resolutions: update 1!

i keep finding stuff that is REALLY cool but that i definitely don't have a use for.
if you give me your mailing address, i make no promises, but i might send you one of these really cool things that i have no use for.

the daily resolutions i've committed to so far are going great. i can't believe what a difference it makes in my day to feel like i'm chipping away at the things that are important to me. simple things like prioritizing my family, de-cluttering my home, and writing a daily list of 5 things i am grateful for.

i was reading this blog post and it really spoke to me.
We often claim that our priorities are grandly important activities like spending time with family or exercising or carving out enough alone time to work on that big passion project we’ve been putting off. But unless you’re actually putting these pursuits first, unless you make these undertakings part of your everyday routine, they are not your actual priorities.

so, in effect, i'm making these undertakings part of my everyday routine. and i feel more fulfilled. [occasionally slightly stressed about making them fit in, but i always pull it off somehow]

plus, i'm one book and two movies in for fifty fifty, on schedule! ("A Hologram for the King" Dave Eggers was the book; "Metropolitan" and "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring again" were the movies) -- right on schedule!

Really cool stuff sounds great, but is there an easier way to share an address than publically? I'm also going through a use it or toss it phase. Or rather, donate - not toss. It's been very freeing. :-) While there is some clutter that I do keep around, like you said, it's nice to pass things on that I really have no use for anymore. The biggest push I'm making this year though is to clean out cupboards, pick up some containers, and get things ORGANIZED. It's crazy how even with an abundance of space, if you're not careful... suddenly you're wishing you had more space. Good luck on your "journey". It might be time to blog about mine - get some accountability from the internet. :-)

I believe your comment can be screened, so that it can't be publicly seen. I remember an LJ friend of mine did that when he was asking for friends' addresses.
