I talked yesterday about how I am a messy person, that makes today kind of interesting. Today, I take the time to do some house cleaning, and also do some cooking for the first time in a long time. That in itself will perpetuate more cleaning.
My room is constantly full of boxes from amazon. I leave them sitting next to my trash can and very suddenly it is overflowing. I have done absolutely nothing to remedy this. I also have tons of clothes spilling out across the floor. I need to make some changes today.
The first thing I’m going to do is break down all the Amazon boxes. I have probably seven or eight, plus the plastic bubbles that they have in there as well. They take up more space than they need to. They’ll get put in our dining room so that they can be taken out with the rest of the recycling. I also need to physically take out all the garbage. That’ll keep things settled for toss it Tuesday.
I do need to take it slightly further than the prompt for the day allows. I need to clean up parts o the mess involved in my personal circle. I need to fold all my clothes. I need to clean of my bed. I need to do the dishes. All of these things will not take much time, but I just need to sit down and do them.
This week is all about accepting your mess, but getting rid of the things that clutter your life. I’m taking this as a very large physical aspect as you can see it above. The emotional aspects don’t need looking at. Most of the things actually in my life are good things right now emotionally. I just need to clean up the physical aspects of my ‘temple’ or the world of my personal space.
I should probably make sure I clean under my bed specifically. I haven’t look under there for ages. I also need to make sure that I get a workout ready so I can settle into it this week. That’s what accepting the mess and tossing it today is all about.
This healthier me in 2018 begins today. And it will begin again every day. That’s one of the things that I need to accept. Every day something new is going to try to deter me. More messes are going to happen. I am going to have to step up and learn how to move past those things. I need to meet them head on and actually attack them with the ferocity that I attack a day of writing.
I hope that everyone else out there is actually having as good and positive new year. I got my teeth fixed. I’m getting my writing done. I made food for my roommate and myself. Today is moving along incredibly well, and I hope the rest of the year follows in these footsteps. I just gotta keep up the good work and don’t fall behind.
