Let's get going!!

Friday, January 26, 2007

It has been a hard week. I decided to clean out my studio to make it easier to work in there, and I didn't realize how bad it was. I have spent a lot of the week when I wasn't riding, working out or doing other household chores ironing fabric and arranging.

My life sometimes gets that way, too. Too many committments can tend to bury our true obligations to ourselves underneath the clutter. When I get my studio done, I am going to evaluate the clutter in my life and see if there is anything I can weed out. I know what obligations I have, and by "ironing" all these, maybe I can find a couple I can pass on to someone else.

It is hard when the world around us demands our care and attention to say, "No, I have to take care of myself, and to do this, I dont' have time for this obligation". But do this we must. We cannot care for our family and friends if we are ill or out of shape ourselves. We simply won't be around when they need us most.

Robert used to roll his eyes when I told him I had to go work out, or I had Pilates. Now I think he realizes how much it has done for my self image and my health. His only reply now is "Have fun!"

So, Sunday is the magic day. Studio should be done, I will be finished with working the horse show to make me eligible for year end awards, and I will have a day to get my life back in order.....

Let's get going!!

    It must feel good to get that jod accomplished but it does make life rather busy when you take on a big organizing project. I too am going to get rid of some of my clutter. I have made an appointment to take 6 boxes of four sizes of clothes to a local used clothing shop. I n return for the four sizes she will let me pick through her size 14's. I am wearing 16 right now but want some of the next size so that when these get baggy(and they will) I will then have something that does fit. WoW 100 pounds, what an amazing accomplishment. Your ability to stay focused is what will get you to your goal and keep youthere.
