Over the past several years I have been on a journey to simplifying my life. It has been a struggle to get there for several reasons, such as Family health issues, constant head aches, vertigo and a lot of stress with my job etc. I haven’t made it yet but I’ll get there.
I can’t believe how time is passing by so quickly and we are half way through 2016. I told my husband yesterday I really don’t know what I have accomplished in the past 6 months to reach my goal of simplifying my life.
Okay so I will tell the truth! I do know thing I haven’t done to reach my goal in the past 6 months. What I have been doing is lying on the couch, unmotivated sleeping, reading, watching tv, working on my blog, that is still in the beginning stages. I think back on the last 6 months and I am ashamed because, I have wasted so many hours that I can’t get back.
For now, my Mom is doing okay. She had two hospital stays this year and just came home from the hospital Sunday a week ago, my middle son has a job, my dizziness has been gone for the past few months.
I’m a registered nurse, I care for patients on a surgical trauma unit. I work 2 days a week so that stress will still be there for now.
I know that many of you have similar stressors going on in your life too.
Now that some of my stressors of life and all the ups and downs have calmed down. I am going to get back to the things I know that need to be done and the things I enjoy doing. Crafting LOL
While I am embarrassed to say I have been trying to accomplish this goal for many years and time has continued to march on and my goal never met. Now at the age of 61 I need to have a simple peaceful life. I have told my husband before that I should have been born in the simple era LOL.
I have taken the word Peace as my word for the rest of the year. In order to have peace in my life, I have to work on simplifying my life.
My Goal is to achieve a simple peaceful life.
My mission is to begin by de-cluttering every area of my life.
How am I going to achieve this Goal you ask?
One step at a time!
Be patient with my self!
Start by asking God to help me, then de-clutter each room in my home, by doing this it will help declutter my mind and soul.
