I can see the floors, furniture and counter tops because I cleared them and and keeping them that way. I also love being at to cook, sit and just live without having to shift things here and there. I even impressed my mom!
So good-bye old messy me and hello new clean me.
It can only get better from here. Who knows maybe I'll reach the cleaning skills of my mother!!
