I know I’ve been very quiet. I’ve been trying to get my ducks in order. Trying to get your ducks in order is harder than trying to herd cats. (You heard it here first.) I’m reading this lovely book called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. It’s quite a Zen way of looking at tidying. You’re not just cleaning. You are changing your life by changing the space around you. I am really enjoying it, though it does frighten me. (I have a very difficult time letting go of certain things.) I’m also reading Your First 1000 Copies by Tim Grahl (because I am sucktastic at marketing) and Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare (because she rocks). How’s that for variety?! *ggg
Anyway, back to tidying. The key is to go through everything you own and ask yourself ‘Does this item bring me joy’, starting with your clothes and slowly work your way through your entire house. It’s tough, but I think it’ll be worth it once I get the ball rolling. Watch out shoes! You’re next. Evil laugh.
