TRYING TO GET RID OF CLUTTER

Today’s topic is CLUTTER..getting rid of the clutter surrounding you. Well – I did manage to do that before writing this post – I actually cleared out my computer area/desk…you may not think that is much – however – there was enough stuff to fill a large rubbermaid tub. OMG – that felt great – however – this morning when I finally fell asleep – both my hunnie and my daughter needed to use my computer – my hunnie to read his email because his puter is out for the count – and my daughter needed to print some project of hers (she has a puter but printer is not hooked up-she lost the CD to it) and when I finally woke up – my computer again is covered in clutter – and neither of them seemed to be concerned. It is driving me nuts. I cannot use chemicals to help clean in general – heck I cannot even walk from here to the kitchen without running out of breath – but I finally felt good to clear out something – to clean something and you would never know it from looking at it…I will work on de-cluttering it again….and then I plan on working on the rest of the room of which of course they keep adding garbage and it is suffocating me.

When my desk was free from clutter – it felt good – felt free – I even have a candle near me that I keep putting in new white votive candles in to make it a peaceful area for me (thanks to scaredsuzie for that tip) – well the hunnie decided to put a box of medicine on top of that because he wanted to put his coffee mug where I had the medicine at. Very frustrating….really!!!!

My life has too much clutter which I think that is why I hold up in one room also – but slowly things are getting done. Being a packrat is a very hard habit of letting go of – and I am Queen Packrat (it was even a nick name that was given to me). Right now – I will do what I can do and get rid of clutter one step at a time – from small things like my purse – to my one shelf near my puter – to my puter desk – to my four shelves near my recliner – to my puter room – taking things one step at a time!

I want to thank you all who have dropped by and left very encouraging comments – makes my heart smile!!
**as a side note – I am following through on my praying – have already lifted up some prayers for others (none for myself) made my soul happy!!

This is my Day 4 of Soul Coaching and NaBloPoMo…PEACE!!

A COMMITMENT

I wanted to start off by saying that for some reason – I wrote yesterday’s blog entry in the afternoon and it shows today’s date – which makes it look like I missed a day with my NABLOPOMO but I did not…I have no idea how to fix that – but I just wanted to say it for the record -(edit–fixed the date thingy-relieved) ANY WHO—-

Today’s soul coaching point is COMMITMENT…making a commitment to do something that adds to your life or to stop doing something that has been taking away from your life. Well I think I have done that commitment step by a huge margin because I quit smoking at the beginning of the year. Just did not want it anymore – really did not suffer from withdrawals (strange) but so glad it is out of my life. Just as a side note – the smoking did not help my health issues but it had NOTHING to do with my health issues…HOWEVER the commitment I do want to make is praying… it may not seem like much – or may not show an effort – but I am finding out something so very interesting about praying. When there are others that ask for prayers – I immediately pray for their needs and miracously – the situation is resolved (health-money-relationships-whatever-etc) Now I am finding I do not have the same results for myself. I do not know why – I know that intercessory prayer is meant for others – I am sure this is a road I am suppose to take on a regular basis – doing it everyday – make that commitment – I know this will bring about positive changes in my life – I just have to give it a chance.

I think in giving it a chance – then my prayers, my concerns, my “needs” will be met. At least that is the message I am getting deep in my soul. The world could always use a few more prayers!!

I think some commitments are very difficult to keep – but I really want this one bad – I think it is too easy to commit to things that you have to do already in one’s life – especially for me – so this one is important!
