I saw a quote today that was so spot on I’m going to let it stand on its own as my post for today.
It’s Spring and the windows are opening and the fresh air is flowing in. I pull out the spring/summer clothes and inevitably end up getting rid of lots of stuff. Today was no different. Not only was I going to turn over the clothing for the seasonal switch, but we entered the Whistlers room for….. yup, should I say it…. SPRING CLEANING.
Why is it that we continue to keep people in our lives that cause us grief, spread negative vibes and drag us down. I spent most of my life trying to keep everyone in my life happy. I felt completely responsible for keeping the peace. I felt required to organize and gather people together. I never asked myself do “I” really want to spend my time with them.
Yes, I attempted a radio silent weekend. Was I successful? Some may say no. Other will be impressed by my reduction in online presence. But was I really away? Offline? Hmmm it may have been an illusion. But whatever it was, it was just what I needed. The purpose of my weekend away was some one on one time with my Honey. COMPLETED!
There’s been a lot of journaling in my house this year. If you haven’t picked up the book or seen one of the movies about the series Diary of a Wimpy Kid you must have no contact with children. My son has been obsessed with this series. We have all the books and have even pre-ordered the up coming book due in November. We’ve seen both movies in the theater and now own them so they can be watched repeatedly. Sounds like nausium but in fact after I got over the horror of some of the brazen content in the series I realized that my son was dying to read these books. How can you beat that?
