I needed to find something and I took this opportunity to go trough some of my stuff and sort it. I think I was on it for about 1 hour. It didn’t feel hard. It felt good and satisfying. What helped me was the memory of a feeling of being on the top of things. It felt very empowering, very rooted and ready. I want to have this feeling more often. Why not most of the time?

It wasn’t hard, even though at some point – very beginning I was feeling inpatient – wanted it to be over in 15 min. But I know I made my bed: at some point couples of years ago I tried to establish a habit of putting things from my bag and pocket away. I managed at beginning and then I just put all paper together without looking much at it. If I start this habit again it will make my life so much easier. Need to thing of an easy system.
For now 45 min is over and I have the job done for today.
Bigger chunk is touched; I’m realising that only sorting things out don’t make me too emotional. I can do it :)
OMG, I just touched the thing. That’s the problem for me – it takes ages to de-clutter. But then again, how easy it was for me to spend 45 min on watching TV-shows and I didn’t complain, lol.
At least for now I will have a long term satisfaction of being on the top of things. I let myself procrastinate in the past, that’s my biggest issue here. Things I will have to catch up with. ugh…
I’m petrified, but also encouraged. I’ll spend next 15 min dealing with the most immediate paper mixed with some other stuff, that I just put away yesterday in order to tidy my room. Okay, keep your fingers crossed for me. Paper, here I come! LOL
I feel it’s such an important goal and it can help me to move foreword in life, even though it doesn’t look like such a big deal. Or maybe it does? I do have the time right now, one month to start studding…
Once again: baby steps darling :)
I used to do it before, 15 min at the time, it felt good. The only thing I usually stumble upon is paper clutter. I should take it easy I guess.
I believe I’ll need people to help me with that as I find it really challenging, but hey, I’m finding help already: the CodA meetings, counselling, evolutionary partnership…
I do have resources. It only takes persistence and focus now.
