With spring in the air, snow God Willing behind until next fall/winter, my thoughts today are about renewal. Over the past months of winter I've been slowly, some times procrastinating, to de-clutter my home, thus my life. My interests are two fold, first(unusual putting me first) to promote a better space for my head, clutter removed in my home to create more growth for change...letting go of the past...keeping what I love, giving away what I don't use and throwing away what is broken and unusable(hung on to these due to emotional attatchements), thus my hope is with the old out, my life will be more open to new.
The next reason, also to do with me, my health. I'm not certain how much longer I want/need to stay in my home. There is considerable upkeep outside, inside I can deal with. And finally, since my son has Aspergers, there is No Way I want to leave him with the daunting task should anything happen to me...he just would not be able to physically or mentally handle closing a house.
With the onset of spring also comes the renewal of the outside which consumes my life...I love being outdoors. I've many areas in my town where there are outside activities, swimming, and just sitting for watching people on side walk cafe's. I plan on doing these activities, as well as continue with the senior center, self care and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.
Along with the changes, I decided a bit ago to bring my computer upstairs to avoid the never ending 'pull' and avoid easy access. I have wants for the next coming months, finishing decluttering my now not so horrid room upstairs, then the porch and garage next. Following those being completed, repairs and painting of rooms. My gardens, Way Too Many :) will also take much time. I've decided to leave ds until the fall, as this is as much of a time consuming trap as are the computer games.
I thank you all for your comments, and grateful support. I wish you all well with your journey to becoming 'more of you' as I too will become more of 'me' and less caught up in my dear son's antics and other people's lives...neither is mine to fix.
Take good care, ml
*disclaimer: I posted this to another group, but I think it may be more suitable in this one*I cannot tell you how excited I am to find this site. It's hard to deal with difficult family members as it is, but it's especially hard when all your friends and other family members are either tired of hearing about it, or don't get it. So, long story short, my mother drives me nuts. She's extremely...
