Happy New Year!
This past year has been full of extremes. What I mean by that is that I had days full of adventure and travels and days of boredom and melancholy. I started the year with health issues that affected my workouts. I spent way too much time on social media instead of enjoying my surroundings. I really felt like I lost a year when it came to daily productivity. Which then affected how I viewed my world. My gratitude was skewed for lack of a better word. I was like a three-year-old, knowing what the right thing to do is and deciding to do the opposite, just because I could. The whole year flew by and I felt I had nothing to show for it.
To recharge my battery, I finally decided to take those pesky vitamin supplements that I always avoided despite taking the time to fill up the weekly pill boxes. I eliminated sodas completely. I continue to eat clean and exercise. I completed my annual checkup with my doctor and started reading books again.
My first project to make my home clutter free and organized is to tackle all the greeting cards I have received over the years. I won't call myself a hoarder, however, I do find it very difficult to throw out cards, birthday, mothers' day, holidays, etc. You get the picture.
I began with holiday cards. I plan on hanging these on my staircase for the family to view. I had a great time looking at all the family holidays cards we have received over the years. I love the cards with family pictures and blurbs on what happened that year.
I'm hoping that all who read this have a fabulous new year. For those who sent us cards this year, a heartfelt thank you for thinking of us.
