Finish What You Started
For some time now I have promised Ed I would clean out (although 50% is his) a small room that has collected lots of stuff that we don’t need anymore. I do believe for me it has much to do with anxiety and “getting rid of” has taken on a new meaning for me. I was able to get rid of excess weight, but why do I become mentally attached (that I don’t even use anymore) to certain things? Is it letting go of the past, or is it worrying about the future? It could also be my inability to make decisions (which is one of my astrological signs characteristics, that of a Libra) There are about 200 vinyl albums, books, magazines, baseball caps, purses, (with lots of old receipts) old furniture and so on. I started my project on Monday by taking a charming older table (that was a family piece) and breathing new life into it, hoping that this table will fan the fire for my quest to finish what I started out to do. It has taken two days (with me exercising, running and performing daily routine chores) to finish the stripping and painting of this table. My first step is complete and I do believe I can continue this endeavor with a less heavy heart and more promise of freeing myself from my insecurities and move forward. Are you holding onto the past? Are you fearful of taking an action or liberating yourself? This as well as my lifestyle is an ongoing struggle and I will do all of my best to face my fears and achieve my goals. I’ll let you know how I am progressing with updates so stay tuned my friends. Keep healthy and fit by finishing what you started!
