Take Out the Trash – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 75

De-Cluttering

What happens when you don’t take out the trash or allow things to just accumulate?  After a while, it starts to stink, you can’t conentrate, and it takes over.  It”s all consuming and nothing gets done.  It’s downright nasty.


Life is full of lessons and affirmations.  Fore me, I care too much.  I care about others and making sure they are well, happy, thriving.  Sometimes it can backfire because I care more than the individual.  When someone doesn’t “get it” or decides to continue down their current path, what I need to do is learn to love and relase them.  I’m getting better, slowly, but I am getting better at this.

This whack over the head “a-ha moment” took place this week.  Someone decided to go down a different path, and that is something I cannot change.  The only thing I am in charge of is my reaction to things.  When I don’t let things get to me and realize to dig below the surface, things will be fine.  Take what I need, throw away the rest, learn from it and move on.

What this week has taught me is that people change, they go sideways, and may never take the same path you’re taking.  All I can do is love them, release them and move on.  Taking out the trash, getting rid of the clutter and making room for something better.  When you get rid of the excees dead weight and allow the right people and things into your life, it’s amazing what happens.

Just Keep Swimming – 100 Day Blog Challenge Day 15

Just Keep Swimming


With each character I type, I cringe at the thought that my laptop may freeze up on me again.  not really sure what’s going on, but for the past couple days, my lovely “companion” has been acting up. I’ve done system checks, defragment, disk cleanup and backed up my files.  Still, my laptop is not feeling well, so I am typing as quickly as I can my thoughts for today, hoping and PRAYING it doesn’t go bonkers.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…

Today, the boys were quite the handful and this was a lovely uphill battle.  I’m not sure

how I’m going to handle the teenage years!!!  At some point, the toilet decided it wasn’t going to flush anymore.  One simple little part has worn off and I have to wait until tomorrow to get the part.  So until then, it’s literally a manual flush every time.  I may very well end up in an insane asylum.

Breathe…breathe…just keep swimming, just keep swimming…


Anyhow, not trying to be a Debbie Downer here, but today is definitely one of those days where I could use a Fast Forward.  Not sure if I want to Rewind because I don’t think I want to relive the day.  But, I realize I need to let it go and move on, which can sometimes be my weakness.  

Breathe in, breathe out…

Ahh, MUCH better!!!

I could definitely use a getaway right about now.  For some reason, Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away” comes to mind.  I think I’ll play it for a bit and dance around my living room.  That might do the trick.  Besides, he’s awesome Eye Candy.

Hmmm, I’m starting to feel better already.

So far, so good on the computer, but, I’m not gonna take any chances.
