I’m having to take baby steps with this one, but I have now cleared off and organized the top of one bookshelf in my bedroom. It only has the essentials on it and looks very organized. The rest of my bedroom is still quite a mess, but at least one part of it looks good.
I’ll keep working on it to create a sanctuary of peace, one area at a time until the whole room is peaceful and serene.
Can’t have a sanctuary of any sort let alone a sanctuary of peace with all the clutter I have in my bedroom. I’ve begun going through the clutter and bagging up the stuff that I intend to throw out. I’m finally getting some momentum up now that I have cats living with me.
I’m glad for whatever motivation I can get, but I have to ask myself why I would clean up the clutter for my cats but not for myself. That doesn’t seem right. I should value myself and my happiness more than I do.
Okay, in light of the enormity of this task I have decided to start small by clearing off the surface of a 3’x3’ table that I have in my bedroom and restore it to my original purpose for it. That is to hold and burn candles. It used to look very serene and I am determined to make it that way again. Hmmm, maybe I better not burn the candles again until I clear away the clutter next to the table, too.
I expect it will take awhile to accomplish this goal as my bedroom is currently more of a disaster area than a sanctuary of peace. I am prepared to take this one step at a time, though.
