I literally stood in the centre of my garage today and felt overwhelmed again. I’ve taken stuff out there over the past few weeks ‘in a rush’. I’m happy that it’s not cluttering the house anymore, but I haven’t organised it very well.
I do need to keep reminding myself that the garage wasn’t originally part of my 2020 challenge. Having said that I still need to keep some sort of order out there so that I know what I’m doing with what. It was a struggle and very frustrating but I did make a little bit of progress in there today.
Our Cluttered Minds Have Zero Concept of SimpleStephanie Bennett Vodt, Your Spacious Self
On the theme of thinking in a simple way, I was feeling very pleased with myself this afternoon when I took every single piece of clothing back to the shops that I bought a few weeks ago. I hadn’t worn any of it and decided that I didn’t like them as much as I thought. I have such a large surplus of current clothes to go through, so buying even one more item just wouldn’t be wise right now. I’m going to try wearing everything I actually have first to see how much I like it all and only buy what I love and need.
There’s another saying that I picked up from Your Spacious Self

I’ve definitely been finding more of a balance of being as well as doing. I managed to find some time for a nap again this afternoon. It was difficult to keep my mind quiet but sometimes you just need to listen to the messages popping up. After doing that I had a slice of cake and a cup of tea and tackled one large box from the garage, and cleared a small area in the middle again.
I also took some photos of a few items that I can sell – mix of furniture, books and toys.
I cooked a roast pork dinner which went down well. Then the girls asked me if I wanted to watch High School Musical 2 with them. It was a fun easy going film. I was impressed that they knew all the words. I remember the first film well but don’t recall any of the second one!
Now time for bubble bath and bed.
