Honesty



As I mentioned yesterday I have been feeling reflective. Then over on Elaine's blog I saw a video from Jack Mindstore. He is offering ways to help us to have a more positive 2015, by setting goals that are important. Today he said about clearing the clutter in our lives. My first thought was, pah I don't have any, we only moved here a few weeks ago and I took 5 car loads to the dump before we moved. However, I sat and pondered for a while. Intrigued by what I had heard on the video I listened to the first post I had missed yesterday. I listened to the video twice. During the second listening I reached onto the shelf next to me and pulled out a notebook I used to use at uni. I used to write my reflections about what I had learnt in there. I started by making my wheel of life as prompted as Jack spoke. I paused the video several times to give myself time to think as I made my wheel. I suspected that my life wheel was out of balance- however actually making one showed me just how out of balance it is. This is something for me to address over the coming year.

I then went out in the kitchen to make dinner, as I was sorting the meal I looked up and realised that my new home isn't as clutter free as I would like to think. For instance just look at this window ledge;

It certainly wasn't clutter free. So I set about organising all of the things which have accumulated on there and put them in their rightful places. It now is a much better place, let's face it if my plans to grow more vegetables in 2015 are going to come about I shall need that space for my seedlings!


Then as I put away the kitchen foil I realised I have another place in my home collecting clutter;

 
I am off to organise that now, I wait eagerly for the next instalment of Jack's wisdom over on Elaine's blog.


How do you see your 2015 panning out?
