By now you are thinking about the new year. 2011. And making plans. Jotting them down.
At the top of most lists is probably Weight Loss.
I know it is at the top of mine. I always say, “by the end of the year, I want to be so many pounds lighter.” Does it happen? Usually not. Maybe just a pound or two. Frustrating!!
But there are other ways to get “lighter” without the frustration. You don’t only have to focus on your body.
What about the clutter here and there? Look around.
I did. I looked ALL around me. And saw many things just taking up space. Things others could be wearing, sharing and caring about.
I already go into “reorg mode” several times a year. Spring Cleaning, Switching Out Summer Clothes To Fall, Donating To Charity Before Year’s End. But this year I plan to step it up. Go lean throughout the year.
It will be hard to let go of some things… not being used, collecting dust and falling into the antique category.
But… I have my box ready.
To fill with Things To Toss By The End of 2011.
Instead of obsessing on losing weight, I am just going to say I want to be more active. More organized. And maybe the “pounds” lighter will happen as a result.
Is your box ready?
(And don’t forget the clipboard. You will need a list of donated items for your tax preparer.)
