Out With The Old
I believe I've had
enough of 2013. Yes, there were good times, fun, and happy days.
But there was a lot more stress, sadness, and difficulty than usual
for me this year. I am determined to put all that behind me; to move
forward into 2014 with a clean slate.
To that end, I
have been cleaning house, both physically and mentally. Cleaning and
organizing my home puts me in a positive frame of mind. I function
better and feel more motivated when things are in order. Purging
things I no longer use or need gives me room to enjoy those that I
love. Eliminating clutter frees up time and space.
Tossing out old
thoughts and negativity clears my head and opens up space for
happiness and peace of mind. I'm keeping the lessons learned but
losing the difficult experiences. I'm hanging on to happy memories
but letting go of sadness. I'm steering away from negative people
and moving toward those who make my life better. I'm purging old
habits, excuses, and time wasters, so that I can be free to explore
These last few
days of 2013 are for clearing out the old, so I'll have space for
what comes in 2014. Here's hoping for a Happy New Year full of joy and laughter!
