"Half the joy of life is in little things taken on the run. Let us run if we must---even the sands do that- - -but keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us. And everything is worth its while if we only grasp it and its significance."...Victor Cherbuliez
I have found great joy today in organizing and de-cluttering. I read ONEKIDSMOM's blog this morning and she spurred me to free myself of the stress of my muddled-mayhem! I've got a long way to go, but worked on a hallway today, the dining room, and now am tackling the living room. In so doing, I've had the wonderful pleasure of reminiscing over many cards and letters my dear sister has sent me throughout the years. Oh, how grateful I am that I saved them! Granted, there were tears as I read those letters, but also many smiles as I reflected over confidences shared.
I'm on my way!! I will continue to de-clutter, organize, and get that stress out of my life. (I've already boxed-up items for Goodwill.) In accomplishing this, I will free myself to enjoy my home and free-up my spirit to enjoy those things that really matter.
As I lighten my home's load of clutter, I know that I will lighten-up, also, attaining those goals of health and well-being!
