Where did that come from?

Monday, January 21, 2013

Ewww, what is that about?

I've been working on organizing and getting rid of stuff that I/we don't want/need. Just now I was attempting to organize our bike gear cabinet in its new location. I put our helmets on the shelf, put my bag alongside my helmet, then looked at the 2 or 3 boxes of stuff that need to be sorted, when suddenly I got this weird [really negative, depressed, angry] feeling. All I could think about was I want to eat chocolate.

Ewwww, this is not good.

I'm not going to do eat the chocolate . . . but where did that come from anyway?

    The devil popped it in your mind to get you off track. But you made it through!

    Glad you managed to stay away from that chocolate and got yourself organized instead.

    Focus on the positive, have a small piece of chocolate if you must, but track it and stay the path. Spring cleaning no matter when it is done is like taxes. We do not want to do it, it must be done, and we often put it off to the last minute. emoticon on starting.

    I hate giving stuff up. Seems I have a sentimental attachment to everything.

    Sometimes you just need to be in "the mood" to get some serious organizing done. Have to decide to just dig in and go for it.

    A nutritionist told me once that we crave chocolate when we have a magnesium deficiency. I get anxiety from decision making, sorting boxes is decision making so your body is asking for support, LOL. I would give myself a tiny ration after each box, like 3 chips each or something. But I don't eat chocolate much, so not a trigger food. Glad you are thinking it through emoticon

    I am not a hoarder but grief kept me from sorting my portions of 3 different estates that arrived very close together. Plus the empty nest problem. I have the feeling "Everyone just left me here all alone with all this stuff" way too often. So I kinda get where you're coming from. As I'm emerging from the fog of mourning, it all seems overwhelming but NOW I'm gently reminding myself, "I'll figure it out".
