This week’s project was to clear out the clutter in my room and create space for a peaceful environment for myself. To also go through all my clothes and give away what I don’t wear. I made some progress but I didn’t do as well as I wanted to do. I am very attached to my things- even the things I don’t use or wear. It’s also such a big job, that I didn’t finish it so I am going to break my one week rule and keep it going for another week. To create a nice, organized, non-cluttered room is a lot of work and it gets messy before it gets cleaner which is depressing! But I want to make it feel like it’s my safe space and I want to love it. And for the most part…I do. It’s typically always “neat” and has a good vibe that I like…but there are piles of paper I need to go through and tons of clothes I don’t wear and lots of things I don’t use anymore in boxes under my bed that just can be cleared out. And since I’m in the process of getting rid of all the toxic things in my life, I feel like it goes along with my theme perfectly. There is no big realization or something hugely inspiring to write about this project that has hit me quite yet. So, I’ll just leave it at that for now and wait till the end of my second week of this project to share my in depth thoughts about it.
Since this journey is about making the most out of every day and learning from it and writing about it, I will leave you with a few things I learned this week. I’m warning you that I’m very delirious in this moment as I am on very little sleep from a busy schedule, so they aren’t deep nor are they profound- but it’s all I have left in me for the night and I needed to get my writing every Monday goal in. 🙂
1. Don’t order takeout Thai food when you want to get things done at night. It only causes procrastination and sleepiness.
2. It’s easy to lose count of your drinks when you are in the company of amazing people…It’s distracting. Beware.
3. Don’t wait to workout until the late evening…otherwise there will be no working out. Whatsoever.
That’s all I got. Ha! Now onto my second week of clearing out the clutter! Onward!
