The new year is upon us. I did some reflecting the past week and discovered that 2009 was about clearing up a lot of stuff in my life. Well, I have realized that with a lot of those changes I had made last year it brought me a lot of new opportunities and promises for 2010. I really did not think that I had accomplished that much in 2009, but reflection proved me wrong! I have now come to realize that a lot of those difficult decisions and changes I made in the past year or so were necessary and were not that small! I cleared a lot of old stuff out of my apartment and in the process discovered that I also cleared up a lot of emotional, mental, and spiritual clutter. I also shed about 30 pounds (getting off the prednisone helped). I also cut a few unnecessary things out of my life that simply were not working for me. I had so much going on that I never realized how much this stuff bugged me! Getting rid of the physical clutter helped me see this and allowed me to make the more difficult decisions.
My husband and I also moved to a smaller apartment to save a good chuck of money. I am glad I cleared a lot of stuff out because if I didn't we might not have been able to fit all are stuff in the new place. The funny thing is that we have plenty of space and we have learned to live with a lot less stuff!
Well, here is to a whole new year of opportunity! I can't wait to see what discoveries I make about myself this year.
Happy New Year Everyone!
