This is my mantra for 2020.
Finishing the unfinished.
Since I somewhat decluttered my house last year, I feel this year should about getting stuff that is swimming around in my head finished. Unfinished projects. Unfinished writing. Unfinished chores.
I have 36 things on my list so far and I’m sure I’ll add more throughout the year. The list includes: dealing with certain financial items, going through my bin of blog writings and ideas, figuring out what color to paint the living room and dealing with my feet issues among other things.
I have been putting this stuff off due to a lack of time or not knowing where to start or just plain laziness.
My first project was to clean out the two drawers in my coffee table. I’ve been throwing stuff in these drawers for the last couple of months that I didn’t have time to deal with. In the drawers I found two old journals and a new one I recently started. Greeting cards. Pens and pencils. Notepads. Money! Old bank receipts. Store receipts. Two books. Lottery tickets. Stamps. Outdated coupons.
A whole lotta junk!
I dont have a before pic bit here’s the after pic.
I’m not sure if this is the stuff I want in the drawers but for now it’s ok. I think I might want to store other things in them. I’m not sure, but at least they are clean and organized.
One thing that I do know is that it felt good to get rid of all of the old crap.
I can cross one thing off of my list.
My list of projects has been taking up space in my head for weeks, months and even years. It’s stagnant and needs to be dealt with.
I can see the postive changes in my life from letting stuff go. I hope dealing with my unfinished projects brings more postive changes and clarity.
