There’s a pile in the nook area of my kitchen. We’ve designated this space as the place where things go that need to go–donations, recyclables, etc. It works out perfectly because it doesn’t take long before it becomes an eyesore which means that this spot is cleared quickly and often. Decluttering with intent has been a success thus far, and I’m amazed at my progress in such a short amount of time. With less stuff to clean, launder, and store means more rest, relaxation, and a calm mind. I love it here.

I’ve started writing resolutions/goals for the year. I plan to do things a little differently this year (a bit more gently) by using the entire month for the planning and then easing my way into the implementation. December was for resting. January is for resetting. And February–I’m going in. To me, this takes the pressure off, at least seemingly. 😀

Or maybe not seemingly.. because here I am at 6am on a Sunday and I’ve started a load of laundry; I’ve already taken my morning walk on my treadmill; and I’ve packed up the car to run my errands. Not to mention, I’ve gotten this blog out. Small wins are still wins.

    “Small wins are still wins.”
    A lovely maxim for the beginning of a new year.
