Give me passion, pursuits, wholeness, healing, compassion, mercy, reconciliation, audacious goals, beauty, love, grace, kindness, tender touch…give me those instead, and let me not be distracted by less.
I found this quote today while reading one of my favorite blogs. It was on Small Notebook‘s site and was more about how to reconcile stuff versus the pursuit of fullness in life. After some tough personal decisions this past week, I found it hit the mark on what I am going through. I find myself in a rather peculiar spot in my life. I have given myself a “clean slate” and pretty much have carte blanche to create some changes.
In the meantime, I spent this weekend getting the bedroom organized. I went through my closet and dresser, de-cluttered a bunch of clothes I no longer wear and cleaned top to bottom. Organized my SCA outfits and am in the midst of seven loads of laundry. There is once again a huge pile to go to the DW. Speaking of which, did a bit of thrifting this weekend. Found some long sleeve shirts, Hillard & Hanson shoes, a killer dress and another glass lidded jar from Italy. Spent about thirty total on 6 shirts, 1 pair of shoes and the couple other items. I scored big time.
Next month is all about organizing paperwork. Getting things ready for the tax man. meh…gotta go fold the laundry.
