I'm taking an online class to help motivate me to organize my home and my life. Here is part of my homework this week:
My Motivation Statement:
I walk through my house and feel a sense of peace.
I know where everything is.
I can see, and enjoy, my “treasures”.
Cleaning involves routine dusting, vacuuming, mopping, etc.
There is no sense of embarrassment if someone comes by without calling.
There are chairs that are clear to sit on.
A sink that’s clean.
A table that only needs to be set for the meal.
I feel no guilt if I want to sit and read or sew.
My home-life is as focused and runs as efficiently and routinely as my professional life.
I have time to enjoy my life.
I enjoy time with my family.
Pretty clear isn't it, when you actually write it down?
I also donated two bags of clothing to a friend's clothing drive, a huge bag of clothing (including an "extra" winter coat I had and two sweatshirts and sweatpants that I had replaced with colors I like better) and other household stuff to the Salvation Army, two large boxes of books were donated also, as were all my miscellaneous serving pieces and dishes that I no longer use (or have room for). The books came off of the shelves pictured. Amazing!
