It is the beginning of January 2010...
The number sounds especially auspicious to me this year. Like we should be making plans for world peace efforts and calculating space travel activities or throwing an international parade or something.
A new year is like a fresh new canvas, several artist bloggers have remarked. Yes, and I wonder what will be painted upon mine?
Like you, there are so many things to do in so many arenas of my life.
My list is long, and my time runs out.
I wish. Hmm…Let's see:
~Seeking God’s Will would be first, to ensure everything else is successful.
~People and art would be next.
~Animals would be in there somewhere.:-)
Gee, it sounds so simple when you put it like that!
Several blogger-friends have a word to focus upon for the new year instead of resolutions.
Perhaps my word could be SIMPLIFY.
The list above is simple and seemingly stress-free. And Honey, I desperately need stress-free.
I wonder if I can simplify my work at school to alleviate stress there..?
I’m working towards simplifying things at home already.
So, for you, I'll share my Christmas preparation/cleaning method in three words:
1) Throw out. (Yes, 2 words, but more aggressive than "toss" :-)
“Throw out” means giving it to our local thrift store for sales that benefit our local Hospice.
“Purpose” means making sure the remaining object has a purpose for taking up precious space in my life.
“Place” means finding a place that is convenient and unobtrusive.
OK, it probably lets out the plans for space travel and an international parade but...SIMPLIFY is my word. What's yours?
Love & Laughter, (and a stress-free 2010 to all my precious blogging friends)
