Do you ever have one of those days or...

Do you ever have one of those days or times where things start to click? Where maybe you felt confused or just discombobulated, and all of a sudden a little ray of light popped in and made things just a little clearer? I've been having those moments occur, on an infrequent basis but more commonly lately than in the past. I'm realizing things about myself, that I didn't before...
  • I want to simplify my life.
  • I want to spend less money.
  • I want to have less stuff.
  • I want to make my home a refuge for my family in this crazy world.
  • I want to have pieces I love, and pieces that I created idecorate my home.
  • I don't have to be the best at everything - I don't even have to be really good. It's okay to be just okay.
  • I want to have less obligation (or self inflicted obligation).
  • I want to have a tidy (note I didn't say immaculate!) home.
  • I want to be physically active - way more than I have been as of late.
  • I want to do more with less - in all kinds of ways.
  • I don't have to have (or want to have) a cookie cutter, catalog perfect house.
  • I love to sleep in a warm bed (love my electric blanket!!).
  • My thighs don't have to be incredible - I just have to learn to deal with them.
  • I want to learn how to cook meals out of boxes and use canned sauces - I don't have to MAKE everything.
  • I want to get more out of life.
  • I want to enjoy more of my life.
All kinds of lights coming on my life... some have been trying to flip on for quite a while and I've been taping them down. I think it's finally time, and I'm finally ready to turn them on and let them shine.

These are such wonderful things in your life to reach for. I was feeling some of these things today...just cleaning house...physically and mentally.

I can relate so well to all you are saying. I'm right there with you. I think I'm improving, but it is slow. I'm finding it somewhat difficult to deal with an almost resistance from other people in regards to my new "philosphy".

I guess people are just used to me always saying "yes" and acting a certain way and now that I'm saying yes to no (Just finished a book by that title---cracks me up) it has some people a bit flabbergasted and not sure what to do with me.

Even with the small changes I've made in the same areas you write of I do feel more in control in my life. Does all that even make sense?
