You can't make progress if you don't start somewhere. I said that it was time to make a change. Time to clear some of the clutter that has been dragging me down. Well, as much as I could tell you about it, I thought it made even more sense to show you. These are the before and after pictures of my dreaded kitchen shelf. It was so exhilarating to finally organize it. And mostly to purge the unnecessary items taking space and draining the energy out of my house. This took up most of my Saturday. But for hard work there is a reward. My in-laws unexpectedly picked up the kids, which allowed me and hubby for some overdue alone time. We finally got to knock some of those movies off of the DVR. And as great as my Saturday turned out, I had an even better Sunday. I was spiritually fed by the wonderful Rachael Miller of Color Me Organized and the lovely ladies of Women Empowering Women. I am now better armed to pursue my purpose with a passion and I am beginning with cleaning my house, literally. No need to be ashamed when unexpected company comes, let;s be prepared. With all the chaos of everyday life, one could ask how? Well, I'll be honest...I'm still figuring it out. I'm a mom. I'm tired. And honestly, not that well motivated to clean (I'm transparent too). But, I am also a believer and a dreamer. And frankly, I am better. And everyday I aim to make little steps with a lot of support. You can do it too!
