Who wants to read that?
OK, so instead..basically this is it.
I've just had a couple jolts of reality. (Someone unexpectedly passing and another who is gravely ill.)
You never know what's next. (You can do all the right things and still bad things can happen.)
It's stupid to stress about silly things. (What color to paint a wall? I need stop thinking about it and just paint it!)
It's idiotic to put things off for later. (Waiting until there's a perfect time to create art or write, just do it!)
It's silly to hang onto stuff (like 16 mailboxes that I have in my basement... what was the plan for them again?)
It's asinine to worry about the money I've spent and hope to recoup it. (Forget yard sales and take the junk to Goodwill)
It's foolish to compare myself to others (What makes ME happy?! not what is "in style" or popular.)
So I'm getting rid of stuff. (All the "projects" that I said I would someday do?)
I'm only acquiring things that I love. (Not things just because they are a bargain.)
All the extra stress I've created for myself. (Streamlining my landscaping so that I don't spend every nice day outside just doing that.)
I've stopped Following some blogs. (The ones that made me feel bad about myself and made me think I need more "stuff" than I already have).
I'm cherishing others blogs. (That have brought me wonderful friends and kindred spirits.)
I'm Following Pinterest! (Because it inspires me, and gets my creative juices going and sometimes makes me laugh and other times makes me go "Ahhhh".)
So...just making my life more simple and making time for what I really enjoy.
