Just Don¡¦t Ask Why or How

Friday, January 18, 2013

My Day: The readers of my blog are going to think I¡¦ve totally lost it or I¡¦m making it up. You can¡¦t make this stuff up.

Day 3 of Positive thinking as described by The Secret. I started listing the things I am grateful for, in my audio journal on the way to work. I also continued positive thinking throughout the day¡K I am happy, I am prosperous, I am healthy, etc. I listed the things I really want in my life, in my audio journal on the way home from work.

Remember yesterday how I said that the mailbox had always been a stressor for me? It¡¦s the surprise in it. It¡¦s that feeling that nothing good ever comes? So, I put a positive spin on it and kept thinking MONEY! LOL!

This morning I get a text from my daughter. Without getting too much into it, a bill is going to be reduced that will give her comfort and relief (MONEY)¡K which makes me very happy!

This afternoon, after months of battle with my bank over a bill and an amount we felt was owed to us, it was reduced and we will probably receive a refund. (MONEY!)

By the way, there was nothing in the mailbox today ļ

Now all of this may just be coincidence but I have to admit that I felt great the entire day; like I could conquer the world. It also seems strange given I¡¦m getting over the flu. The Power of Positive Thinking Prevailed!

My Diet:
I¡¦m getting back on track since having the flu this week. I haven¡¦t really logged my food all week nor have I exercised. I have been spinning the wheel and doing the other Spark goals I set for myself. I¡¦m going to weigh in tomorrow. I¡¦m expecting to see a plus sign where a minus sign should be but it¡¦s not the end of the world. I will attain my goal weight.

My Resolution:
Yesterday I chose a drawer in my desk for the 15 minute declutter. It expanded to an hour and 4 drawers. Did I really need paystubs from 2004? Checks from a checking account long since closed? I¡¦m motivated to finish the other two drawers tonight.

FlyLady Friday is clean out your purse, briefcase and car. Done. Today is clean the baseboards in the guest bathroom. I did that and all the baseboards in the house a few days ago¡K. Except behind the toilets (Ugh) so I¡¦ll do those tonight.

My sink is shiny, I know what¡¦s for dinner tonight, the Mount Washamore is being tended to and I¡¦m emptying the dishes in the dishwasher. Just like routine clockwork and no more stress!
Saturday is ¡§Family Fun Day.¡¨ This girl is going to have fun decluttering. I have a massive list that I want to complete. Oh and Bless the House, too. Who knew you could literally clean your home in less than an hour? It can be done, I proved it last week!

I¡¦ve rambled on long enough ¡K time to hit the ground running again!

    I have found quite a bit of change. A week ago, I collected some old jewelry and took it to the pawn shop. I was shocked when they gave me $170!

    Like you, it has helped me gain some clarity. I seem to have a bit more time now as well, to do things that I enjoy .... like blogging :)

    Decluttering will also help you to attract more things you want. It always helps me gain clarity! Sometimes after I clear a lot of stuff out I either make money or find money I didn't know I had! One time I found a gift card and 50.00 in change!
