ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, JANUARY 12TH, 2015
67 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:53 am
Sunset: 5:20 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Clean Off Your Desk Day. This holiday heralds the beginning of some serious spring cleaning. A tidy workspace can do wonders for productivity and peace of mind. The mess and the clutter are a distraction to our creativity and disrupts any freshness of mind space.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, just what does an empty desk mean?
I do have a lot of clutter here and have accepted a challenge from DDIL#5 to spend at least 15 minutes every day decluttering. As I’ve been taking down decorations I know that there have been more than 15 minutes spent each day. As I’ve put things away I’ve also gotten rid of other things that I no longer wanted or needed.
My desk is semi organized. I have baskets for certain things and there is several shelves that hold books I like to have handy. My biggest problem is that I hold on to things to read later on and that rarely happens.
This past week I spent some time in the kitchen decluttering and this week I hope to tackle some of the baskets on the desk and under the desk too.
I hope you all have a great new week ahead. Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2393. for challenges, they inspire me to do better
2394. for my desk, which holds a multitude of things
2395. for the ability to let go, not everyone can or will
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
