Fabulous Friday

Friday, May 03, 2013

Becoming more determined to be careful what I read, watch and put into my computer (brain) We become what we listen to what we read...negative stuff in...negative stuff out of us. Been working on my attitude and what we take in and those we interact with affect our state of well being. We fill our minds with the negative news on TV and we become negative about the world and ourselves.

Garage sale going well. Hubby seems to do well at them and he is manning it himself. He sold an old couch of my dad's we had stored in the basement, and old big TV, a wheelchair and lots of miscellaneous stuff. Praying we get rid of most of the "stuff". Hard for hubby to part with things...but if he's selling it - he seems able to let it go more easily. Been keeping int he habit of having an annual or two garage sales a year and it's helped to lessen our stock pile of "stuff" and easier to get hubby to part with stuff. We had a basement full of our parents stuff. We got rid of a bunch when we were closing down their homes but saved some of the better stuff to use or sell at a later time. Finally we have sold most of the bulky things. We still have more to go...but slowly...just like getting into better shape...we are mking better changes and lessening the load of trying to take care of all the "stuff". Don't get me wrong we have a long way to go yet...but I can see headway. For right now the wedding is making us (hubby) declutter and get rid of things...wonder what we can use for the next decluttering????

Off to make it a fabulous friday!

    I just finished up a big project like that. Feels so good not to have to constantly move things out of the way in the storage closet to get to something we use. Such a positive thing to do.

    I hear you on the negative news etc. We quit listening to the late night news. Doesn't it seem like the reporters and stations are so consumed with getting ratings that they overdo and sensationalize everything?
