Creating a whole new world right outside my frontdoor.
Saturday, November 03, 2012
My sister and I have just recently come in contact with an old friend who we had grown away from over the years and have practically found somebody who we both really enjoy haveing in our lives and never realised just how much we both missed her and now that she is back in our life the whole 3 of us girls have felt as if a fresh breath of air has come into our lives and we have gotten back some of our spark. She's only been back in our life for 3 months max and already things have been so much better for everyone of us and you can really see the differance in our attitude because there is so much more supportive influences that was an immeadiate improvement to our happiness and now that we are back in each others lives there will be more and more for us to improve. This is the one who gave us the incentive to start fixing the house and she is the one who is going to be the driving force behind our garden makeover, whenever we go over to her place my sister and I both get so much enjoyment when we go outside and just sitting in her backyard makes you feel so much more relaxed and knowng that she did the whole thing herself for next to nothing gives me so much more of an incentive to get started on mine, especially since she loves gardening and has pretty much ordered us to fix ours. With her expertise there is no way I'm going to let this opportunity slip away, especially since the plans to redecorate this place has finally started to take shape. We have been living here for so long now and let our surroundings fall into the same mess that our bodies did and now that my sis has lost all her weight and found a job after 10 years and is on a good path its time for me to take this as my own tranformation time. Getting this new furniture and makeing a start with the living area on my 41st birthday and striveing to prepare the dining area for its new look over this next month or so is such a massive change already that I will not let slip back into its former standards and the new way forwards for me is to finish this area first then move straight to another room in the house thats in need of an improvement. And like I said in the earlier blog I intend on doing the garden step by step exactly the same way. We have both become so unhappy living here that its no wonder things became as out of control as they did, and now we have our best friend back in our life the outlook isnt so daunting anymore. With the good vibes I get whenever I'm in Lyndsey's garden I finally realise there is a whole new world for me to spend time everyday that will eventually bring me as much enjoyment and selfpride in my home and its been right outside my front door the whole time. To get the first part of the frontyard finished will give us all such a boost and another place in this house for me to spend time looking after and give myself something new to give all the extra time Ive wasted over so many years. Ive lived my last decade hideing away from myself and the world sitting on that lounge and living with the most filthy untidy environment thats just as neglected and unkempt as the gardens without any kind of will or incentive to make any effort to clear away this clutter and rubbish we both became accustomed to and never even tried to fix, until now that is because when I made that promise on my birthday to get some order to this environment I call my house, I was ready and willing to do something about it and spent the next 3 or so hours of the night clearing away all the clutter and gave the lounge area the first transformation in ages and by the time I'd finished that first session I was so happy with the results and even this small change had given this whole area a new vibe that was the start of a week spent improveing one place at a time makeing the living area into a place that no longer resembled the sad and sorry looking area we had become so used to seeing everyday.
Now that the challenge is set for the first section of our front garden and we have began clearing and cleaning away all the stuff in that spot already I am going to get the garden sorted and make that first step in the right direction, and get the entryway completed within the next month so were keeping both the inside and outside area's of this house on the same agenda's with the dining area and the entryway our first challenge to be completed side by side. The sooner we get this first part of the yard finished the sooner I could make myself get more of an incentive to move around each day and tend to the small area's inside and out instead of sleeping away most of the day then spending all my wakeing hours sitting in front of that tv.
