Assessing the situation: Declutter life change: Step one

Two posts in one day! Not sure this will get posted today but even starting to write a second post in the same day is some kind of record I’m sure.

So, with beginning this whole process I wanted to take a moment and kind of assess the situation. I’m working on two lists.

The first is a list of things I love.

  • Jesus
  • My kids
  • Luke
  • Running
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Making things
  • My friends
  • Hiking/Camping
  • My dogs

The second is a list of thing I do.

  • I drive…I drive a lot. I take kids to and from and pick them up and drop the off and I wait.  I spend a lot of time in my car. (Ok, let’s be honest it’s a minivan.)
  • Basketball team mom stuff (this also involves driving)
  • CYT mom stuff
  • Flight mom stuff
  • Homeschool
  • Make food
  • Wash/Fold/Put away massive amounts of laundry
  • Grocery shop
  • Shop for anything any one else needs
  • Write occasionally
  • Run (when I’m registered for a race)
  • Watch TV
  • Read occasionally
  • Look at FB/Insta/Pinterest on my phone
  • Special Occasion Stuff (party plan/make cakes/buy gifts/ ect.)
  • Look for things people can’t find
  • Work
  • Take the dogs out
  • house hold chores

Obviously some of those things can’t be changed, some of them can. It’s a working list. A lot of what I do revolves around my family but I have very little time to do the things I really want to do. But, who really wants to do dishes or look for lost things. It’s just stuff you have to do when you have a family. Is having less junk really going to do anything to bring us calmness?
