Happy 2012! It seems that all the bloggers have chosen a word for the year. Mine was easy to pick. I knew my "stuff" was disorganized and in need of purging, but the act of moving from a three bedroom house with a shed and two-car garage into a two bedroom apartment highlighted the problem in bold! Since starting my new job in November, my stress level has dropped down into normal levels and I feel like I actually have the time and energy to get it together.
Sunday I got started in my closet and the photo above shows the progress. First of all, I could actually open the door wide enough to even take a picture! Second, what the photo doesn't show you is the giant load I dropped off at Goodwill Sunday afternoon.
So, in addition to this kind of order, I will also be working on internal order. The kind that will find healthy ways to deal with challenges instead of looking for the nearest drivethru!
In the months following my separation and before my divorce I wrote a post about "The Land of Stability". Folks, I think I've arrived! And I'm ready (at last!) to unpack my bags!
